Average price for run-flats I would think.

The tyre's tend to wear on the edges as the ones I replaced had a good few miles in them in the middle. Maybe my cornering could be less aggressive so have adjusted my driving accordingly.

Replaced two front tyres on my 6-year-old Z4 with Bridgestone Potenza, as these were on the car when I bought it from new. The front driver's side was original, with 54,700 miles on and the other (replaced at 17,000 miles due to a screw in it) had done 37,000 miles. I wanted to replace both before a long road trip as they were getting worn. For me, the durability and long life of these run flats is excellent. According to the tyre fitter, the older tyre was in better condition than the younger one, despite some signs of cracking due to its age. I also recently had to replace one of the rear tyres due to a puncture...the tyre had part of a house key embedded in it. I was able to drive the 20 or so miles to the dealer to get the tyre replaced - so run flats do work!

Nothing - they do the job!

My first experience of run flat tyres,good levels of grip,firmish ride and a reasonable life span.

A bit pricey which seems to be the norm for run flats,competitively priced though.

The Bridgestone tyres themselves appear to do the job well and I am pleased with them in almost every aspect. Only time will tell if they wear at the same rate as the tyres I have always bought to date for it and I won't be in a position to compare mileage until I require new ones.

I have always to date bought W Tyres, but on this occasion I opted to buy Y Tyres. As a result I find the ride is far harder than previously and therefore I will look o try V tyres next time to enable me a full comparison.

The dry grip in the corners is excellent and very predictable, stopping power is great. Wear in also very consistent and last set I had got over 20k Miles.

As with any runflat, ride is a little harsh but that’s in nature of run flats. Also, as with any rear wheel drive car, the rear will let go without warning in the wet if you are too heavy footed in corners. Not necessarily the fault of the tyres, but the rubber is quite hard so could be contributing to lower wet grip.

Absolutely nothing!

Had 2 of these tyres fitted to the car. 3,600 miles later they've completely gone to slicks which caught me by surprise. Nothing wrong with the vehicle. Sent back to Bridgestone only for them to blame the car and the driving style of my wife who goes to work and back 10 miles away. 4 months these tyres lasted and at £220 each, rip off!! Much better tyres on the market for cheaper, I'd recommend the Goodyear Eagle F1's over these, got them for £90 cheaper too.
