All the cars I've seen had the same Bridgestones with 20" 333m wheels. All the 5.0s with 20s and X5Ms had the same Bridgestones. All the 3.5 SA with 214 style 20" wheels and diesels with 20s had the Dunlops. The 19" M sport cars have Continetals. I find the 20 Bridgestones to be be the best handling and feeling tires.

Alignment will have an effect on tracking and handling but not on comfort/ride quality. My comments were more oriented toward ride quality.
