Green Cooper Tyres for a 2006 Mini Cooper S

Hi! I am new to the forum. I have to change urgently the runflat tyres of my 2006 Mini Cooper S as I am leaving for a long trip to Italy. I live in Greece so I guess it has to be summer tyres. I have heard all imaginable arguments: almost all recommend Bridgestone but then these tyres have disappeared from the market & won't be available before 15 days. Someone insists I should get Dunlop SP SPort 01 DSST. Others talk about Michelin and Continental. What do you recommend?

Are you looking to replace the run flats or switch to conventional tires?

Hi, I have a 2006 Mini Cooper S Cabrio
I have the 205/45-17 Pirelli Euforia - I'm pretty sure all run flat tires are great, and designed to ensure the car handles well.
But I do love the name Pirelli Euforia.

I doubt many people running Pirelli Eufori@s bought a second set

I switched from runflats to Toyo Proxes T1-R 215/45 R17 W.
Coming to the end of my second set (T1-S first time) and will certainly buy again.
The extra width, 215 instead of 205 is no problem and helps protect the wheel rim.
