Tire Recommendations Pirelli, Michelin, or Continental?

I am looking at three options for my 2012 535 Xdrive.

1. The Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus
2. The Michelin PILOT SPORT A/S 3
3. The Continental DWS

I will be switching over to Snow Tires in the Winter so winter traction is not an issue. I am mainly looking for good tread life, soft ride, and quiet.

Any out there used these and have any thoughts?

I'm driving on AS3, have about 10k on them with no issues. A big improvement over the Eagle LS2.

You cant go wrong with either of them, but I personally use the A/S 3 tires. Had them on for about 10k miles too and the tires still look new. Very good tread wear

Had nothing but good experiences with both the AS3 and DWS. Really popular with our customers too

AS3

I know I said good things about the Michelin AS3 earlier in the post, but at around 20k usage, 2 of my tires measure 3/32 tread wear left...

Not thrilled with replacing tires so soon, nor the dealer (maintenance pkg) apparently not rotating them.
