I will replace my Goodyear OEM tires with the Primacy in the next month or two.

I was wanting to do these in +10 mm - ie, 235s on my Xi -they don't make them - only 225 or 245... we'll see how I go - I reckon I have 5k miles before I need tires - which will be about May/June - if you get them - keep us posted please!

Are you sure your original tires are conti's dws? I have a 2008 528i and they are conti's contour contacts.

I have 51,000 miles on Goodyears OEM and they still of lots of tread. I don't love the Goodyears and will probably go with Pilot Sport A/S Plus(Ultra High Performance All-Season) , though the Conti gets good reviews.

1) Michelin Primacy MXM is a very good tire. Read the reviews on Tire Rack.

2) Continental DWS is not OEM.

3) I have Continental DWS on 2 cars and Michelin Primacy MXM on one (comes OEM on MB), and I would still choose the Continental DWS.
