summer tire recommendation for e90 335xi sedan

Hi, I have a 2007 E90 335xi sedan and need new summer tires.
My current summer tires are Eagle F1 245/40 R18 non-staggered, non-RFT. I have separate winter tires & rims so these new tires will be strictly for summer driving.

I've been happy with these but am open to changing to something else.
My priorities for tire selection are (in this order):
1. ride comfort & quiet (in addition to non-RFT)
2. road grip in rain
3. looks (thin profile)
4. performance
Any recommendations ?
TIA

Michelin pilot super sport. Best all around tire. Great grip as well.

Conti Extreme contact DW's. Pretty happy with them, haven't really tried many other options so take my opinion for what it is worth.

+1. I am very happy with the DW.

Some of my friends running the Michelin Super sports report that they are amazing, however thread life is very low.

Anyone have experience with Bridgestone RE 760 ?
They sell for about $215/tire (including rebate) in Toronto.

Other than these, based on my internet research, it seems you can't go wrong with either the Michelin Super Sport (about $281/tire including rebate) or Continental Extreme Contact DW (about $255/tire).
Prices include install+balance but not taxes at Steelcase Tires.

Try Tires23, you want to speak to Billy. Let him know that Ibrahim with the blue 335 sent you. His pricing is very competitive.

I just switched from the stock Bridgestone RFT's to Michelin Super Sports and am very pleased with them.

+1 on the Continental ExtremeContact DW. It is by far one of the best summer tire for comfort and noise. Excellent in the wet and rain, better or at par with the Michelin Pilot Super Sport. For looks as long as you get the right size should be no differen than any other tire. Performance is subjective, the DW should satisfy MOST daily drivers, but keep in mind if you have a side by side comparison with the Michelin PSS, it will not feel as direct and precise. The DW should last just a tad bit longer than the PSS.

For the price as well, the DW is a bargain as it offers most people more than enough dry performance, excellent and one of the best in class wet and rain performance, ride comfort, and longevity!

Good Luck!

I decided on the Continental ExtremeContact DWs. I couldn't be happier with the noise (very little) and comfort (fantastic) compared to the Eagle F1s I had before.
They aren't as cheap in Canada (I bought at Steelcase) as Tirerack is in the US but once you factor in shipping & duty it wasn't worth it to me to save $100 and I'm supporting the local economy and will get great after purchase service.
Thanks for everyone's comments on this matter - much appreciated !

Michelin PSS's on my wife's car. She loves them.

I'll go to the PSS's too, once I burn on two sets of PS2's and one set of PSCup's.

I run PSS myself, but I see quite a few people run Nitto Invo's on 18's and 19s, and they are pretty cheap, so hows the quality and performance of them?
