+1 for the Michelin Primacy MXM4s: quiet, comfortable and all seasons.

Can someone clarify the sizes they are having mounted on to a F-Sport RWD with the MXM4's? Are you guys running the same size all around or staggered? Really interested to know what size you guys placing on the rear.

I know 245/40R19 size has been thrown out the alot on all for corners but it that only for AWD? Or will this set up work for RWD?

Default +1 Contis

+1 Conti DWS very quiet, comfortable ride, all season tire, great tread life (I've got over 25K and still 50% tread life) BUT not so crisp and sharp for extreme handling.

So I am thinking of going this route: Rears are Michelin Pilot AS3 Y98 275/35R19 and Michelin MXM4 up front 245/40R19. Is there a better combo for RWD F-Sport? -is this recommended?

I would never run a different model tire tire in the rear than in the front.

Makes sense. So does anyone have MVM4 tires on all four corners of their RWD F-sport?

Hankook Tires worked a deal with BMW & Mercedes Benz to be their original equipment tire brand.

Sounds good. But are the tires REALLY any good? I have seen them around a while, but have heard no one really chat them up. Does the partnership really make them a player?
