Exclamation Non runflat suggestions

Looking to buy some non run flats. i have the 20" 333 Msport wheel
looking for a overall more comftorable ride for me and the fam. Everyday use!
Other than the Contis DWS, what is another option.
Please state only from your experience and what attributes the tires your recommending have and if you had runflats before the switch.
Thanks so much Rob

Michelin Latitude Tour HP's, I have over 25000 Miles on mine and plenty of tread left. The ride is MUCH smoother compared to the Run Flat's that were stock.

Dunlops -> which in my mind are the best run-flats on the market.

Differences: general ride, noise, harshness...all improved.

It really depends on what you're looking for. If you are simply going to putt around the OC you don't need all seasons . I've put the 'kooks on our '08 550, the Z4 and now the 650 vert. I like 'em

106Y - I think it's about 2,000# x4 = ~8,000# GVW

Y's are speed rated faster than the X5 can travel... except off a cliff

Donno what a 3.5 weighs but my lard ass X5M is about 5,300 dry so wet it's about 5,500#. That allows for 2500# of people and stuff - > should be a comfortable margin of safety .
