+1 looking to swap tires this summer. I still have plenty of tread on my PSS's but was looking to pick up either R888R or PS4s for the rear.

Ordered from TireRack last week for 2016 Comp 20". Delivery mid May. Can't wait! I'm done with the "POS" Zeros! No tread and no traction...

Ordered as well a couple of weeks ago. Received email the other day stating mid May. Wanted to have these waiting when I need them as they will most definitely be seriously back ordered.

I have Pilot Sport 4S. Excellent tire. Similar to PSS but more grip.

A place I buy my tires from just got a shipment and luckily enough had the size I was looking for on my M5, and were giving me an absolutely crazy deal, will have them installed on Thursday, and I will post a review after driving as time progresses on.

Hopefully they will live up the the hype their given, if it can beat the PSS for what I need, then I would be very surprised...

I have a 16 F10 M5 CP with 630 HP to the wheels, and I'm on the Pirellis that the car came with from factory :

The same here as NickBoz. have a 16 M5 Competition with the factory Pirelli's. Also have ordered the Ps4s that will be mounted Friday.

I have had the PSS on my 2013 M5 and they were so much better than the Zero's

Can't wait !

Just ordered a set, these things are really selling quick. Local dealer said some sizes are already back order (Canada).

Fronts were in stock, rears arriving in a couple of weeks. I went 275 front and 305 rear. I'll post impressions in a few weeks

Vredesteins are another very good option IMO; doesn't get much love on here but a very good tire and available in 21" fitments as well. I've run P's, MPSS, Conti's, R888's and believe the Vreds are the best all around tire. I have not tried the new MPS 4S.

One of my friends who has used the Toyo R888Rs extensively said they are great track tires but they will not hold up well on the street. You need to heat them up significantly before you can attain their benefits, which is not necessarily feasible unless you spend a majority of your time on the track. Other issues are that they are extremely loud and can brick out. Basically, the tires harden and turn to crap despite the fact that they have plenty of tread left. I too was looking for tires and he said a street performance tire such as the Michelin PS4s would be a great option.

No spacers. I am running aftermarket rims that are a half inch wider and slightly tweeked offsets.

I have run 305 rears on stock rims no problem, this will be my first time with the 275 up front. But I think others here have run a 275 on a stock rim.

Why the cup2's instead of the 4s's if you don't mind me asking?? Looking to pick up a set for the rear wheels in 305 that will actually stick and put power down.

Zero traction now with the 295 PSS, I don't think the 4S will be the improvement I am looking for. That, and I have Pure Stage 2 turbos sitting here soon to go on the car.

AWD is your solution.
