Tyres

Looks like I'll be needing new front tyres in the next 2 months or so.

Currently have Continental RFT fitted. Tbh I haven't found them to be that bad to drive on in any weather condition.

I'd like to stick with the RFT but not sure to get Continental again or look at either Goodyear or Michelin.

What do you guys recommend?

Michelin

Popped a set on my last car with run flats and it transformed it. Always used Michelin’s when replacing for past 10+ years and been very happy with them

Michelin,but they have got a confusing model line up,the PS4 is a greener (eco) tyre and the PS4s is a proper sports tyre,so becareful when pricing up and reading reviews !

Have you tried a car without runflats? You won't go back.

You have to do all 4 at the same time though.

How about tyres with a seal inside? No loss of pressure if you pick up a nail and carry on driving -
apparently.

I haven't tried them myself, but have you looked at Bridgestone Driveguards:

Or take your pick of tyres and get a couple of cans of Holts tyre weld, often on bogof at Halfords. And if you have breakdown cover your totally covered.

Last car had non RFT I haven't noticed much difference tbh. As they were both low profile at 40

I meant another F3x BMW.

The noise and smoothness improve noticeably. The steering will be a bit softer though.

The F3x is better than the E9x cars on runflats though.
