Hard compound Tires?

Hey guys, in the market for some tires,

I got the DSII's staggered but im thinking of just putting a square set-up...

I drive ALOT like 40,000km a year atleast, so im looking for a tire that will last me all year (not including winter)

But i still want decent traction, especially in wet weather, already hydroplaned once, and hoping that i will never have to go thru it again.

Open to all recommendations!

You're looking for a touring tire.

Here are some options:
Pirelli P4
Dunlop Signature
Yokohama Avid TRZ
Yokhama Avid Touring S
Michelin Harmony
Hankook H724

But considering it's BMW, the dunlop signature is probably the only one in a H-rated compound, where most are only T or S rated..

Another good choice is the Yokohama Avid Envigor, which is a good balance between performance and long life.

Check your PM.
