All Season Non RTF recommendations

Anybody have any recommendations for All Season, Non-RTF tires? I do not plan on tracking my E90. Just need a good all season tire.
Thanks.

Michelin PS2 A/S+ -- great tires! Or check out the Conti DW"s. Either would be a good choice.

Conti DWS. Do some research, it's a VERY good tire.

I just put on the Conti DWS. Amazing tire. Very happy with it. Quiet, smooth, handling is ok for an AS tire. The fact that they are backordered in many sizes is a good indication. I'm sure the sales are due to all the rave reviews since they went on the market.

A full set of 17" Conti DWS for my 128i cost $600 including mounting & balancing.

Compared to the original summer touring Goodyear RFTs, the ride is greatly improved, handling is almost as good and after 10,000 miles, it looks like the rears will last a total of 40,000 and the fronts about 70,000 miles.

The only downside is a slightly softer feel when cornering which can be partially corrected by increasing the pressures about 3 psi over stock.

Hunter Road Force Balance is the only way to go after mounting.

If you're not doing performance driving, the Pilot Exalto A/S is very good.
