Default Run flats anyone?

I just had an oil change on my 430 and the technician discovered my left front run flat tire had extreme wear on the inside edge. I had the front end aligned, and ordered new tires, but now I'm stuck with 3 run flats in good shape with plenty of tread left. The tires have about 7,000 miles on them. Anyone out there need some RFTs? They are 245/40RF18 Dunlop ZP Sport 5000M. I'm not to upset because I can finally dump the RFTs and get some real tires! Looking forward to an improved and quieter ride! Let me know if your interested in the tires.

I have four used hankook tires for 150$ you could try out. Definitely makes the ride 100% better over run flats. Its in the wheel classifieds

Well I finally did it! Got ride of the RFTs and replaced with Conti Extreme DMS. My daughter says it like riding on a cloud. Now I feel like I'm driving a Lexus, icing on the cake for my 430!

I have had the DWS for over 2 years now. If your experience is like mine, you won't be disappointed. It looks like I will get about 4oK out of mine.
