I just bought a set of 16" cross-spoke wheels to go on my 535i when the Blizzaks come off. I don't want to spend a fortune on tires, so I've come up with a short list. All tires are at least Z-rated. Prices and treadwear/traction/temp ratings are from Tire Rack.

Dunlop SP8000 $105 200 A A
Dunlop SP5000 $95 340 AA A
Dunlop SP4000 $93 300 A A
Yoko AVS S4 $102 300 A A
Yoko AVS Int $118 ??? ? ?
Pirelli P7000SS $121 320 A A

Does anyone have experience with any of these tires? I'm really drawn to the Dunlop SP5000 -- it's cheap, W-rated, and has a long treadlife.

Thanks in advance,
