To RunFlat or not to RunFlat

Recommended Posts

...that is the question...

So, in the not too distant future I’m going to need new tyres.
I had previously changed my BMW to standard tyres resulting in less noise and better ride.
I’m tempted to do the same for my LC 500 (21” wheels)

Has anyone swapped their run flats to standard tyres?
Any recommendations?
Which inflation kit do you carry?

Thanks

What mileage have your tyres done?

Like you,I found run flats on BMWs to be poor,but I have to say that the Dunlop’s on my 21 inch wheels have been surprisingly compliant and comfortable.If I were renewing now for any reason I would stick with the same.No idea what they cost or how easy they are to source.

Cheers,

A J.

Thanks AJ,
I’m still on the original Pilot Sport after 7k
Which Dunlop’s are you on? I haven’t seen runflat Dunlop’s for sale anywhere, just seems to be Pirelli or Michelin.

My car has 6k miles now.

The tyres are Dunlop SP Sport Maxx 050.

I assume they were factory fitted and are stamped Made in Japan.I have seen reference to them on USA forums somewhere .

Looks like they may not be available here from what you say.Typical!
