I'll likely need replacements for my Run Flats for my BMW 335D Wagon. 255/35/R19. Anyone got a recommendation. Want loads of Grip ideally not too noisy and obviously, not $1000 a corner :0

PS4 is slight softer I reckon, but grips probably similar to ps3... both were quiet for a while. They are both noisy on chip seal but that’s just physics. Good tyres though my ps3 only lasted 27k or so? Rear anyway, fronts still got some life left at 34k

No such thing as RFT PS4's according to discount tyres, but perelli and conti's were both $760 a corner!!!

This.

 

Last two sets of new Continental CrossContact's on the X5 have cost $800 and $700 fitted. Both sets from tyre companies after buyers have replaced stock wheels with bigger alloys.

 

A couple of months ago I picked up a set of brand new alloys for our Ford Focus, wrapped in brand new PS4's, for $600 :)

 

I have PS3's on my 535is and they are stunning tyres. I can't remember the price, I think it was $800 again from one of the places I bought the X5 tyres from.

 

 

Very lucky man!

 

 

It's just being in the right place at the right time.

 

The second set of Conti's saw me check TM every day for about 4 months !

Just replaced all four tires on my 2013 VF Commodore with Bridgestone Potenzas Re003 for $299 a corner from Tony's in Glenfield. Opted to fill them all with nitrogen too to see what the difference was/will be in the long run.

 

Oh and got new 2017 Commodore stock rims (pictured) for under $400 on TM too!

...are you happy with them so far?

 

What are they like for noise?

At the risk of sparking a tedious "nitrogen fill" argument on this thread, I can confidently say there will be no meaningful difference in the long run! (or the short run...)

So far am very happy with them. Handles and corners very well. The noise is very minimal, although I do have the radio on most of the time, and the cabin is pretty soundproof too. When I got them, it was raining very hard, and they were fine.

 

With Nitrogen fill, I've heard that they don't have to be refilled as often, and apparently they don't heat up as much too.
