Is this a good price for Michelin PSS?

Through my local Costco, I can get fully fitted Michelin PSS for my 640d for the following prices

Front - 225.46 per tyre
Rear - 252.58 per tyre.

Is that a good price? I've seen varying prices online but I've never used somewhere that delivers tyres to a fitter who then fit them, I've always gone for supply and fit. That is obviously more expensive but I need to know who to use if going to separate supply and fitters.

Thanks

Good price saving by about a fiver (using Tyreleader/Camskill and knowing someone who can mount them), if using someone like Event tyres the best I can do is 235.

Although watch it I have heard of problems with Costco causing damage to wheels during removal and mounting of tyres.

Regarding the 4S there appears no current sizes available, it is that new.

I've found the 4S on multiple sites, black circles have it for 294 for rears and 232 for fronts

I used the online Tyreleader back in April and paid 788.84 for all 4 MPSS delivered all the way from Germany. That is 177.58 per tyre for the front and 216.84 per tyre for the rear. I found someone locally to fit them and dispose of the old tyres for 48.

I recently had a front puncture in the sidewall when I hit a pothole and had to make an emergency purchase from the local HiQ which cost me 235.95. So the Costco prices are OK but you can get them much cheaper and it is worth doing if you are buying a set of 4.

I have PS4S going on on Friday, but they can only get MO fitment for the front, non MO are not available from Michelin until March apparently. So you have 2 sets?

No that's ok, I spoke to Michelin today about this. They said that their recommendation is not to fit OEM vs non marked on the same car, but they said that's from a performance standpoint, you might not get the 100% best out of them but would probably have to be driving on the limit to notice. The only thing that concerned me is that the non marked are rated C for rolling resistance whereas the MO are marked as E, and the non marked are rated A for wet grip but the MO are marked as B. I hopefully won't notice much difference.

Shame otherwise I would have asked if you wanted to sell them!

silly question, but how can you tell if they are MO or not? Is it printed on the tyre or just on the paperwork?

Ok, as long as it says MO, and not MERCEDES in big letters, It'll be fine! Don't want my Beemer wearing Merc shoes!

Will be good to hear what your views are on the ride after you ditch the run flats. Iv been finding the ride comfort some what disappointing if I'm honest.

I haven't found it to be as bad as I was expecting, certainly better than the F10 on RFTs, but it's definitely hard over the potholes and tramlines a bit, to be expected. I hope it will be a good improvement. To be honest I'm looking forward to reducing the wheelspin a bit in mot of the low gears!

People say its a night an day difference so we'll see.

It certainly was when I had my F30.
Never went back to runflats.

I have only done just over 5k since I got the F06, so i got a fair bit of mileage to do before I can justify taking the Dunlops off.

I reckon they will be ready to go on around the end of spring / start of summer this year.

To be honest with you though I have been trying hard to wear them out just so I can get the Michelin's slapped on as quickly as possible!

I know what you mean, I've still got a fair bit of tread left but the tyres are oval shaped at the rear apparently, hence my vibration. But I think the next few days calls for a bit of "enthusiastic" driving
