I have gone through many brands of tyres and have to say these tyres, especially at the price they are to its competitors - amazing. Exceptional summer grip and greatly balanced for use in the wet too. The only marks down I give are for the tyre wear, not for how quick they get down to 1.6mm because the compound is great and they seem to be lasting forever but its the block pattern. They are almost triangular to a certain point so as the tyre wears, the original tyre pattern fades away to - well before the life of the tyre.
However, totally recommended, I am a high speed, mainly motorway and country/winding roads driver.

These run flat tyres came with Mini Factory JCW in 205/45/17 V84.The tyres felt hard throughout their life and tramlined and torque steered constantly. The road noise was good and confort moderate. I would not purchase again due to the cost of replacement - £160 per wheel fitted. I have opted for Mitchelin Pilot Sport 3 205/45/17 W88 XL as i had these on Mini Cooper S 2003 and they transformed the dry and wet cornering, braking and complete removed tramlining and lessened talk steer.

Not bad tyre but it's not perfect for bumpy roads like we have in Portugal. Nice on high ways and main roads. Not so good on wet because they are really rush and hard. Thinking change to Pirellis Pzero run flat. Who advice me to do this ? Is it the best run flat tire for my mini jcw ?
