I prefer 19s on my M2 bc I can get more rubber under the car in the tires I want to run. I’ve tried R888R and Trofeo R, neither have the grip of the 71R, cost more, similar longevity, and aren’t as versatile.

The 71R can be run in light rain & cold weather and still has tons of grip; you can also easily arrive & drive on 71R’s. The Trofeo is pretty comfortable as a street tire, tho.

As long as you keep your pressures below 35psi and don’t overdrive/slide them, you’ll get at least 8-days out of 71R’s. And, I’m not a slow driver (2:13 on only my 3rd day at WGI, 265/35/18 square 71R’s), you just need to treat the tire right.

I currently run 265/35 & 305/30/19 RE-71R’s, and it’s the best all around setup I’ve tried.
