Anyone have Goodyear Efficient Grip RFTs (RunOnFlat)?

Anyone have Goodyear Efficient Grip RFTs (RunOnFlat)?

I wanted to know if others like their Goodyear Efficient Grip RFT types that came with their car.... Now supposedly, according to TireRack.com, they are High Performance (summery) tires....but I can't get over how they seem to drift at speed & dart odd directions upon deflection (such as hitting a pothole). Now they seem too corner ok, but I am afraid they will give out without notice, add I cannot seem to feel or hear them squeal... They just lose traction with less warning then I am used to with conventional toes

I have that tire as OEM on my 335i.
all i can say is the worse tire ever. it so bumpy & actually jump on uneven surface & even worse on potholes.
but soon to be replace with 20" + Conti tires.

I had them and they were unforgivably bad. Replaced them for actual performance tires (non rft) and have been quite pleased since. Ditch them ASAP if you care at all about grip and performance (to include braking).

The Goodyear's came as OEM on my 328i. They seem 'meh' to me. I'm not going to throw them away, so I'll use them until they wear out. (Shouldn't be too long, OEM tires suck) I'll swap them out for NonRFTs at that point.
