Initial Review, 200 Miles on Tires
March 10, 2011

Very comfortable tire so far. I have driven with the M5 in normal mode setting and the tires have been phenomenal (haven't tested them in P500 mode). So far I have driven through dry and extremely wet conditions and this tire performs even better in the rain. They appear to outperform the 19 inch Z rated Michelin Pilot Sport A/S tires I originally had in both comfort and durability, and the Sumitomos have a smaller sidewall.

Unfortunately, I haven't done enough driving to review the tread wear yet but I will update this review as time passes, I can attest that noise is low, traction is very good and the sidewall does a great job of protecting the new 20 inch deep dish Dynamic Performance rims I installed with these tires. Overall, I am very satisfied and would buy these tires again, in fact I'm thinking of buying one spare for the front and one spare for the back (staggered).
