2012 X3 17 inch tires- tough to find

My 2.8 came with Michelins MXV4 Runflats. They have about 36k on them and I have a screw in the rear left tire that is close to the sidewall but not on it. No one will fix it. Shame, I have a lot of...

Tire Rack is pushing 17 inch Pirelli's RFT's. I seem to recall people not being happy with the Pirelli's. Maybe I'm wrong.

i am mad that Michelin no longer produces the 245/55 R17 102H Primacy MXM4 run flat

Any recommendations? Thanks.
