Falken 452s on the Porsche are great.

I also had them inflated with Nitrogen as the guy said he'd also give me some magic beans and a piece of toast in which one could clearly make out the face of Jesus.

I am looking forward to my tyres wearing now Then I can get rid of the bloody RFT's and cringe less when driving down roads I know are bumpy.

I wonder if they were filled with Helium it would knock 0.01 off a pod time

Guys i wanna get rid of the RFTs too.

did you buy a spare tyre after moving to non-RFT? does that add unwanted extra weight to the car? what happens when theres a puncture on the non-rfts?

Most people get a can of 'goo' from Halfords or similar and maybe a small compressor for the boot. You could get a Mobility Kit directly from BMW (M cars use them as they don't have RFTs) which includes both of the above I understand. There is an official E9X space-saver spare wheel which has been posted on here somewhere which I suppose is the ultimate protection if you can spare the space in the boot.

Found the link for the spare wheel...

Here's the Mobility Kit...
