New Tire Suggestions...

I need new tires as the stock runflat Turanzas are one of the early production models and suffer from being terrible... BMW has offered to pay for 2 of the 4 tires for replacement of these 'faulty' tires, however, they cannot guarentee that these replacement tires will not have the same problem... I am currently looking to replace then with a good rubber compound type tire... I have a 2006 330i with 17" rims... does anyone have a suggestion... i am partial to Pirelli, but I am open to anything good!

First, all-season or summer?

Then, rank these, highest priority to lowest:
Price
Treadwear
Noise
Ride Quality
Dry Traction
Wet Traction
Handling

TOYO PROXES T1-R and fill them with Nitrogen not air. Trust me, way smoother, and Nitrogen stay way longer in the tire. air escapes easier
