Original tires - how many miles?

I have a 2008 650i coupe with 21274 miles on it. I have the Bridegstone Potenza run flat tires. I am getting ready to take a 3600 mile trip. How many miles are they normally good for?

zhuskers1, I'l explain this slowly in case you don't read very fast. What was the tread depth to start with? What amount is left? If it's more than half then your tyres will go about 44k miles total. Probably enough for a 3.6k mile trip. **rofl**
