I just went through a massive suspension refresh and put the Primacy MXM4 ZP on. Thread here, look at last update:

I originally paid $147/each. They are $129/each now. I cannot praise these grand touring run flats more. I can compare apples to apples now with a E90 loaner with less then 1k miles. Hands down, these tires, along with the suspension bits I replaced made my car feel better then it did from factory at quite a low price. Please note these are listed as GRAND TOURING A/S, not Standard. When tire companies put the "Grand" in there, they typically focus on noise and impact response to differentiate them from their standard line. Essentially, its to market to the premium A/S consumer.

I was just able to drive these in wet, and the traction is top notch compared to EL42/Conti BMW orig gave the car. Its quieter, it absorbs hard impacts better, and its got alot more traction in wet/dry.

$129/each!! No brainer if you are shopping for run flats.

More info on the tire here with quick wet tests
