I changed out the original runflats at a little less than 2,000 miles after tearing the inner sidewall liner of the tire. I put Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+s on it and I now have about 10,000 miles on them and they are still looking good and gripping just fine. I thought about the Michelin Pilot Super Sports, but they really are a summer only tire and I don't want to changeout tires every 6 months +or -. I definitely agree with Jeremy. You have to pay to play in your mini!
