I'm running Sumitomo's on my 335i and very happy with them. Tire Rack had delayed shipping on the Hankook's in the sport package size when I was looking about a month ago.

Bridgestone 3G runflats?

Anyone (aka "Gary") know when the Bridgestone 3G runflats will be available? I'm hoping to go straight to them when the winter tires come off.
