Just Dunlop or Pirelli or Michelin will not help.

You need to give us model names to help you out.

My choice would be the Bridgestone Potenza RE050 which comes as OEM with the BMWs. These are extremely good tyres.

If you want Michelin, which model in particular are oyu looking at?

PS: I havent bothered to try to convince you to get normal tubeless as you seem to have failed in convincing your dad!

Pirelli P Zero Neros are awesome. If you get it at a similar price, go for it blindly.
