Which RFTs ?? Pilot Sport or Potenza
 
My dealer is going to replace all the current RFTs on the car I am buying. It is CPO 2010 335i with M package. Looks like the choices would be Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 ZP or Bridgestone Potenza RE050A RFT. Which is better in terms of ride, noise, and wear?

Bridestones are terrible terrible tires (had them on 2 cars, RE050A's) - get the PS2's, I have had both and the Michelins are better in ride, comfort, noise and handling and don't cup and wear out like the bridestones do. (Probably why the Michelins are 30% more expensive, because they are worth every penny!)

1) Congratulations on finally finding the right car!
2) Michelins all the way. The PS2 is in a different league from the RE050A.

Thanks for your responses. Read a couple more reviews online that pretty much said the same.
If all goes well, should have her by next weekend!
