Can't believe what tyres BMW put on my 650i GC!!!!

I checked out my 650i GranCoupe at BMW pending licensing in Hong Kong. And I can't believe what tyres they put on the car! Primacy HP. Is BMW crazy?

What tyres did your 6 series come with? I understand that the tyres are not the same for different batches of productions. But I would have expected something decent like RE050A/ PS2/CSC 5P.... etc But to see the Primacy HP on the car

It depends on the wheel, the stock 19 inch wheels come with primacy HP. The individual and msport wheels come with Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT DSST

Maybe your dealer can switch them out for the dunlop.

The BMW dealer her would not do anything for me, because they are the only dealer in Hong Kong

Bmw mentions it in their catalog and on the website but in very small print. The default 19 inch wheels come with all season tires in 245/45 all the way around and pretty much all the other 19 or 20 inch wheels come with summer performance tires in a 245/35 and 275/30.

The only reason I know this is because I was planning on switching out wheels and tires when I got the car.

Not all michelins are created equal

Color: Ruby Black Haven't see any real pictures posted here on the 6GC with ruby black yet. Maybe you all think the color is ugly

But having seen the car in person, I think the color is perfect for city

I ordered at launch so waited 5 months. I still have my trusted 20" PSS but the primacy hps are just an annoyance to me. I don't think the M Performance exhaust is available for the 650i GC yet.....

And finally, picking up the car today Turns out I am the first to take possession of the 650i GC in Hong Kong
