I bought a 2018 6xiGT with M-Sport last November. I test drove it with standard 20" high performance summers and then I test drove another one with 19" all-seasons. All tires were run-flats.
I felt the 19s were 'slightly' softer but that is purely anecdotal on my part. I also wanted all-seasons for our climate.
The dealer swapped the tires for me before I drove off the lot. No regrets.
I came from a 2012 535xi (non sport) with 18s and Bridgestone Driveguards which were excellent all-seasons.
The 6GT is softer but I like the ride (a lot) and the handling is more affected by the long wheelbase and the 2 axle air suspension.
Overall the car is the best I've ever driven.
