Quieter tires? And all seasons? Recommendations?

Anyone running all seasons on their Mís? I have a LCI m2 and getting annoyed of the MIchelin tires that came with the car. Too loud. And no traction for rain. I donít push the car. So i donít need it for performance


Any suggestions

I always check https://www.tirerack.com to select tires.

They show the following NOISE rating for Ultra High Performance All-Season tires for the M2:
Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (W or Y Speed rated) - 8.6
Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06 - 8.4

My Continentals became extremely noisy at 10,000 miles and I just replaced them on Thursday with 4Ss.
(I don't use the M2 during the 3 months of winter)
Max Performance Summer
Michelin Pilot Sport 4S - 8.9
Michelin Pilot Super Sport - 8.7
Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 - 8.5

I ran the DWS 06 on my MINI JCW for winter. Great all season tire, but definitely doesn’t have as good dry grip as the Michelin PSS or 4S.

I'm very happy with my Continentsal Extreme Contact Sports. They're very quiet. I had Michelin A/S3+ before that and hated them. Very loud on the highway on my M235i.

Hmm. My A/S 3+ on my M235i were quite quiet. So far my Contis on my M2 are all right. But they have only been on for four months.
