BMW 530d F11 Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Fulda Kristall Control HP2 given 90% (245-45-18-V)
Driving on a combination of roads for 3500 average miles
Very good grip and driving in wet roads. Very good in poor snow, also in wet snow, but not very good in ice roads for braking and no good grip in ice. Noisy when speed more than 100km/h, but good handling and road feedback.

Writing about the Continental Sport Contact 3 SSR Run flat given 53% (245-45-18-)
Driving on mostly motorways for 15 easy going miles
Fitted to BMW F11 530D SE Touring.

Whilst this is the first car I have had with run flat tyres I am not overly impressed. The car originally had 19" rims but when I bought the car I had the garage change the wheels to 18" as British roads are now so bad.
Firstly ride comfort. You feel the shock of every potholed road imperfection. I had to replace front wishbones at 50,000 miles (Driving for a living I have never had to do this on any other car!) and a buckled front wheel.
My driving is 80% motorway driving style for economy so tyre wear is disappointing. Considering the continentals were new when i bought the car, in 30,000 miles i have had two sets of rear tyres and will shortly need a third set and am on my second front set. When driving Miss Daisy I expect better mileage! I have just put Bridgestone Driveguard on the front and will see how they perform. Front tyres lasted 28,000

Came with the car. Best thing I did was to take them off and throw them away. If you see someone else with these tyres on their car stay a long distance away from them.
