E70 X5M tires

What tires are you guys running on?

MyBridgestone's are in need of replacement in the spring however there doesn't appear to be very many options in our size.

Lots of views but no comments

I have decided to go with Michelin PSS

The front will have to be 285/35/20 (that's the closest size they make)
The rears will be 315/35/20

I know the fronts are a smaller tire by 0.81" however I think I will be ok.

I love PSS and will be looking forward to running on these this summer

I have them on all my other cars and love them! I cannot imagine my experience will be any less.Having said that you will have to wait until April for feedback (still way to cold here ) for summer rubber.

I have Nitto Motivo's on mine. No complaints. Conti DWS is a little better tire though.

If you like the Michelin PSS, check out the Vredestein Ultrac Vorti.

Just dropping an update in here. It turns out PSS still aren't available for our M's The fronts are the issue.

I decided to go with Falken FK453CC. It's a very simular tread design to the PSS. I'm getting them mounted this week.

I will post feedback once I have had them for a bit.

How are the Falken tires? I thought of these through Discount Tire but am leaning more towards the Conti DWS.

I'm very happy with the Falken's. Low to no road noise and excellent grip. I cannot speak to how well they handle in the rain due to the fact we haven't had any since I've had them installed.

As a bonus the price of these tires is excellent.
