Im trying to decide between Bridgestone RE760 sport, Continental ExtremeContact DW, Michelin Pilot Sport A/S3.

Anybody have any experience with any of these? Or any other recommendations?

Thanks in advance.

I am on my second (rear) set of the Conti' DWs and am very pleased with them (40K+ miles). They wear well and provide good grip but perhaps not as much grip as the Michelin PSS which are worth consideration as well.

I have the DW on my M5 and they are great! cant go wrong!

Extreme Contact DWS is also an amazing tire! Really incredible performance in all situations as well as amazing tread wear. I have them mounted on 2 different cars as we speak(540i, and Jetta tdi).

These tires have saved my tail in the snow many times. My Pilot Sports would hydroplane in many rainy situations that the DW and DWS just slay.

Reasonable price along with killer grip and treadlife. Cant go wrong.

Another vote for Conti DW (or DWS depend on location) I don't have them on the //M5 currently, but they would be my next set. I have them on my Z32TT.

Michelin PSS' are well worth the premium over those tires listed. Look into them too, I have nothing but positive things to say about them.

I testing the Pilot Sport AS3 was able to out perform the DW in the dry and wet add to that significantly better tread wear and the Michelin Promise warranty package the Pilot Sport AS3 gets my vote
