I'm also shopping for tires.

I realize that a set of Dueler RFT is almost 40 lbs heavier than a set of Continental DWS !!! That's a lot of extra rotating mass !
I'd rather have that weight in the trunk for a spare tire...

My Bridgestone Dueler RFT's have given me no problem on dry, wet or snow.

I don't say these tires will give any problems. I currently have that too.

But if I have to get new ones, consider that 40 lbs of extra rotating weight is... a lot.
Lighter tires will give better mileage and acceleration !

I have the bs rfs on my x5 315 rr and 275 fr, they are massive and expensive. They are noisy when its coming due to replace and the truck eats them on the inner edge. Rears look to be on the 2nd season by the 3rd will be shot on the inner edge( i remove the 20s for winter). My next set ill try the non runflat toyos.

I just replaced my 20" Dunlops with the Bridgestone Dueler RFT. My lease ends next year and just went with RFT's. I got good mileage out of the Dunlops, when I reached the dealer this morning, they had 29785 miles!

I'm running the Bridgestones; they are fairly compliant for a RFT. Hoping they stay quiet - only a few thousand miles so far.

I have OEM Michelin with 32,000 mi and not near the wear mark yet but on Monday I will be ordering Michelin non run flats. I own it out right and the wife wants a better ride. I could stretch at least 35,000 to 38,000 mi but will not. I ordered the spare at purchase just to have the choice when the time came. I will be trading in about a year so I think the timing is about right.
