I havea 36K mile lease and even though I also use winter tires, the RFs will not last until the end of the lease, so I would rather drive on my prefered summer non RF tire now and give them back their OEM tires rather than having to buy new Run Flats (which run about $400 more per set).
Wait, you don't think the RF's on the car will go 36k miles if you are running snow tires for ~4 months of the year? Assuming equal driving miles/mnth that's only 24k miles on the tires.
Even though they're RF's, they've got to be nice ones? I'd just try and trade them with someone else and at least get *something*. This seems like another reason why leasing isn't great.
