Very Very Disappointed

Still love my 2012 128i convert, but really po'd about the crap tires BMW put on the car.

We did European Delivery last February and rented snow tires in Germany from John Lance (excellent experience). Back here in the US I have put 7200 miles on the car minus the 800 plus miles we did on the German snows. Yesterday I decided to "save" the original expensive Goodyear Eagle NCT 5 Runflats by buying cheaper Nettos (?) to use until I return the car at lease end. The NTB guys told me those damn Eagles were already down to 3/100 on the rear. And I drive like a spirited old lady - no burn-outs, below 80 mph and in an area with relatively cool temps. At that rate, I'd need 4 sets of rear tires by the end of my lease. Unacceptable. Anyone else similarly dissatisfied?
