Exactly what they told me.

Call Michelin USA (spare yourself the international ld charges unless
you speak French) directly and tell them you have Pilot's as OEM (very
important) on your M3. Demand that you get an emergency release from
them. They should give you a person's name and reference number (ya
know, per Beavis of Michelin or something). Now, call Tire Rack (or
wherever you prefer) and give them all the emergency release info.
That's not the end of the story tho, keep pestering them until they give
you a tracking number (as in, the tire is actually on its way to you).
97 M3 black/black, with brand new Pilot rears.
