I'd recommend Goodyear Eagle F1's or Yokohama Parada Spec II. I've had both and found them both to be decent all-rounders.

These two websites do offers every now and then....

I had Bridgestone RFT on my car when it was new. They sounded like being in a jet plane. The roar sound was terrible on roads repaired with just chippings and tar.

There must be some good RFTs that are quieter but until someone categorically says that I swapped them for non run flats.

I swapped from Bridgestone run flats to Michelin run flats and they were a world apart, much quieter, much nicer ride and also better grip.

Just had a hire 218i with runflats over the last few days. They just ruin a car.

The road noise is noticeable worse. They also are still horrible to drive on roads that are less than smooth. They are crashy over humps and bumps to the extent they unsettle the car. It really isn't good to drive.

Runflats maybe have improved over the years, but they are still a million miles away from real tyres.
