Replace RFs?
 
Absolutely hate the OE Dunlop RFs....feel like your driving on rocks feeling every little bump in the road. Would you recommend replacing with another supreme RF such as the Michelin, or a good "non-RF" such as Continental Extreme? If non-RF, what do you do about a spare....would Fix-a-Flat suffice??

Many threads on this. Comes down to personal preference.

Myself, I have a repair kit in the trunk with compressor as well as AAA. Just replaced my RFT's with Pilot Super Sports.

IMO, there are no good RFT's.

I have been thinking about this as well since it makes sense to get regular tires now (I go through them in about 24K and then put the RF for finishing the lease.

I notice you have AAA, will BMW Emergency Road Service not come out if you have regular tires?

I have a bmw repair kit and bridgestone potenza's non rfts. Acs suspension and 19 inches and the comfort is great. Can't compare though. I replaced the rfts immediately at delivery

Please do it ASAP. It will transform your car a lot. I have my runflats in storage and I replaced them with Michelin A/S sports.

no regrets at all on replacing run flats. Pilot Super Sports for summer, Pilot Alpin for winter. Great improvement.
I carry a compact spare and tools/jack unless all truck space is needed. Also have BMW mobility kit - goo plus compressor in little storage space in trunk.
My understanding on BMW Emergency Road service is they will take you to the closest BMW dealer, whereas AAA is far more accommodating, with a tire fix or take you to somewhere that can fix/replace the tire.

Michelin sports for sure
