[split] What is the best Runflat tyre to fit on F30
What tyres are you guys running?

What mileage can one expect on a set of RF tyres?

It would depend on how you drive the car. Bridgestone are good all rounders.

I had Bridgestone Potenza RFTs 245/40 18s on my TT Mk2.
They lasted 58,000km.
However:
- this is with rotation every 10,000km (same tyre size back to front)
- the remaining tread was around 2.5 mm
- the car only had 250Nm torque on the front wheels

If you have heavy torque and an M-Sport tyre set up (so cannot perform rotation), then results would vary.

10K rotation is not negotiable for me.

I am in the process of doing a deal on base spec 320d which needs new tyres, so am rather curious.

Thankfully my driving style is rather sedate!

You can only rotate on non M Sport. M sport has bigger tyres at the back

Not all though. Style 162, for example, is narrow/wide and non M sport

The ones I had on my car:

Part number: b36122293689 = Continental SportContact 5 SSR

They lasted 55,000km.
This is with rotation every 10,000km & wheel alignment.
Made sure the tyre pressure was correct at the end of each month.

I’ve used the 18” Pirelli PZero runflats on my E92 and they gave me good comfort and handling got about 40k km on the set. Currently on my second set of 19” Goodyear F1 Asymmetrical 2 on my F30 and can’t complain. Good comfort, good handling in wet and dry weather, I get about 35k-40k km on a set. Bit pricey but overall I personally feel it’s a good tyre.

Current:
2015 BMW 320i F30 MSport Alpine White

Previous:
2009 BMW 325i E92 Msport Le Mans Blue
2005 Audi A3 2.0 Fsi Sportsback Blue
2003 Mercedes Benz C230k Coupe Burnt Orange
