The Michelin Pilot Sport A/S will be replaced by the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (PSAS3) which is an AMAZING all-season tire! Here is a quote from the BMW Blog:
"These Michelins are not intended as track tires, though you’d have me fooled through an autocross. To call them all-seasons almost seems disingenuous – they are just too good at everything: it seems to defy the category, which normally is mediocre at everything and good at nothing. In short, these are all-seasons that perform like summer performance tires yet can bring you safely home through light snow and slush."
