I drove through The Bronx on I-95 on my many trips to New England. I always thought, "Damn, I'd hate to have a flat tire here." So, I dig your rap about the benefit of RFT's, at least in NYC.Thanks for the info. I'll look at the site.
I'm at 35k and my 2nd set of ties on the X3. I changed from the Goodyear to P7, but they don't seem to last much better. I think it is the driver problem. I'm not sure they will last 6 more months when the lease is up.
for RFT... there will be a war.
I'm on the supporting side. Ignore the harsh ride and price, they keep me on the road and get me to a safe place. I just had a bad puncture which made me file my first ever claim to Tirerack. For my next bimmer, I'll trade the tiny little 'storage space' under the trunk floor for a $150 spare tire option in addition to RFT.
