Michelin Pilot RF Rant

These Michelin Pilot Sport Run Flats are the freaking worst tirse I've ever owned on any car driven on any day on any road in any state that I've ever driven on in this entire country.
What a pile of technology crap. These tires effectively transform my good shocks into blown out Monroe crap. These tires cause the suspension to work 3x as hard to stay planted on a bumpy corner, rattle my freaking teeth and make my 335i drive like high mileage GMC compact pickup from the 80s.

If I weren't yanking these off my new 335i and putting on my 330i, (which I'm selling. PM me if interested!) and I'd put them on Craigs for freaking FREE!!!!! I can't charge someone for this garbage.

Fine Print:
I drove my 335i for 2 weeks with the run flats and swapped them out with my P Zero Neros. I own both cars and both sets of tires. Pics here with.

They don't make that tire for several years now. It had good reviews back then, maybe it aged and needed replacement?

Anyway, if you are not used to RFT, they feel wrong, whatever the brand.

you are obviously pissed. I have Bridgestones RF's that came with my 328i and hate them too. I got a flat, couldn't repair it, had to replace it, cost me 400 freakin dollars. Moving on to regular performance tires pretty soon. I understand your frustration. Never ever buy RF's.
