I just ordered a set Contis ExtremeContact DWS non-RFTs for my 535i. I have the same tires on my X5 Sport, the performance exceded my expectation on my X5. It's quieter, better on rain, and better on snow compared to the OEM RFTs. I gave up a bit of side wall stiffness since it's not RFTs, but it's worth the switch.

I will report back in a few weeks once I get them installed on my 535i and running them on snow/ice.
