I'm not Gary, but the only reason to buy runflats is if you don't have a spare. You will wish you didn't if you do. If you get 30K out of them it would be a miracle.

I don't have that issue with my 750Li, but had it on a Nissan

Thanks for the good advice. I have already 18K miles on the tires and I think I will get another 10K out of them. I guess I shouldn't be complaining if some are getting only 19K.
