all of them in HK say no good but in US and UK they all say it is a good tyre to have and also 50% cheaper than PSS which is good if you burn rubber more like me. The V12s is about 70% of PSS performance which is ok if you like to not have 100% grip like PSS and RE11. Can play with the car drifting easier.
I will only put PSS on Sports car which F10 is not so not worth the extra $$$.

Pingu, did you receive it yet?
7.2k include shipping? how much is shipping?
I shipped through myus.com last time cost 8k for tires, 2.7k for myus shipping
i will get PSS when my current set wear out, still can last 2yrs maybe, they last so long..
my offsize 19 225/45 19 255/40 is only like 60% of price on PSS compared to your full 20-21 sizes.. otherwise expensive too

I got them last Monday, it only took 3 working days so fast but have not installed yet, will drive the OEM until May, then I change.
shipping was 375usd for 2 set of tyres.
I have installed the V12 on Stepwgn and they are very good for grip but not as good as RE11 but the V12 are 65% less $$$.
A lot more quieter than my old RE11 and DZ101.
Very happy with them so far.

I will update the BMW in July after installed them.

yes but I shipped 2 set so it works out only $187.5usd for 1 set.
also HK always give you old years tyres unlike US which my 1s was only 4 months old from the factory.
