I have replaced my 1997 E39 528 with six Goodyears F1...burst one in the first three hours on normal road use ( was sliced by a flat sharp debris dropped from a truck !!? ) ... burst the second the next day... excessive pressure ??? No warranty... fortunately, no major drama, car was stable at speed about 140km/h.
I have tried Michelins, burn rubber much too fast. It takes about 14,000km before they are smooth as donuts :)) Replaced rear twice before convert to Dunlop SP.
The other car is using Goodrich tires.. so far so good.
Any experience to share ??
