best all rounder.. Michelin ps4, tons of options though depending on budget, if you want a quieter tyre try dunlop sportsmaxx, best all rounder on a buget.. Vredstein ultrac vorti, just all imho :thumbsup:

Currently have Michelin pilot as 3+ which came on car when purchased. Probably go with Michelin ps4's once new one's are needed.

Again plenty of options. I've got Goodyear asymetric 3s on atm. Done about 25k on them and rates are only just starting to get close to being replacement. Like you, on 17s 290 wheels, never had any complaints with the tires

Be carefull with non run flat tyes, in france for example, insurance companies don't "cover" an accident if your Z4 (E89) don't have run flat tyres.
But i think in UK, is not same rules ?

I agree with people who remove Brigestone run flat tyres (originals) to non run flat :thumbsup:

Ps : Michelin PS4 are very good as you say for E89 ?

I double checked with my insurance company before changing, they weren't bothered at all. That's in the UK
