Hi Guys!

I have a R56 Mini Cooper with 17" 205/45/17 run flats (Dunlop SP Sport 01)

My local Mini garage have told me the front two need replacing after a brake pad replacement and quoted me £400 for the two! :mad:

Having a look on black circles e.t.c. i can seem to get them cheaper, but I'm thinking should i actually go ahead with run flats, are non RF better? and which non RF's would you recommend?

Also, could i get away with having 2 normal fronts and 2 run flats at the rear?

Thanks :)

HI, run flats are expensive but if you get a puncture on christmas eve at 9pm in the back end of nowhere, would you rather have a spray can of tyre weld or runflats?

Im about to replace my fronts (run flats). Have got pirelli's but heard dunlops are better. Lots of options on ebay for part worn or brand new!! give it a try. BMW charge 180 quid each for pirelli runflats!! :(
