Tires

2009 Genesis 3.8 performance. My OEM Dunlops lasted 30,000 miles. Pirelliszero near rears lasted only 12,000 miles. has anyone found tires that perform but last better than these Pirellis? I typically drive about 10-15 over posted limit but no laying wheels or screeching stops.
Michelins Pilot AS promise performance and 45000 miles but are really pricey.

The Continental DWS have a 540AA wear rating and are garinteed for 50K miles. I think they are a wonderful tire... They are great in the rain and do very well in the snow. I would give them a 65/100 in the hot summer as far as stickiny goes but for sure nothing the big sedan would over power so I am sure you would love them. They don't hurt the wallet that much either.

Make sure you aren't looking at just the DS though that is a much better performance tire but a lot more money and a much higher tread wear pattern.

Hankook V12 Ventus, if you want summer/performance. 280 treadwear, and great traction, dry and wet (actually, fantastic wet traction, IMO) DWS if you need all-season/3-season, but I'd go Hankooks and a set of winters if you really NEED all seasons, anyways.

+1 on the Ventus V12s although I've heard alot of good things regarding Dunlop Direzza StartSpecs for wear, performance & great all around tires. I personally enjoyed the Nitto NT05s on my 540i for a summer tire that did well in the rain, had very good traction & lasted a fairly long time considering the abuse. However, If you have snow to contend with, I would recommend a dedicated set of winter tires/rims.

I live in Chicago and drove last winter half on Blizzak's and well if you want a winter tire omg yeah... But have sense moved to the 235 front 255 rear setup with the DWS setup and couldn't be happier for a great daily tire that will last a long time. Just saying... I do miss the Nitto 555 and 555R sigh... that was a great tire!

Have any of you had the v12's or DWS? With a treadwear of 540, are they going to be good in the coupe as well?

the v12's have ixed reviews, some only lasted 8k miles. There is a review on tirerack about them. I may be looking for 19'' tires soon and want a relatively good performing tire, but something with a good long life.

Yes I have the DWS on all 4 corners now. They are great, very quiet. I have had them on for about 8k miles so far.
