Strange experience - Bridgestone Turanza on 2020 540i

These tires feel very strange, maybe the car is new and there is slight overinflation on the fronts.

Had Michelin Primacy 3 ZP on F10 that I just returned, those RFTs used to make the car glide, slightly better than the original stock Michelin Primacy HP ZP (Stock) that got discontinued.

I don't want to give up RFTs due to safety reasons at high speed tire failure/nail.

[True personal story : Had a wheel lock go through one of my tires in the past on a relative's F30 and no harm done to life or property]

I have to check the specific model number, though Bridgestone seems to always make crap tires it seems. These don't feel that grippy even on dry roads and seem to jump or stutter.

1 week old - gentle 200 miles on the car.

Don't know if they are made in that size, but I'm running Michelin PS3ZPs on my M550, and I love them. Grippy, stable, and quiet.

A 540i MSport with staggered 19" and they installed grand touring tires from factory? Seems wrong to me. Does your car have the MSport suspension?
