Good point! I had to put four new tires on in the fall - Michelin LTX M/S2. They were almost $1400 installed (with an aligment). Pretty good T rating on them at 118 MPH. Still nowhere near the tires I had on my old sport sedan!

Frankly, if you want to go over 100mph you might have done better to put that $1400 towards an old BMW sport sedan. While likely exhausted at this point, at least it was initially designed to hit those speeds.
Buying a 2007 BMW 750iL (what are they now, about $40,000 used?) and expecting it to tow your 8,000 lb boat, haul firewood through the woods, or carry 8 people in its 5 seats would be no less ridiculous than pushing your Expy faster.
I like speed as much as the next guy, but you need a different set of car keys.
