any experience with Firestone Indy 500 or General G-Max RS???

Haven't found much on here about either of these tires.

I have a 330ci with the staggered 18" setup. My rear tires are completely shot and I'm mulling my options. I was thinking a good set of all-seasons until recently when I went out and bought a 4wd Jeep, so I'll drive that when it's snowy/icy in the winter. I still have a full spare set of wheels from when I bought the car, the winter set with Blizzaks that ran out last winter and were downright excellent (and expensive) tires - now those wheels are sitting unused in my garage.

So I'm thinking of going back to high-performance summer tires. The two that have caught my eye are the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 and the General G-Max RS. Both tires get very high marks in every review I've seen, and the G-Max won a Tire Rack 2018 comparison test. They're also both a fraction of the cost of some most other UHP tires and really look the part to boot. I can get a full set of either one from Tire Rack for $500-$525.

Does anyone have experience with either of these tires?
Iím also intrigued by the 360 treadwear rating of the G-Max. Although the BFG g-force sport comp-2 is rated at 340 and I wasnít real impressed with their longevity when I ran those.

Thanks in advance!
