Absolutely John but no need for Nick to be so tight with his tyres.
Lol certainly not tight with tyres, I replaced rear tyres that still had 4 Ml on them just because my OCD wouldn't let me just replace the front 2 (that were just below 3) but can’t accept tyres that cost me in excess of £1200 that have potentially lost 2Ml after 1200 miles as at that rate I will be changing them again in another 2000 miles :(:eek:

as for going steady, well it all depends what you class as steady , these things make most speeds seem steady ;)

Will have a star after the tyre size Nick, but doublecheck, because the tyre size is written twice on the tyre wall, but only one tyre size has the star after it :thumbsup:

I checked my Pirelli's after BMW said they were 7mm, they were not, 8mm all round.
I would check you got the "star Michelin's" if not they may wear quicker, just a thought.

just checked tyres and can see star but not after tyre size, can also only see tyre size written once on the wall of the tyre, what you reckon guys ?:thumbsup:

got a good outcome on this, Sent complaint via BMW to Michelan who have agreed tyre wear seems to be in excess of what would be deemed to be normal so are replacing all with new, nice to see some common sense being used
