Any M3 owners with stock 18's switch from Continental Contisport Contacts to Michelin Sports or Bridgestone Potenza S03's and experience better tread life? Mine are almost gone at 8300 miles.

Any help is appreciated.

the SO-3's are kinda heavy and can be hard to get but they are really good tires. :thumbup:

How many miles have you put on the tires and how is the tread life so far?

S03 Good on dry, but on wet road :thumbdwn:
Experienced last week on the way to Vegas. No traction over 80mhp. Nightmare getting passed by hugea$$ SUVs.
