I am sorry if this post is off topic and does not really concern the E39 ///M5, but since this is a high traffic forum with more people who may have first hand experience, I'll post my question here.
Three months ago, I ordered four new Michelin Pilot Sport's for my E28 ///M5 (front 205/55ZR16, rear 225/50ZR16). Apparently Michelin has troubles with supplying these and even a phonecall to Michelin Netherlands kept me in the dark.
During the weekend, I read the April issue of Sport Auto magazine and in a comparison of high performance tires, they where raving the Bridgestone potenza S03.
Since Michelin stays in the dark about the supply of my tires, I am concidering to cancel my order for the four Michelins and order the Bridgestone Potenza S03 instead. I know that with the Michelin Pilot Sport, i cannot go wrong on a rear wheel driven car, but with the Bridgestones, I am not sure.
Does anyone of you have first hand experiences with comparing both types. For me, rain performance is not high priority as the E28 ///M5 is my garage queen and will be driven in the dry only.
Thanks in advance,
1990 E34 ///M5 3.6
1985 E28 ///M5 M88/3
