Recommendation on Tires?

I have a 645Ci Convert and I am switching tires this week because I damaged two of them and have to get a new set. Currently running OEM Potenza RFT hate them.

I am looking for some quick feedback from the 6-series audience out there on three types of tires that I am considering, all non-RFT.
1. The new Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position
2. Michelin Pilot Sport PS2
3. Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus
I like the look of the Potenza S-04 Pole Position but there is very in the way of test reports or rating on it. I have had a number of people try to steer me to the A/S Plus but Im not sure it is as high performance as the others. I live in South Carolina where the weather is good 9 months of the year.

Anyone have experience with the above tires? Any words of wisdom or feedback would be appreciated!

Thanks!

tires

PS2s are on my M and my 5. Great tires. Only ones I buy now. Love the quiet, sticky performance feel I get with them. With only 5,000 miles on the 6 still have the OEM tires.
They suck! Michelin someday but with staggered 19s not looking forward to the price tag on those babies. Can't really attest to the total mileage numbers since that isn't really a big factor for me. Good luck.

Yea, all the high performance that fit the 19" 6 series sport average around $400+ per tire installed. Some more some less. If you get them from BMW count on 20% more!

The PS2 are the best all round performance tire I have ever tried. The new Pilot Super Sport and S-04 Pole Position are getting great reviews from what I've seen but because they are so new there is a limited amount of feedback available.

Considering where you live I would not bother installing all seasons. If you go for a full summer tire leave the 6er parked if it happens to snow.

I had Michellin PS2's all the way around but the rears were worn down - replaced the two rear tires with the new Michellin Super Sports and so far they seem great.
