    Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    So i have a 335D Xdrive on the factory P Zero's i find it a little skittish driving on practically solid rubber. My last F30 had 19inch run flats but the 20's make your eyes bleed on price as i can only seem to find the PZeros as a run flat option. So im thinking of ditching the runflats and...

This morning I found that one of...

    Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    Ok so I'm a glass half full kinda guy and RFTs generally get a bad press but is this a hang over of the early days of RFTs? I'd like to stick with RFTs so as not to have to make additional provision in case of a puncture and in my mind the E90 range was designed specifically to run on RFTs so...
