I am happy enough with the Summer P7s that I will not get rid of the runflats. I also don't want to give up cargo space for the donut.

In my opinion, it is better to run Summer tires and get a separate set of winter tires if your climate dictates it. The all-seasons are a compromise in every sense of the word.
wait, you didn't like your tires so they just swapped them out?? wish i would have thought of that! wonder if it's too late to try with 1600 miles on the car... would love to swap the Goodyears for the P7s
