Pirelli P Zero's. They're getting swapped out for PSS's as soon as possible. They'll likely be out of tread by around 10k anyway knowing my past experience with crap Pirellis.

i got p zeros on mine (2012 took deliv memorial day weekend) and at 6k they are starting to get a little thin. but i really like them. if the 3 OEM tires (contis, pirelli, much) i got what i would consider middle of the road. looking forward to contrasting the super sports though. or i may even consider the bridgestones.

Really hope mine comes with Michelins! I'm still trying to get my posting privileges worked out. Stealing a family members account FTW!

My '13 E92 came with Michelin's. They just said Pilot Sport, and not Super Sport which surprised me. I guess I PS2's. I'll have to compare tread patterns when it gets back to the US.

I am taking delivery of a 2013 E92 this week. I just asked the dealer and learned that the car arrived with P Zeros.

Anybody have an idea why BMW is switching to the Pirelli's?

I can't wrap my head around why they keep changing manufacturers year to year.

The Pirelli's have been coming on M3's for a few years and are much better option than the Conti's. You should be happy with anything other than Conti's.

When I put a set of PS2's on my B8 S4 they just said 'Pilot Sport' as well, so I'm guessing those are PS2s. I think Michelin is still making PS2's, right?

I got PZero's for an early July build E92. I have the predecessors (P-700s) on my other coupe (E21 Euro) and I like them just fine.

They're aren't changing. The 3 tires mentioned are the ones that are optioned by BMW. This is not the first time they've all been available.

Ditto. I will probably wear out the PZero's quickly (maybe 5,000 miles including a track session or two) before I upgrade to the PSS

Bridgestone's a little better in total dry grip, but main advantage is they're better at handling extended lapping sessions and track abuse. Michelins significantly better wet tire

Lots of reviews out there, search the wheel/tire forum

+1! RE-11 are really reliable tires that refuse to wear out They have great grip.

I also hear a lot of good things about Yokohama Advan AD08's
