Matter of tyres M5 vs E63

E63s vs M5 is very close. If Carwow's M5 is and E63 had similar tyres the outcome of the race has been in favour for M5.

The E63 also comes with Michelin's new Pilot Sport 4 S tire, which provides great traction. Carwow's M5 is running on Pirelli P Zeroes.

I don't think the Pirelli is as bad as the internet rep. My X5M has Pirelli and they work very well. If we were comparing Firestone to Michelin, that's one thing....Pirelli has won Championships. Probably an 8 tire vs a 9 tire....not a 3 tire vs a 9 tire....

Yes i agree .... but had some pzero 20 inch on my last car, i doesn't like many aspect of this tyre compared to michelin.

Pirelli probably good for a mclaren or lambo or ferrari, but for a sedan, i prefer michelin.

Cornering, durability, wet traction....

But it's my own opinion.
