Theses surveys are from a combined 13,000,000 mile experience from users like me or you. To claim our opinions are somehow more important is just plain foolish.

BTW, my current inventory of tires for my BMWs are:

So, I do have firsthand experience in how different tires perform in back-to-back comparisons.
My point is that those surveys are anecdotal WITHIN a category. For instance, the surveys for people owning Michelin Pilot Sport2 ZP are compiled with owners of Bridgestone RE050A and others in the Summer Performance category. You can't use the surveys to compare PS2 to Pilot Alpine3. And surveys don't trump actual performance.

FYI, I've had the RE050 and PS2 on my current 335d. I currently have Blizzak LM60 snows. On my previous 330xi I've had Conti All Seasons (OEM), Goodyear F1-GSD3, Michelin PA2 and xIce. So I too know what I'm talking about. Let's not get in a pissing match.
