Sorry....tyres again

Car: 2005 JCW currently on 205/45/17 runflats and am looking to change to non RFT. No suspension or wheel changes or planned either.
Driving: A & B roads in SE England, very little motorway or dual carriageway work.
I like a blat but I'm not a fast driver as I need my licence and health but enjoy a 'spirited' drive.
I tend to use my X3 in winter or if really wet.

When I recently bought the car it had mismatched rears and one is on borderline tread depth and the other doesn't appear to be available to match so I am in for two tyres anyway.
I tend to use eTyres as they come to my home to fit and that is very useful. I also hate the tyre fitting companies as all they do is wreck rims.
In a conversation with them, they have recommended Kumho KU39 as a replacement but in non-RFT form. They would be a year round tyre.

Anyone know anything about these tyres?
Or any other suggestions.

Hi ya

I have use falken ze912 for a while now on my r53 never had a problem may be a little noisy but there fine I pain 72 each when I bought 4 and I do push them :-)
My dad has falken ze914 on his clubbie and he loves them I converted him to non run flats and it's the only time I ever herd him say he should have listen to me :-)))) and have less road noise

I always use the adac web site to look at the reviews and test there lots of others out ther but that one suites me :-)

Hope this helps
