Conti 3s on my 11 E92 ZCP.

Looked them up on tirerack - it says "shouldn't be used in near freezing temperatures." Interesting.

i have the contis on my zcp m3, which i took delivery of through ED on June 29th. not such an issue to me since I will kill the first set of tires pretty quickly probably. and the reviews of the Contis are not bad.

What size tire are you planning to put on the rear? GTS uses 285/30, which I believe is only available for PS2, not the ContiSport 3. So, if you want to run the stock GTS tire size, and you get the ContiSport 3s, you might want to replace all four tires anyway. If so, you might as well move up to the 255s on the front as well.

I understand that tire brand is typically the "flavor of the day" so you can end up with either the Conti 3 or PS2. However, just curious if anyone has found a way to ask for the tire brand of your choice for ED or regular orders?

I got Conts 3. I used the tires in the snow (inadvertently) and they performed great for summer tires

I'm happy with the tires, but they are noisy especially under braking. On my set set for the rears, sidewall puncture and screw thru the thread block. Thank goodness for tire/wheel insurance. Cost about ~416 a piece from the dealer.

You going with PS2s, PZeros, or something else entirely? Just curious.

I'm leaning toward the Conti Sportcontact 5ps or DWs. The DWs are on national back order until the end of Sept. I may still get the PS2s or the new PZeros as well...just didn't want to spend $1600.
