Brand of Run Flats for 2013 F10

Curious to ask what brand of run flat tires are shipping with MY13 F10s. I know BMW uses Michelin, Pirelli and Dunlop brands. I had Dunlop run flats on our E60. I believe F10 Xdrive uses Goodyear all season.

My 2013 F10 (non xdrive) came with Dunlop tires.

2013 550i (non x-drive) with M-Sport and staggered 19" wheels came with Dunlops.
My 2013 535xi came with Goodyear tires
XDrive versions are still being delivered with the dreaded Good Year LS2 RFT's. These are the tires that have given people all the head aches. Michelin and Dunlops seem to be fine.
On runflats, take 18 inch, Michelin primacy.
My UK 520d was delivered with Continental Contisport 3s.
I was very, very disappointed to see that BMW installed Dunlop run flat tires on my 2012 535i. I had extremely poor performance from TWO sets of Dunlop tires on my E60 BMW. The first set wore out in 10K miles. The second had to be replaced due to wear after 11K miles. I did not realize how adversely the Dunlop tires affected the ride and handing of my BMW until I replaced the Dunlop tires with another brand (Bridgestone). BMW should drop Dunlop as a tire supplier. Dunlops must be the cheapest tires BMW can buy.
2013 535i M-Sport package Michelin Primacy-HP. Front: 19x8.5, 245/40 R19. Rear: 19x9.0, 275/35 R19.
