Replacement tires for rear, X5M

My rear tires are corded and I need to replace. What should I replace them with?

I turn the car in (it's a lease) in about 10 months.

Thanks.

Get the stock Bridgestone, cheap and no issues with BMW when you return the car. What are your plans after this? M5?

Which Bridgestones? Thanks..

And, I'm not sure yet what I'm going to replace with. My thoughts are:
1) Buy it out.
2) Lease another one
3) Porsche Panamera

I don't want an M5 cause I have a pure sports car and if I'm gonna drive a 5 platform, it better be the X which suits my comfort style.

But I've been an X5 loyalist since 2001. The X5M is my third X5 and when I say the car was purpose built for me, I'm only half kidding. But in the same breath, I also have an Escalade ESV for the mountain trips and two 911's... So, I don't know. I might eliminate the need for an all purpose, everyday SUV. I can use the Escalade when I need a big car (though it's huge!!!) and use the 993 911 as my daily driver...

What should I get? lol.

I bought a set of used "turn in" tires for my X..paid about $450 installed for four tires with about 5/32 all across...they had lots of patches in them, but they were only on the truck for a week...saved me from spending good money to give to BMW..

If you're turning it in I'd hunt ebay and see what you can find in your size that matches the fronts...FWIW they MUST be RFT if that's what was on the vehicle as new (this according to my BMW dealer) and I believe they have to be a matched set (all same brand/model)....

Keep the X5. Don't you have issue with only 2 seats in back? So Panamera won't work.

On my X5 4.8is I went to the Continental EXTREME CONTACT DWS. THe old Michelins were like $500 each for the back. The Conty's were $200 or somewhere around there for the 315 20inchers so that save my bacon. The DWS stands for Dry/Wet/Snow So I could use them instead of having to pay for a separate set of snow tires. When I got the 2006 X5 4.8is there was no real replacement for those mischilins and they were summer only.
The Conti's are replacements for the michilen Pilot Sport and I am thinking about putting them on my carerra S
