F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
The 2 Series coupe is the replacement for the E82/E88 1 series coupe. Production starts in November 2013 on the 228i (N20) and M235i (N55) coupes. Look for them in dealerships in February 2014. The convertible F23 2 series will follow in the fall of 2014.

Firestone's Firehawk Indy 500

Does anyone here run on these? The reviews on Tirerack are pretty good. Do you like them? How quiet are they compared to Michelin's PSS?

I put them on my Porsche Boxster about 2 months ago. So far I love them. They transformed my car! Nice and quite and great performance. I will be putting them on my 3 series next.

That's good to know. I plan to replace my Michelin PSS with these as well. I figure I can't go wrong with the good reviews and price.

Ran the previous version my e39. Great for the price.
If you are in no rush I'd wait for the new Pilot Sport 4s. They are an upgrade of the PSS.

The Firehawk is a Bridgestone Potenza in disguise (a boost for the Firestone brand), and is sold as such outside of the US.

I replaced my PSS with these on my '06 ZHP.

I only have a couple of weeks on them, but so far, so good. They aren't PSS, but I paid $432 for staggered 18" set OTD.
Compared to $900 for PSS at Costco.

One highway trip... no issues. They seem responsive and ride well enough. They don't quite have the progressive feel before the rears start breaking away, like the PSS, but that's a tough comparison.

These are very good tires for the price. I heard they have less predictability then the PSS but still an excellent performing tire
