Got rid of run flats as soon as I could, definitely a great performance upgrade over the stocks. I run Hankook Ventus V12 Evo 2

What psi are you guys running the Michelin tires? Looking for the best psi to put in when the tires are cold for the best grip all around. I think right now I have the OEM psi set.

I'm on PS4S and now have to think about stiffer springs. Stock springs were great with run-flats but now its too soft.

Thumbs up Run Flats

Test Drove a new 2019 430I and the run flats suck, hard and noisy.
I was thinking of the same tire swap.

As far as getting a flat...I'm 61 and have had to change a tire once in all the years of driving. Probably a better chance of an accident than getting a flat.

I have MPS4Sís as well, love them. One word of caution - these are summer tires and become like bricks when the temps near freezing. I took my car on a road trip a few weeks ago and stayed overnight in Prescott AZ, the morning temps were in the high twenties. I was amazed at how hard the tires became, with very little traction until they warmed up and the temps got into the 40ís.

Also, successive exposure to freezing temps can actually damage the tires.
