Pirelli [email protected] are not all-season tires. If you want all-season run flats, your only choices in 205/45-17 are Continental ContiProContact SSR and Goodyear Eagle RS-A EMT.

The cheapest run flats are Kumho ECSTA SPT XRP.

Thank you Miniac,


Since I got the car I have a problem with Pirelli tires, and to tell you the truth I am sick an tired of problem with NYC roads and run flats, do you think it is good idea to change to non run flats?
Can you recommend something ?

If you switch to conventional tires you'll need to carry some sort of mobility kit (compressor, sealant and/or plugs) to deal with flats.

You might want to switch to a 215/45-17 size for more sidewall protection against potholes.

You can use the Tire Rack site to check availability, pricing and customer ratings of tires in the particular class (all-season or summer) in which you're interested.
