19" bridgestone potenza runflats

I have a complete (used) set of tyres from 330d. The tyre fitter reckon the rears had an other 1,000+ in them and the fronts more. Here are the details:

Bridgestone Potenza RFT

255/30 R19 91Y
225/35 R19 88Y

The more worn tyres are from the rear of the car.

If you are interested please email or post offers. The tyres can either be collected (Nr wells in somerset) or they can be sent by courier, which will be at buyers cost. Paisley will ship four tyres for 27.99. Sure there are many more and possibly cheaper.

I swapped the tyres for Conti SP5, none run flat. --------See post below for photos.

Hi Davy,

I appreciate the interest and apologise for slow response.

I don't have a tread measure thing. But will pass local tyre chap tomorrow and get him to measure for me.

And it is also getting complicated. BMW dealer has been really good and is providing new wheels under warranty (lacquer is coming off---they are not damaged!), so I need to get to them for new wheels. However, the tread on the conti SP5 rears is probably illegal, so I suspect (hope to get time to talk to dealer tomorrow) that they would not take off the conti's and put back on to new wheels and let me drive away.

So I may either ask them to put the bridgestones back on, or get two new conti's for rear, or any one of the other permuations. YTalked to Protyres and they may have Komho's which seem to have goods reviews.

So if you can bear with me for a few days I will slowly get answers.

Thanks,

Hi Davyxx,

the local tyre guy reckons 5mm on front and 3mm on back. Also spoke to BMW about new rims and they said they would only but BMW approved tyres back on, so it seems I am destined to go back to run flats for a while. Should be interesting to go from RFT, to Conti SP5's back to RFT and see what difference I feel.

I have liked the conti SP5's.
