No one needs high performance or a sporty feel, but I'm spoiled. When I drive 328i loaners or other cars that have all-season tires, they feel hard and uncommunicative compared to the best summer tires. I prefer Michelin PS2 and PSS summer tires because they feel more comfortable, more precise, and more fun, even driving slow.
