Tire reimbursement?

Well after a re-alignment I found out its time to replace the tires. My car still has the factory bridgestones with around 19,000 miles on them. While researching which tires to change to I ran across this article:

http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2...-buy-them.html

The part that stood out to me was, "Many owners on the AutoGuide Forum Network complained that they were replacing their OEM run-flat tires within 20,000 miles. This prompted a lawsuit, which was settled by BMW and Bridgestone. Members of the settlement will receive a full refund for the purchase of replacement tires if they were needed before 10,000 miles. If replacement occurred between 10,000 miles up through 30,000 miles, reimbursement will be 50 percent or less. If buyers are experiencing wear at around 20,000 miles, thatís less than half the life of an ordinary tire."

I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with this reimbursement? Also, preferences on runflat vs. non runflat, and any tire recomendations? For the record I did use the and got a lot of knowledge on my last question.
