335i tire wear OEM RF Performance

now that this car has been out a while, what are you guys seeing as far as tire wear on OEM Performance tires (18" or 19")?

any chance these will last 20K miles?

debating if I should buy a set of non run flats to replace my OEM and put the OEM RF back on before I turn in my lease. I say 20K because I will have my winter set on for around 15K miles of the lease...

If I can manage to use the Run Flats without needing to be replaced at lease turn in that would save me $1100 or so.

depends on how you drive but 20k on RFT is going to be tough. If you tend to drive aggressive then forget 20k. At 20k you will need new tires for sure.

It's probably still too early to tell, but I have 7k on mine and they still have about 85% of tread left. I'd have to measure to be sure, but they're holding up better than I expected.

I have the Centaruto or whatever summer's that come with the sportline on mine.

Yes, it is a wait and see game. I will say that the RFT's today are better than the ones that came on my 07 335I. I have the Good Years on my f30. There are a lot of factors that go into tire wear. Like I said driving style is a big one and also type of pavement you drive on will factor in on tire longevitiy.I do hope they hold up since these tires are pretty expensive.

Exactly the oem run flats are about $400 more than Michelin PSS non run flats.
