Tires on Newly Delivered M3's

Hey guys, just found out my 2011 E90 M3 is on the Elektra and should be here on 11/20! Quick question, what kinds of tires have you all been seeing on the latest batch of vehicles? I'm hoping for Michelin PS2's over the Conti's but I know you can't request them specifically.

I should point out that mine has the standard 18'' wheels.

Waiting to hear from some of the newly released 2012s on what they got. We should probably have an idea by Monday.

Sweet! I have had a few Mercedes' with Conti's and never liked those tires...I wouldn't mind the Pirelli's either.

OCT build '11 E90 had PS2. 18's. If that helps.

I thought most were hoping for the conti's though?

I think the Michelins are the preferred tire. They were for me.

I think that's always been the case. Being that the PSS came out recently to replace the PS2s, I thought the likelihood of PS2s on M3s would go down. However that does not appear to be the situation.

Ok--Mine was production week 39 also; most of ya'll seem to have the 19's or ZCP; wondering if the standard 18's are more likely to have PS2s?

Had 2 E90 m3's now and both had Contis - great tyre. Drove a car with the PS2's and the conti's definately make the steering a little bit heavier which i prefer.

Have the standard 18s ever come with anything except PS2s? I know for sure 19s are either Michelin, Contis or Pirellis. I don't think I've seen any 18s come with anything except Michelin. That doesn't mean they don't but I've been making a point to take notice.
