Need tire recommendation

I have a CPO F30 2016 328i with the original run-flats and want to replace them with run-flats that are:

1. Quieter, if possible
2. Probably a summer tire, given I live in South Texas and it's hot/warm/dry here most of the year

I have 19" wheels.

Any recommendations for value/quality/styling?

Thanks!

Everyone will have their own choice, here in the UK mine is the Michelin PS 4s. Good all round tyre, I have Continental Contact 5 on the back and they are super easy to spin and loose traction.

Oh that... I'm pretty sure OP made a typo on that.

Seriously.... quitter, value, quality, and styling doesn't go with RFT... so it's a typo

I have 19" SC6 all around and they are the best tires I have ever used and the Industry Respected German Autobild tests since 2016 confirm this.

Might be helpful to know which "original run-flats" are on the OP's car now.

I have the Pirelli P7 Cinturato run-flats on my 320i and they are WAY better in every way (noise, ride, handling) than the Goodyear Eagle LS-2 run-flats on my wife's X3.

If I were to buy run-flats again, which I'm not, I would go with the Pirelli's.

Reconsider the run flats. They're fine up through 16 inch rims, passable with 17 & 18 inch, but with 19 inch and larger the short stiff sidewalls make for a hard and noisy ride.

Or you can go with Michelin PS2 RFT as an option
