I'll be ordering 4 non-RFTs later on today and dumping the bridgestone RFTs. Incidentally the tyre on the wheel in question has inside edge scuffing etc. It's the other half's car and she religiously checks her pressures fortnightly and keeps them up around 3 bar for the rears (we were aware of the general issue when we got the car last April). The other wheels/tyres are all fine.

Let's see what happens...
Firstly congrats on the missus having a 335i . I was going to change my tyres to non run flats but it seems that if they do crack then BMW won't change them if they've been runnung on non run flats.
