I am in need of replacement tires for my 2001 740i Sport. The current are Bridgestone Potenza S-03 Pole positions, which I am quite happy with, but are considered max performance summer tires. I am considering putting some performance all-season tires on instead (a slight compromise in performance). Given that I am not doing any slalom in the car (it's a 740) I think the summer tires are likely overkill anyway and I can still get awesome Y-rated all season tires, like the Pirelli PZero Nero M&S or the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S. Any comments? The Pirellis are significantly less, but seem to be on par performance wise. Any facts, opinions and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I run Dunlop Sport A2 on my 1988 750, I also do not AutoX but these are great in the wet and have very low noise level at speed, no idea on how long they will last, but the price was right.
