F10 BMW M5 Spied testing around the ring (4/19/2010). Can anyone identify the tires?

Here are the latest spy shots of the upcoming BMW M5, these photos are hot off the press, taken today! Pirelli and BMW are testing different tire combinations for this car, for which the final setup will be of paramount importance. As always, you can find our complete M5 Spyshots collection here.

Can anyone identify the different tire combinations?

They look like Pirelli Sottozero Serie II winter tires. http://www.us.pirelli.com/web/catalo...pe=CAR-SUV-VAN

Alright, I think I figured it out. The tires on the car on the lift are Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D RunOnFlat and tires on the car driving are Pirelli Winter 240 Sottozero Serie II RFT.

The tire on the car in the first photo (on the jack) looks like Dunlop Winter Sport 3D.

IMHO, I still think those long overhangs kill the sporty look of the new car...this is nowhere near as sporty looking as the e39 and e60.

I like the early test mule wheels a LOT more. And those tires don't seem that wide.

why are they even testing winter tires? Thats our job, lol.

The car won't be sold with winter tires, so unless theyre doing this to figure out which winter tire package to sell through the stealerships...?

By the way thats the most exposed hood pics we have seen thus far.
