ADVICE NEEDED - MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup on 325 e91 for everyday use??

Hi guys,

I need some advice, I am thinking of buying Michelin Pilot Sport Cups for my 325 msport e91. Are they any good for an everyday use?

Great tyres but overkill i reckon, unless your name is Hamilton or Button?
And they aren't great for typical UK weather either...

Haha, nah, that's not me ;-)

I am asking because I can get a brand new set for 500 quid
I have heard that they can be dangerous in wet, is that true?

Nearly bought some for my D3 as there is an eBay retailer that has a great deal on these at the moment.

They are hopeless in the wet though, if we have a summer like last year they'll be next to useless on the motorway.

I went for the PSS's instead

Yep, i'd say PSS or GY Asym 2 is a much better bet for UK road use
