I have been running Michelin Pilot Sport 3 in the summer, and Michelin X-Ice 3 in the winter. Very pleased with both. Michelin Pilot Supersport are probably even better.

as tire-seller i'd recommend :

michelin ps3 indeed. supersport slightly better but wears off more quick
continental sport contact 5. (only downside for me, is that they start new with 6mm depth)

Were you not given the option to specify non-RFT's when you ordered the car?

Unless of course it's a used buy.

In Norway it was not possible to order the car without run-flats. My dealer had to arrange it through unofficial channels.

I recommend running the same wheel and tyre size in all four corners. It makes the car very well balanced.

I would have thought the non runflats would be the better option in colder climates yet you don't get the choice, tsk tsk BMW.

I'm hoping to get rid of the 245/35 rears on mine and fit 225/40 to match the fronts when I need new rubber. Need to find out if the rims are all the same width, rear must be 8.5" to take that tyre, hoping the fronts aren't 8".
