I can't pretend to be an expert on this, but from what I have gathered:

1. Euforias are first generation RFT's, and may not have been the best of that generation. Plenty of people have dumped them ( and other early generation RFT's) because of ride and noise issues
2. RFT's have improved significantly with each new generation, but some people are still dumping the latest ones. I'm increasingly certain Bridgestone's latest RE050A RFT is at least partly to blame for the flawed ride in my e92 335i for example.
