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".

too soon to make a comment, low noise and good handling in summertime in Florida

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.
