My experience with them was very good. 1/3 wear after 20,000kms. 2009 X5 came with Dunlop Grandtrek WT M3's ... anyone have any comments about these tires (haven't installed them yet)?

My mistake: just checked my records, and my Pirelli Scorpions had 30,784 kms on them with 1/3 wear when I traded my 2003 X5. Of course, driving snow tires at 7*C or less (as they're designed) will give good wear. They'll get my vote ...
