Hi, I've only just joined the forum so I hope I'm doing all this correctly. It might be a silly question but has anybody out there used non run flat tyres instead of run flat ones, I have noticed that a lot of BMW and Mini owners have changed to the ordinary type and say they are cheaper, longer lasting and provide a better ride, any ideas? Thanks

Welcome to the forum. However, the tyres on the RCZ aren't run flats. However, it is widely accepted that you'll receive a more comfortable ride on regular tyres. Of course grip, noise etc will vary tremendously between tyres and this is generally linked to price. Does that help?

Do you have runflats on your RCZ?

From what Ive heard, it could get a bit bouncy as the suspension is set up to with the run flats.

Welcome btw :greetings-wavingblue:

The ride on run flat tyres is awful. I speak from experience.

Hi, thanks for your replies, I have not even picked the car up yet from the dealer. The car is a second hand 4 year old 200 GT and I asked the dealer to replace the 2 front worn tyres, he told me that he would order and fit 2 run flats because they are standard fitment on this model, is this not the case and what have you got? Thanks. :helpme:

Continental sport contact 3s were the standard fitted tyres on the RCZ at the time. These aren't run flat so stop that guy before he gets them on the car!!!

Yet again, dealer incompetence :thumbdown: When will they ever learn? :twisted:

Avoid them like the plague crash in even the smallest pot hole and make the ride firm and jarring.

Mine will be 4 years on April 1 (this is not a joke!) :dance:
So it was first registered on April 1 2010 so will have been built a few weeks before then.
74.000 km on the clock and still going strong.

It was a demo car which explains the early first registration.
BTW back on topic, it came with Conti SportContact 3 tyres, one of which is still on the car now...

Mines 4 yrs on May 29th :) I did think mine must have been among the first registered, especially with it being a GT but came with 18" Wheels.

You are correct Abz. The original dealership demos were on 18" for some reason or other, can't recall why at the moment
