Errr I'd say that chart shows the exact opposite, all the premium tyres are A rated in the wet where as most of the mid range tyres are C. Sounds like they are worth the extra just on their wet weather performance to me!

Also I've not used Falkens on the BMW but I have on other cars and found that they last about half as long as a premium tyre like Conti's so a bit of a false economy.

I'm not really sure why people are prepared to compromise on tyre choice for the sake of a couple of hundred quid tbh.
