While I'd look at this as an opportunity to GET RID OF THE RUN FLATS and get a decent set of tyres the only place I can think of in syd that won't rape you are the grey import places like taleb and stgeorge tyres.

I did, thank you and that's what they ended up doing... My tread is low though so I thought I would have to change them anyway but looks like its all good for the time being.. Cheers

I have heard a few people say that.... Is there that much difference???

I know this sounds silly but what happens if you get a flat with no spare tyre?

I used to have a modified 200sx so the BMW ride is smooth with the rft for me hehe

As pavo says, St George Tyre Service have good prices if you are after RFTs.
I recently bought two Conti 2s (225-45-17) for $420 the pair fitted and balanced - about half the price I'd found elsewhere - even worth a drive from Canberra to get them.
