BMW E91 325i Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Pirelli P Zero Runflat given 71% (255-40-17-W)
Driving on mostly motorways for 6000 easy going miles
Positive: they wear evenly as compared to other run flat tyres I used (Michelin Pilot Primacy ZP, Continental Sport Contact 2 SSR), thus generating less noise due to the irregular wear. The grip on dry and wet is excellent, the braking distance is short. They are also slightly cheaper ("only" Euro 200 each before installation).
Negative: they are hard as other run flat tyres. I check tyre pressure once each month, but they still wear out fast. After 6000km easy going driving on mostly highways, half of the tyre depth is gone. The tyres may last around 12000km in total, which are expensive for the price.
At this tyre size, there are not many run flat tyre choices. At least these tyres have much newer technology and have better reviews compared to others (Bridgestone RE050A run flat and Continental sport contact 2 SSR). Sometimes I am thinking of replacing them with normal tyres, but it doesn't seem safe and interesting to use either spare wheels or tyre sealant on the highway shoulder especially in dark. So probably I will stay with these tyres.
