I second Jokergerm. I previously had two sets of Hankook ventus v12 that i ran for way too long, I think I got use to the lack of quality ride. Eventually I took my car to the shop because I thought I had major suspension problems, they recommended that I start with replacing tires, I chose the MP SS and they were dead on. Night and day difference.

I now don't think its worth putting anything less on your car if you plan to push the M, it's almost unsafe.

I know it's not an apples to apples comparison, but how will traction compare to R888's? I ran those on my c6 because supercharging made the first two gears with runflats unusable. Now that it's been almost 9,000 miles at less than 2/32 left, I'm thinking about putting PSS's on those like I did last week for my M5. 30,000 miles is quite a bit better life than 9,000, but will straight line traction / cornering traction be much worse?

Im not sure about R888. I just know that the traction from DSW to PSS is like going from a Open diff to a LSD. I can turn a corner and give it WOT and not break loose. I don't mean a full lock corner but a decent turn.

They are so sticky that rocks stick to them in my driveway really badly

I am on Dinan Stage 2 suspension and H&Rspacers. Does anyone know if I would have any rubbing or issues if I went with the Michelin Pilot Super Sports 295 35R-19's on OEM wheels? I've had the PSS 285-19's on order since Oct and they are still expecting 2 or 3 more months before they are in stock.

2013 F10 M5 Singapore Gray: VF Engineering HEX Stage 1, RPI GTM Black Edition exhaust, KW HAS, Dinan Sway Bars, IND Black Chrome, Sprint booster, Matt Schnell competition spacers, ESS stainless steel brake lines, EBC Red stuff ceramic pads, M Performance carbon fiber rear spoiler, RKP front lip spoiler, BMC air filters, charcoal filter delete, sprint booster, V1 w/Blendmount, BIM coding all options, Pedaul Haus pedals

Gone but never forgotten:
