New tires for 2013 X1: recommendations?

I will be moving to Florida (Orlando) and my X1 will be due for new tires. I am looking to get them in 235/45/R18 to go just a bit wider. I want the tires to handle great in dry pavement but specially well in wet as well (Florida downpours can be incredible sometimes) and also to last no less than 40K miles if possible; my original Pirelli Cinturato C7 seem to be wearing out at 25K on the odometer. I was looking at the Pirelli C7 Non Run Flat in the 235/54/R18 size but again it seems they wear out fast according to some reviews. What would you guys recommend I get that would fit the features I'm looking for?

Thanks for pointing out this choice. How do they wear out? Their UTQG is 400 vs. the Pirelli's 700. Love their tread patter though; you can see it will channel water out very well. They remind me of the Nokian NRZ-i tires; best tire I had for wet weather!

I've not put much mileage on them so far, but I heard good things in the reviews before buying.

One thing for sure, I'm willing to trade some tread life for performance.

According to this comparison from TireRack, the BFGoodrich have a better treadwear score:



If they last longer than the OEM Pirellis, I would be happy .

I also installed BFG Comp-2 A/S on my X1. Very happy so far. Better ride and better handling than OE Goodyears. Not enough time to say anything about how long they will last, but at about $100 each, a complete set is not much more than one run-flat.

Another question: is it normal the the OEM Pirelli Cinturato P7 wear down quickly and not last that long compared to other tires? I've read in tire reviews that they lasted only about 25K miles for some.

Michelin PSS are a longer wearing summer performance tire (aprrox 30k miles), and also test neaR the best in wet. Lucky you don't neeed all season to get some snow work.

Man, I'd buy the Michelins as great value and use for the money.

Most other people in US can't do that. I leave for the winter, and keep summer performance tires on both cars.

I have the Pirelli P7 run flat summer performance tires, works like a charm even down to snowy 30degs one day (road still wet not ice), and hal;f worn at 18k miles and 5 or so track days./
