I have those on my F10, nice tires, smoother than the GY and better in the foul weather.
Run flat will ride a bit stiffer when compare to the non-runflats, The gap is closing though, I remember my 1st set of runflats from 6 years ago, the ride was much worst. Personally, I think BMW did a great job designing the F10's suspesnion to ride the way it does with the runflats. I had the same Conti tires on my last A6 but in a non-runflat version and it did ride a bit smoother. It really comes down to risk vs benefit. Personally, I think the F10's ride is smooth enough with my 18" Conti runflat that I will not compromise safety for a little bit of comfort.
