anyone go to the Pirelli Pzero RFT? I have a set on my 550i paid for by the dealer after a number of bubbles with the Goodyears. I am being told now that the Pzero's have been discontinued. Anyone heard?

It is like posted by chuck, the M ssp's are the ones to have.
I have done 15 k on them just before changing back to my winters.
Before those I drove on M primacies, the ssp tire suits me the best.

In 19" All season RFT, has anyone gone with the RE960 A/S, in the 245/45/19 size? A tiny bit larger aspect but it seems to be a great option to the LS2.
Obviously 2 sets of dedicated tires non RFT summer winter offer the finest combination of handling and comfort, but IMO the LS2 are pretty nice in dry highway ride comfort.
Will wait to offer opinion in Cleveland winter.

Sure a sealant kit is ok, but had a flat in town the other day, turned around, drove to the dealer no problem, RFT is nice if convenient to dealer.

IMO there is no perfect answer, save a exact match wheel and tire spare for a blow out on sunday over a holiday weekend in the boonies.

I think for all seasons, the choice has been Pilot Sport All Season Plus.
