Mein Auto: From BMWs to Porsches
Learned something about run flats today

I am at the tire shop replacing my right front tire, which caught a nail Tuesday morning, and the tech tells me that I may have about 6 months before I need to replace the rears. That surprises me because I've put only 3500 miles on the tires that were new when I purchased the car (CPO) in September 2011. What I learned from the tech is that in the case of run flats the rear tires last about half as long as the fronts. Perhaps others here knew about this...I didn', I thought I would share this information.

Have a great Memorial weekend all!
