F07 tires recommendation?


I understand it has been asked before, but do most of you guys ditch the run flat tires when getting new tires? I have a 528GT and it came with Pirelli P7 RTF but I really did not like the ride quality and the driving experience of it.

Since its about time to get new tires now, I am thinking of ditching the run flat and get the non run flat instead. I am sure the drive and ride quality will improve. However, that means there will be no spare tires and the only option left is the get a toll truck if there is a severe leak or flat tire?

My car comes with 245/50R18 which is quite an odd size which only left me a few choices, which are: The Continental Sport Contact 5 (CSC5), the Pirelli P7 non runflat version (If there is any) and the Bridgestone T005.

Have anyone got any experience among these tires? or is there any recommendations?

Thank you very much in advance!

Michelin makes a run on flat (the distance you can go when flat depends on the car loading and may not be the same as a true RFT) that has a softer sidewall in that size. That's what I ended up with on mine.
