Actually they're not even close imo.

I ordered my F30 335i without RFTs (I had 4 BMWs with RFTs before and I sometimes switched them because of the noise/harsh ride) but my salesperson told me this is the last generation Bridgestone S001 RFT(19 inch) no worries blabla.

IF I'm not going to order a F20/21(kids) M135i 8AT , I'm going to switch to Pilot Supersports this spring. The S001s are rather sporty and precise, but still harsh and NOISY as hell! Within a few weeks I put Conti (RFT...) wintertyres on , I guess they will be a tad less noisy.

That's why I want to ask M135i drivers: How is the ride/noise?
I'm planning to drive one nov. 28th...

The non RF Michelin SuperSport is the best tyre atm. It suits the 135 very well. I just order the small pump with the non rf package and that's it.

Cheers

Hi Robin, Thanks for your feedback. My only experience with RF were from a 2011 550i GT, pretty bad car to start with, and made worse by the standard 19" RF tires. Had it for 1 year, first time ever that I would rather NOT take the scenic route and just go straight (literally) home. From the comments before, I thought the RF on a M135i achieved the same qualities as my other cars with same tires but non-RF. I can't make direct comparisons until I'm finished with my current set of michelins & put a set of PZeros RF on, until then, would be happy to get feedbacks from people with both brands, on a M135i.
