Can someone please give an advice? THX

Hi, guys,

I am planning to repace all 4 tires for my 2006 330i with Michelin all seasons run flat.

But, I couldn't tell which one is run flat from Michelin's website when I searched by vehicle.
If you happen to have a same size as mine (225/45R17 91H), can you please tell me the model # I should order?

Thanks a lot for help me out.

It should say ZP if it's runflat.

Thanks, but it looked that no "ZP" specified in my search result.
Did I miss something even before searching?

Tire Rack has the Continental ContiSportContac 2 SSR for $179 each. I don't think the Michelin ones that you had are available anymore.

Yup, max performance summer tire. If you want all season runflats, the Pirelli PZero Nero M&S RFT is on sale 141/ea plus shipping, also at Tire Rack.

Tire Rack has the Michelin in 225/45ZR17.
The are Grand Touring Summer tires.
If you want All Season you have to go with the Continentals somebody mention earlier.

I am going to buy one of these two tires (Contis or Michelin). They seem to have the best reviews.
The Pirellis seem to have bad reviews and I want to stay away from Bridgestone for now.

The above link (if it works) shows all the runflats that tirerack has - this is max performance to grand touring. You should find something that you like from that list. Weird how the prices don't seem to have a rhyme or reason to it - price seems to have no correlation to performance.

Thanks a lot for the advice you guys have given here.
I will probably go for 4 of Continental all-season tires.

I love summer tires. But just feel lazy to swap tires before winter.
Plus, I got no place to store 4 tires in the small room.
