Just about to change our run flats

I'm just about to change out runflats to non runflat 18" tyres
(Bridgestone RE050A runflat to Goodyear F1 GSD3 standard).

Can anyone who has done this confirm that the ride is less harsh?

I find the runflats really harsh on some UK road surfaces, and I just want to take the edge of the ride. It's definitely cheaper. For four standard tyres, it will cost me the price of two runflats with a higher tyre wear rating.

I can tell you the goodyears are some of the softest (most comfortable) riding tires in the max performance tire category i've ever used!
