What tires did your F10 come with?

Getting ready to head to the dealership to pick up my F10 535 M Sport. I just found out the car has the Michelin primacy ( Run-flats of course ) . Wondering what others are getting from the factory and if these are any good? Pics coming tomorrow......

Let's just say that you got lucky. If you must have run-flats these are the ones you want

My F10 came with 19" Pirelli Zero winter RFTs. The car is now on summer 20" Dunlop RFTs. Possibly because of the difference in winter/summer rubber, but I've got a feeling that the Dunlops run smoother.

My Msport came with the Michelin P2's. I was checking the air pressure in my tires today and noticed they were 42/44 (F/R) and was kind of shocked. I instantly lowered them to 36/38 continued on my way. Later, after I got home I looked into it more and on tirerack its calling for psi to be 42/44 based on top speed.

Anyone have some extra info on psi with these PS2's at speeds in excess of 100mph?

it is 35 front/39 rear on COLD tires. when tires are hot (after they have been driven on) the pressure will be higher .... keep that in mind
check and set the pressure in the morning - its your best bet

Mine came with Continental ContiSportContact, 18inch M-sport wheel. Since I'm having vibration issues with it, can't tell if it's really good or not...

Mine came with Goodyear RFTs. Changed out for a set of Michelin Super Sports. Took off winter wheels and put them on yesterday! Super impressed so far.

I just put a set of Michelin Super Sports on my E90 M3. (I'm on here because my next car will probably be a 550i.) I was already impressed with the PS2s that came on the car; the Super Sports are even better. Yesterday was the first time I did any real driving on them, and it was pouring here in New England. The performance in the wet amazed me. Can't wait to see how they'll be once they're properly broken-in after a few hundred miles.

I noticed several people with 17 and 18inch contis have had vibration issues. I have 19" Goodyear ls2 and no issues so far.

Interesting - I thought all the 19"ers were getting the Goodyears and having problems and assumed that's what I'd get. Guess there is hope that my 535ix M-sport might come with something else next month.

Only 200 miles in the Michelins 19's but so far so good. Very smooth and quite. LA county roads are horrible and I have hit a few craters and no damage so far. I bought the wheel and tire protection package as a result of the lousy roads here.

I thought the roads in LA were relatively smooth. I know in NYC they are horrible. I originally had Gdyr LS2's on my 535xi. potholed 5 of them. Drove to Charlotte, my buddy hit a pothole in Richmond. They swapped me out for a set of Bridgestone Potenzas 19". No LS2's available. Potenzas aren't bad. I have the tire insurance.....
