You have a good taste! I love this color. Probably the best Individual color. Frozen silver comes at second. My only concern is that Ive never seen both in real life. Pics from F10 M5 with moonstone looked great too. If my next car is F10 M-sport, the color is definitely this.

First of all very nice car. How do you like the michelin PSS?

From the pictures it looks like you have the K1 version of the tires with 3 wider grooves and 1 narrow groove. The normal PSS has 4 grooves about the same width and deeper tracks.

I have ordered the same wheels and tires for my F10. How is the ride compared with the standard runflats? Is there alot of road noise? is it a softer ride than with the runflats?

Lots of questions here.

Yes, sorry i have 295/30-R20. I didn't know that there was a difference in the tires before i read a thread on this board. But i got a good price on the tires so i hope there is not a big difference in driving between the K1 and non K1 tires.

This Thread ferrari spec = K1

No K1 295/30/20, only a few sizes get K1 spec.
But I see that 295/30/20 size comes in two different spec: "*" (star=BMW) and "MO" (Mercedes I think) spec.

your'e right. Look at these 2 pictures. the first picture shows a (*)BMW? behind Supersport, but if you look at the track on the second picture it has the same trackpattern as the K1 Ferrari spec in the thread in my link.

#1 http://www.flickr.com/photos/84068930@N05/7698686212/

#2 http://www.flickr.com/photos/84068930@N05/7698703208/

when i look at the picture here i see that the trackpattern on the M5 looks the same as my tires.

http://www.5seriesblog.com/2011/11/1...to-gallery/2/#

Does it mean that the trackpattern doesn't necessarily mean that its a ferrari spec tire?

I assume those flickr pics are your tires. Looks great on those BBS.

The ★ marking indicates that it's a BMW spec tire, so in 295/30/20 size it's the same tires as the M5 gets.

If it was a Ferrari speced tire, it would have had K1 marked instead of a ★ on the tire sidewall.

Those are the specs of my tires:
2x MICHELIN 245/35R20 95Y PILOT SUPER SPORT UHP FSL
2x MICHELIN 285/30R20 99Y PILOT SUPER SPORT UHP FSL
No "K1's".

The ride is a little bit softer than the 17" runflats. The ride feels really planted and the grip is really good. The noise of the tires is slightly there if the are cold. If they get warm, it disapears. I had the same effect on my M3 with the PSS.

If the front tire doesn't have K1 marking, are you sure they're 95Y, and not 91Y. I believe the 245/35/20 PSS without K1 has a 91Y load index.

Thanks for the answers! I have 18" runflats now so guess it will be even softer.
