Question Quiet n Comfort Tires for 650


So far I like the 650i a lot. The only things are the run flat tires are not the most comfortable and quiet. You know 650 doesn't have the comfort suspension mode like M6.

Considering the remote chance of a blow tire, later on I may switch to regular tires to address the above two. Since the Michelin tires on another car make me happy, how about the "Pilot® Sport A/S Plus 245/40ZR19 94Y":


Wonder if you could share your opinions / experience on this topic?

BTW, I drive a little fast, but not a racer, so if a little performance degrade is necessary, that'd be OK.

Thank you so much.

Cross-posting is frowned upon here, and this appears to not be the first time.

You also may want to do a search first, as these tires have been discussed here before at least a few times, including by myself.

Yes, the fact that you post the same thing in 3 different forums is ridiculous. Do not ever post anything about your BMW model in a forum that is made for a different BMW model than what you own, how in the world is someone going to answer your question if they have a different model then yours????
