Michelin Pilot Super Sport 20"(Ferrari)question?

So I've finally decided to go with a set of Michelin Pilot Super Sport for my 2012 535xi.

I have some staggered rims that are 20x9 and 20x10.5.

I'll be going with 245/35-20 front and 285/30-20 rear.

It seems like the front in that size is a OEM dimension for Ferrari. From what I understand there is a Ferrari OEM in 245/35-20 and a different part number for the same dimension that isn't Ferrari OEM?

Not sure if there's a difference? Has anyone bought fronts in that size and heard about the Ferrari OE version or is it all the same?

I just bought the same exact tire/size. I was told theres no difference just that its an OE tire for Ferrari just like how certain tires have a star on it if its OE Bmw supposedly...

My tires came and no where on the tire label did it mention Ferrari or anything. My guess it could just me a tirerack thing...

It's the prestige ... since if you cannot afford to buy the entire Ferrari car, that's the next best thing you can buy

Is there a K1 spamp/marking? That's the code for OEM Ferrari tire.

I don't think there is...not sure...I'll have them Friday. According to Tirerack they're Ferrari tires...I think Tirerack carries them as replacement for the Michelin OE on Ferrari. At the end of the day...they're a set of Michelin PSS...it just happens to be a size and model that is a direct Ferrari configuration.

lol...of course!

I think Tirerack just carries that size as a Ferrari replacement.

The tires the cars come with from the factory probably have the K1 stamp and the Tirerack version has the same specs and size.

Just my guess.

I guess I'll see Friday!

As long as I didn't just buy a set of tires that are specifically made for Ferrari and where the specs are slightly different than standard Michelin PSS. From all the reading I've done...I should be fine.

So I got the tires...and yes...they have the K1 marking for Ferrari OEM!

Should this mean anything to me or can I consider these to be a standard Michelin Pilot Super Sport?

Maybe I'm just over thinking this?

So you don't have the K1 marking on your tires?
