    My 2005 4.4i has the sport package with the optional staggard 19" wheels. It has brand new Michelin Damaris tires on it as part of the CPO certification process. I have only had the vehicle for two weeks and already other owners are telling me these will wear out quickly. Since it only has 31k miles on it, and a new set of tires, I can only guess these will not last anywhere past that many miles.
    Without starting a tire war here, can anyone, with this same setup, provide any insight on other tire choices they have had good luck with. Having staggard wheels on my M5, I know rotation from side to side and on the rim will help extend the life of the set. The Damaris is a non-directional tire, so it can be swapped side to side without dismounting like I have to do with my PS-2's to extend the life for track use.
    Basically, tire suggestions is what I am looking for. I will be doing NO towing. Thanks in advance.
