    Thank you for the reply, Ant. I had a feeling you would be the best source to weigh in on tire choice.

    So sad to hear about your deer collision—were you or anyone else in the car injured?

    At least it's a positive that your repair has been going smoothly. We welcome any anecdotal info on that once you're ready.

    Meantime, good luck, and hopefully your loaner is working out well.

    John,

    Thanks for the credit.  Yes the new larger Pirelli Cinturatos have turned out to be a great choice.  I find them quiet and smooth with no noticeable decrease in watts/mile.  All was well until last Saturday's early morning drive to see the leaves, which turned into a deer collision.  Auto braking may see a stopped deer but not one running full out away from hunters.  I will be posting my experience with repair later(good so far).  Ant

    Hi Richard. Great questions.

    If I were you, I would consult fellow member Anthony: https://www.tocnys.org/forum-model-3/9036640#9036640

    He talks about upgrading the size, which may not be your original goal, but is something to consider. He also brings up one often overlooked point: load rating.

    Please let us know what you end up deciding.

    With about 25000 miles on my M3, I am about to make our annual Snowbird journey from Buffalo to Melbourne FL.  My annual NY inspection is due in December but I am doing it two months early since I won't be back in NY until April and it would be overdue. 

    The tires are worn somewhat with one right on the limit to pass or fail, and 3 others marginally better. To be better safe than sorry, though, I'm about to order 4 of the original equipment Continental Extreme Contact Sport 235/40ZR19 96Y XL and eliminate any concern about safety.  

    I am wondering, however, whether anyone else in TOCNYS has had experience with other makes and may or may not have advice.  Michelin, Pirelli, Bridgestone, Dunlop, Yokohama and Goodyear all make "equivalent" tires.  Prices are generally comparable or more expensive than the Continentals, but I'm more concerned about quality and performance than saving $0.005 per mile over the next couple of years.       

    Any recommendations or warnings?
