Stuck between 2 tires for my DD, help

Ok guys, need some input on which tires to get for my DD. I'm going to have a local shop install them on a force balancer so that is not an issue and same for both. $100/set.

A- Goodyear Fuel Max. $654.56 to the door. $40 mail in rebate. = $614.56. 65,000 mile tread warranty. 580 A A.

B- Dunlop signature II's. $578.56 to the door. No rebates = $578.56. 65,000 mile tread warranty. 580 A A.

Opinions??

Neither. If you want a budget tire, get V12s. Or Conti DWs.

And don't look at the thread mile warranty... it's meaningless.

but if you're set on these 2 tires.... I don't think a $36 difference is worth giving it any more though

why are you buying economy tires anyways? seems like you have a lot of performance mods, and those tires will not help
if you care about fuel economy, i'm wondering why you chose a 335 in the first place

now, i'm not saying it's bad to want to save money on tires, i'm asking why you're not getting performance tires for cheap like the hankook v12s

LOL. Exactly the dunlops. They are 1# lighter than the goodyears too. My factory Michelin's are 25# ea and the Goodyears are 22#, the Dunlops are 21#. Stock Michelins are almost $200/ea. No way am I spending that kind of money for a mom & pop tire. That's more than I paid for my 335i DWS's. They're decent, but not that good.... my DWS's are better, quiter and do better in the rain and cost almost half as much. What's the deal with Michelins being so dang expensive. They seem to be the darling tire brand that every review loves. I don't see it. I know thier pilot tires are supposed to be really good, but other than that I think it's hype.
