New Michelins

I just replaced my OEM 215/40/18 front tires with 225/40/18 Michelin non-Run Flats, and the OEM 245/35/18 back tires with 245/40/18 Michelin non-Run Flats. This is on my 2009 135i with M Sport package, and the replacement tires are Michelin Pilot Sport All Season tires.

What a HUGE difference in ride quality and quietness. I got 25,000 miles out of the original run-flats, but would have swapped them out earlier if I had known what a big difference they would make.

Best of all, my local BMW dealer did the mounting/balancing swap for $120. Thanks to others on this forum who pointed me in this direction.
