Factory Fit Run Flats Good News and Bad

Hi

my first post here - I also have, er had, bridgestone Duelers 205/55 17 RFT on my Countryman D all4.

I had a puncture yesterday at 30mph within half a mile of my destination and the RFT held up perfectly. That's the end of the good news.

the puncture is too close to the sidewall to repair so I have been trying to source a replacement. There are none of these tyres available in the country through BMW or independents.

For Run flats I have discovered it is strongly recommended to have the identical tyre on the same axle so my puncture has resulted in the very expensive purchase of two new Pirellis on the rear axle to get back on the road.

Its a massive problem with RFTs generally, they may be able to drive 50 miles but then you're screwed!

Normal tyres are cheaper and perform better. When you have a puncture use tyreweld to get you home(or BMW recovery if its bad, although I have only ever had one like that in nearly 35 years driving) and then its relatively easy to get a repair or replacement.

Pirelli Cint 225/45/18V/61.
Have had to have them re-balanced after 400 miles, already. Have had Pirelli Cints on two previous new Cars and have always had problems with wrt Balancing. I ended up fitting Michelin on each occasion, within less than a thousand miles.

Countryman SD ALL4

Hey, I've a couple of questions, My Countryman 2.0SD ALL4 is running 225/45 18s and they now need replacing. Is that a standard size or is there any benefit in running 205/40 18s.
Secondly what's everyone using as this thread hasn't been commented on for a while. Are you all replacing with Run Flats or standard tyres, thanks for any advice
