Mein Auto: 330i
Pirelli P Zero A/S RFT are smooth

Finally replaced the Bridgestones with Pirelli's on my 330i. The smoothness and lack of noise is noticable. Thet are also marked M&S so should be good winter tires. They are also Made In America (Rome GA). Never liked the Bridgestone. Paid $200 + at STS.

Pirelli's also have the best calendars. Google them!

Question

I'm going to replace my OEM Conti RFTs with the Pirelli P Zero Nero A/S. Leaning towards the non-RFT version of the same tire.

Thanks for posting this review. We agree that this has been a great alternative tire to the original runflat tires.

Are these considered 3rd Gen run flats? N4S

It just so happens that I'm tire hunting now. May have to give Pirelli strong consideration based upon their marketing materials.

I replaced the OEM Bridgestones with Pirelli P_Zero all seasons when the car was 3 weeks old. If I had to keep the Bridgestones I would have gotten rid of the car. They were vile.
