The ride is very nice. I got the non-run flat Blizzaks. I have found that highway driving with these tires is a bit wierd if your trying to downshift and pass somebody. Several times if I'm driving between 70-80mph in 6 gear, and down shift to 4 to accelerate pass somebody quickly, the traction control activates. This causing a reduction in power causing you to go NOWWHERE! You have to be in sport +, if you wanna down shift and accelerate hard past another car. I had the Blizzaks on my 2009 Mini S and the traction control never activated when doing the same. My theory, which means nothing is the soft rubber compound that Bridgestone uses with these tires and the tourqe causing what the car believes is wheel spin. These are great tires though in the snow, and since the forecast here in Syracuse is sunny for the next week, I put the summers back on a few hours ago...haha
M5 with lots of goodies
