Anyone got any advice on what's available 205/45/17 run flat,any tyre that doesn't tramline as I've just had 2x new front lower bushes replaced so will be tighter on the steering ,and now need 2x new front tyres I fancy the bridgestones but don't know if they still tramline?? Cheers any review welcome.

my 2012 countryman came with Pirelli Cinturato P7 Run Flat and they do not tramline at all.
i just checked tirerack.com and the tire is available in 205/50-17
however they are expensive tires and i will probably get a non-RF tire when these are gone
they also ride very harshly at the stock 32 psi inflation, but the ride improved dramatically running the inflation pressure up to 38psi
if your speedo reads low, as most claim, going to the 50 series may help correct the indicated speed

MINIs seem to tramline when the tread goes down to 3mm or so. This happened on my 2007 Cooper on 16 inch rf and my 2009 S on 17 inch rf tyres.
