I have the Pilot Sport A/S and I really like them.

Handling, Ride, and noise were great.

35k miles and the rears are gone. (staggered setup)

Price and wear are the downside.

Considering Conti DWS next.

Prior to trading it, I put 18,000 miles on a set of Conti DWS tires on my ZSP 2008 128i. The rear tires were about 1/2 worn and fronts had 3/4 tread left. Ride and performance were excellent and the cost for 4 tires mounted was $600.00 with a CCA discount in 2010.

I strongly recommend them, even thought the price has gone up a tad.

I also have the dws, second year in, they are pretty great for a daily driver/all around tire. They are great in the wet, and surprisingly good in light snow. I usually do not take the car out in heavy snow, I would prefer snow tires for that.

They are quiet and comfortable as well. I would get them again on my OEM wheels.
