Drove over a curb last night, tire pressure light came on and the right front tire looked low. I then continued to drive approximately 30 miles at 35-40 mph till I got home. Did some research and decided to stay with the run flats. This is my first BMW and it just occurred to me that every other new car I have bought was delivered with terrible tires that lasted barely 15K miles. So I decided to put the exact same tires on the car. Picking it up later today. Spending 270 per tire.
How are the Bridgestones in the rain, the reviews on the Bridgestone in the wet are not too good, how about the noise factor, I have the Michelins and have not been too impressed with them especially at 329 a pop.
