Had Bridgestones on me E92 awful ride and it got worse in cold weather and they wore really strangely. Dealer recommended Continental, transformed the car instantly. Both runflats.
I agree the the F series is far better than the E series.

On my Alpina my summer wheels have 265/30/19 Michelin Supersport tyres on.

I picked up some winter wheels which have 17" 45 profile Bridgestone Blizzak LM25 run flats and was expecting the ride to be a lot better - they aren't!

I'm sticking with the run flats.

Be either Continental or Goodyear AS 2.

Any suggestions?

As I mentioned previously, my default is Michelin, not used either of these 2 above as run flats, but as a non run flat tyre, I’ve had Continental tyres previously and been pleased with them

Can I go from 89 to 93 load index without any adverse issues?

I've got the Goodyears. They are superb in the dry, but less so in the wet. You get quite a lot of road noise too, although I've noticed that with most run flats

Yes you can go up in index but not down.

They should have stiffer sidewalls, It’s unlikely you will notice any difference. Then again, you may be that person who is ultra sensitive to it.

I personally would prefer a slightly stiffer sidewall for slightly sharper steering if given the choice.

They have A rating for road noise compared to C of the continental's.

Had the AS2 then AS3 on my Octavia VRS never let me down in any weather.

Besides the wet how have you found them? Are they AS2 run flat?
