After wearing out the first set of Run Flats, two weeks ago I switched over to a conventional tire.

Bought a set of Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (205/40/18) and a Dynoplug roadside kit. Great tires! Highly recommended. Hopefully I don't ever have to test the plug kit but at least I'm trying to be prepared.

If you don't track the car or drive hard a lot in technical twisties the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3s are hard to beat. I had them on my R56 JCW and loved them. They are a great tire with good gripe and marvelous ride. It changed the feel and noise level dramatically.

Michelin Pilot Super Sports are not all season tires as the OP has asked fro recommendations for.

OP, when you say softer, do you mean more comfortable ride?

Or softer, stickier compound all season?

17" or 18"?

If you have 17", hands down Michelin Pilot Super Sports 205/45r17. Get them while you can

4 seasons? What about the MICHELIN CROSSCLIMATE?
I will put them on my little 99hp toyota.
Have you now tried the CrossClimate? Do you like them? I am tempted by them as south of the M4 winters average out at 8 or 9 days ice and slush. I used to have winter tyres for my R56 and didn't have more than a few days a year where I really needed them.
