Continentals on a 2011 535i

Hi y'all! It seems my 2011 535i is in need of new tires and I'm a lil unsure about which route to go. Currently have the oem dunlops on them, but I'd rather not spend 2k on 4 tires. I have 20's installed. Advice?

Iíve used Continental Extreme Contact DWS and Michelin Pilot Sport All Season.

I prefer the Michelin, but in my opinion, both seem to be good tires. Quieter than stick runflats, good grip, not noisy in my opinion.

Just my experience.

Looking at the continentals rn. You reckon they'd fare well despite the staggered set up? My fronts are 245/35/20 and rears are 275/30/20

I've been running DWS06s for over 3 years now and I absolutely love them. They perform quite comparably to Michelin Pilot A/S4... but for noticeably less money.

With this car being my daily driver it was a no brainer to me. But either one of the 2 tires are excellent choice and you can't go wrong either way.

I've been using tire rack for many years now and usually have great prices and ship fast! Michelin is a very excellent brand and choice, Continentals are a great overall bang for your buck!

Just installed the DWS06 and before I was running mismatch tires however the same for each axle, (2018 Continentals on the rear) (Stagger Fit) and early (2019) Michelin run-flats on the front, after finding out the torque wasn't right on my tires, and after installing fresh tires, (all Continental now), the ride is so smooth! no harsh noises, paid under 1200 for the set (245/40/19 front and 275/35/19 rear)
