while driving a
BMW X5 4.4i
(325/35 R21) on
After 15000 miles the old Pirelli Run Flats were starting to make a distinct drone noise with 2.5-3 mm tread still across the tread , and wear was showing on chewed edges as always on my X5 , but i was reluctant to spend £1200 on four more run flats which just don’t last . ( i’ve owned 5 , X5 cars in 14 years all suffer tires wear on inside edges or chew the outside edge )
After looking at middle market online reviews i took a chance on the 4 replacement Tires which cost me £520 fitted And balanced . The tires are quiet on the road seem to drive as good as my Premium Main OEM Dealer suppled Run Flats . Tire wear is even across the tread but possibly a little less life expected judging by tread depth wear , but i can live with that because of the discount !
