WTB Bridgestone Potenza 225/40/18

Does anyone have a single RFT 225/40/18 70-90% thread. Willing to pay shipping. I recently bought 2 for rears and 1 for front. Now I need one more (front).

Anyone out there? I know there is a lot of negative feedback on these tires I but so far I ve had good success here in San Diego... Thanks cheers.

Hi. I have 2 of them with approx. 70% remaining tread, but I want to sell both at the same time. Let me know if that works. Thanks!

Dump them and buy non RFT's ! MY 335i Xdrive came with RFT's and I have 44K miles on my car and I've had to replace the run flats twice because of hitting a pot hole which caused a bulge on the side wall and caused the tire to vibrate terribly. Since the BMW is all wheel drive I had to replace all 4 tires on each occasion ! So Merry Christmas to me ! I am not replacing the tires again, but this time I am going with NON Run Flats ! I'll buy a jack, portable air compressor, and a can of fix it flat and keep them in the trunk !

Good for you man. I really havent had any issues with them to be honest. On the contrary, Ive had 2 punctures in the last year or so and RFT saved me. Otherwise I would have called the tow truck 2 times this year plus all the hussle along. not good!

Roads here in San Diego are not that bad. Also, most of my driving is freeway so no issues there. So that being said its a good thing that most people dont like them as I get to buy them for cheaper these days...

I still need one more to complete all 4.
