My price examples are Goodyear Eagle summer tires, dimension 225/50-17 fitting BMW F10. so probably the dimension is different from your example. But anyway:

A set of 4 "normal" costs NOK 5700 = USD 981.
A set of 4 RFT tires costs NOK 6600 = USD 1136 (+ 15.8%).

These are prices from a large net shop. Prices through BMW dealers would probably be like 20% higher.

I understand all your arguments against RFT. And indeed this year is the first that I drive RFT even during winter. But only on my F12, not the Mini. I wanted to try it out since I was so content with the tires that sat on the new car.
