Request for those running OEM 19s w/ PS2

I am curious what load ratings people have on their PS2s that came from the factory. I have front 93Y, rear 98Y which is an XL rating. When I was looking to buy a pair of rears on tirerack, I got a warning when I tried to check out with PS2s with those load ratings:

"The following tire you have selected has a higher load rating than the vehicle's Original Equipment (O.E.) tires. This typically results in increased ride harshness, which some customers may find undesirable."

I got the same comment from another local retailer as well. They make the PS2 in OEM sizes in 2 or 3 different ratings, but when you put in for OEM pairs on TR the 93F/98Y combo is what comes up (yet you still get that odd warning.)

Not a big deal really, just curious what others have on their car. Maybe BMW changed for the 09 model year? Please share what you have. Thanks.

BMW recently switched from PS2 to ContiSportContact 3 as OE tires for the M3. But load rating is the same - 93Y/98Y.

Do "find OE tires" after you select your model year and this is what you get:

That's exactly what I got (Conti and PS2), but then add them to your cart and then try and get past the check out page. You get this. The same warning comes up for the Contis. Would love to know what people got on their car from the factory, esp those with 08 builds.

There are 3 different PS2s are in Tirerack if I remember correctly.
1. Regular PS2
2. PS2 for Porsche (I don't own P-car so I don't really care what's different about)
3. PS2 for BMW (if you look at your OE tires, you'll see "EXTRA LOADS" on the sidewall)

Thanks isugoo. Still wondering when adding the 98Y load tires (BMW) do I get the warning in the pic above? Again, not that big of a deal, just curious if anybody out there with PS2s has a lesser (non-XL) load rating than this. Again, it wasn't just tire rack - a couple of other local stores gave me the same info/warning (must use a common system.)
