    I've heard various stories about run flat tyres and people saying they hate them. I've noticed that mine has these and I'm wondering what people find wrong with them. Thanks

    Hi, I purchased an E90 not so long ago and I'm wondering whether it's possible to just replace my run flat tyres with standard tyres, without having to code anything? If so, will my sensors still work?

    Had anyone had any experience with these tyres? I’m due new tyres and I’m seeing the reviews are pretty good for them. My current tyres have lasted about 25k miles so don’t want to buy the falkens and they are done after 15k? Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hi all, New to the group and after some advice. I have recently bought a 2010 635D that is fitted with run flat tyres, I absolutely love this car but the ride is firm and the handling is not brilliant. I am thinking this maybe due to the run flats but before I commit to removing them has...

    Hi, I’ve just discovered I’ve got two bulges on my 218d’s runflat tyres. They’re both on the same side. I’ve previously also had tyre pressure warnings come up in my car with no concerning tyre pressure readings once I’ve taken it down to fill them up with air - which I had previously put down...

    I’ve bought a new 640d Gran Coupe with the M-Sport plus package so it comes with the 20 inch alloys and the standard run flat tyres. It’s non VDC. Unfortunately I haven’t had a chance to test drive it. Is the ride really as bad as everyone says? I test drove the same car but with VDC and the...

    Hi all, Just bought a set of MV2 alloys and given them a quick (DIY!!) refurb. Getting ready to put them on the car in the next couple of months after the tyres on the current factory wheels need changing. Just wondering, will runflats be ok to put on the older wheels? I've heard that they...

    I have decided to change from run flats to non run flats. It is currently on Pirelli p zeros which have been good but don't last long. Any one got suggestions of a tyre to change too that they have had good experience with. I drive swift and would like something with reasonable wear and quiet...

    It's time to replace my tyres on my E61 530d and I'm considering not using runflats. Mostly because of the additional costs but partly for the comfort. If I decide not to go with runflats I would get a can of temporary tyre fix stuff as I have no spare. What do you think?

    "The run flats on your car are what the car was designed to run on. Yes, a lot of people swap them over and we have done that for some customers. However, whilst yours might go though a corner at 60, others who change could end up in a ditch in the same corner. The non run flats are softer and...

    Hi I have a 2010 e91 320d m-sport with 17" wheels. It's currently on Bridgestone run flats and I am happy with them. (i suspect the taller tyre on the 17" wheel softens the ride). Anyway, I need to replace the rear 255/40/17s and have been considering Hankook. Does anyone have any experience of...

    Hello All, Recenly got rid of my run fat tyres, the car feels softer through the corners, I wonder is this due to the fact that the tyres are not rock hard like run flats or am I under inflating them? The book says to have 2.2 bar front (32 psi) and 2.3 (34 psi) rear. Should I stick with this...

    I need 4 new tyres, at the moment I have 225/45/17 on the front and 255/40/17 on the back all runflats. If I decide to get normal tyres is it a straight swap or will it need something else done to fit normal tyres. Thanks.

    As above and true to my words of many previous posts, I have finally ditched the run flats. Despite still having 4mm on each of the Dunlop Sport Maxx's currently on the car (I think I will eBay them as similar sets are going for serious money from what I've seen), I decided to treat myself and...
