I have an M and at about 16k my Pilots were gone(but waited til about 18k to change them). I was contemplating getting the PP's but they were about $500 more and don't last as long(softer but more grip). I decided to go one size larger on both the front and the rear(235, 255). I took y2k's advice and got the 730's because I wasn't racing. I think he went to 245, and 265's in the PP's. To answer your question... I love them. They definitely hug the road alot better than the Pilots but then again they are wider. I can't make them spin as much because the car would rather go than spin. I ordered them from Aaron at tirerack in the early afternoon and got them the next day. I have to say though that the guy who put them on had a hell of a time getting them to seat on the rims. What am I going to do next time?? I will go the 730's again but am thinking about going a size wider to 245 and 265. Chances are I won't though. The thing looks pretty mean already with over a 10 inch thread in the rear. They fit the wheelwell well. I hate when I see a car with wheels sticking out the side.
