Utter rubbish- they are basically like a budget tyre but with a premium name complete waste of money

Especially for this kind o tire very good comfort and noise levels, even on coarse road surfaces (like in Sweden).

Rubbish! Having run various tyres from budget to high performance these come near the bottom of the list. I ran them in non-RFT form on a Golf R32 and they were mediocre at best but they came standard on the BMW so didn't have a choice. They are very hard and crash about quite lot, they tramline something terrible and traction control light comes on over speed bumps (<10 mph) and on hard cornering - all in the dry! Now, in the wet they are almost lethal. No grip in the corners, wheels spin when pulling off the lights even if you slip the clutch. You only have to visit a few BMW forums or other tyre review sites to read that these comments / concerns are common across the range of BMWs. Avoid these tyres.... I think BMW have switched to Conti's now as I didn't see any of them on the new BMWs at the dealer ship and that's a good thing!

They last but the grip suffers - I expect a tyre to be softer. Good levels of grip but give up too quickly on a track (too hard). Any water on the road and you feel more like on ski - this is probably due to the size, rather than the tyre itself. Good all rounders. Very strong - any non-RFT would give up on pot holes. I will never go back to non-run flats - first class technology, tested with no pressure during a BMW event - brilliant! I highly recommend the RFT for any enthusiastic driver with a powerful car. Those with comfort in mind should look elsewhere.
