Just got rid of my run flats...

I have to say that I'm amazed at how much better the car rides and handles. I should have swapped them out when I purchased the car. I also have to say that I won't miss the noise either as they are much quieter as well.

Thanks for sharing, I'm glad to hear you're happy with the results. What tires did you get?

I bought mine at the Tire Rack back in August. No one had them locally for my 19" rims either. I ran the Conti RFT's down to the wear bars. Had it to be done over again, I would have installed them in August when they arrived.

Best thing I ever did and I went to 20 inch wheels and Coilovers and the car is more comfortable than with the Bridgestone RFT
