I had a 428i loaner for a couple of weeks earlier this year. The Potenza S001 225/45R18 RFT's it had were not terrible. I'm not sure if it was the tires or the suspension setup that made them livable.

The femme Fatale analogy only works if the RFTs offer something alluring that the non-RTFS don't.

The RFTs might work fine for some of us (definitely not me!), however I'd strongly recommend anyone looking to replace their tires to give the non-RFTs a shot. There is not a lot to lose and...
