On older asphalt roads and the chip seal resurfacing they are fond of in this area, the tires are quite noisy. But theses tires have a pronounced harmonic at 59 to 62 mph. A low pitched hum or howl that is just unacceptable. Hard to believe they make and sell these. Don't they even test drive their products?? Come on, Bridgestone, you're better than this. Or not? Would I buy these tires again? Hell no!

tires are much quieter than the OEM Continentals. Handle well in dry and wet conditions.

Really good tire! Just a bit of road noise, but I understand that to be the trade off for the durability of the tire. I wish I could get more miles out of the tire but understand that's a trade off for the security of knowing you can drive for up to 50 miles after a puncture. Thus, providing a level of safety by not having to stop on the side of the road.

I researched run flat tires for months as we do not have a spare due to a third seat in our Rogue. I finally decided on these Bridgestones and got a few local quotes. I then found Simple Tire. I saved around $250 including installation (which was cheaper than quoted on the site). Free shipping was a bonus. The site recommendation of NTB for installation was perfect. They were terrific. Got an engine service as well. It was just "Simple".

I haven't been able to put these tires through the full range of tests as it is not winter here yet and it hasn't been very wet either. I drive a 2012 BMW 550 xDrive and had to deal with the Goodyear stock run-flats. They were noisy, harsh riding and expensive to replace. IMO not a good tire, terrible wet traction, loud and made the ride too heavy and clunky. The Bridgestone's are an improvement in the ride quality and noise levels. I immediately noticed the difference. They are also a little "softer" in that they do not immediately handle as well as the Goodyear's, they are a little "floatier" in tight maneuvers. This did improve as i "scuffed" them up with a few miles. Still the turn in and hold comes in a little slower. They do hold as well, they simply do not enter the move as aggressively. I would still purchase these over the Goodyear's as the handling is not compromised, it is simply delivered a bit differently. As for wear, its too early to tell. I strongly recommend this tire over the stock Goodyear's run-flats for any BMW owner and other "stuck" in run-flat land.
