I have been considering tire options but would like some feedback on what tires some people run.

I have a base model 2007 328i. I currently have run flat tires on it and was debating going to a more normal tire. I wasn't sure however if there is much of a noticeable difference in handling.

I am also trying to figure out if I should just go with all seasons or hold off for a bit and get winter tires. I do have a set of z4 wheels that I put on for autocross that has some 200 treadwear tires on them, but by the time next season rolls around I may need to replace those. I could just replace them with summer tires. I don't think I am good enough to make a difference in times between summer and autocross tires. Then i wouldn't have to change wheels for events. https://scrabblewordfinder.vip/  https://www.applock.ooo/  https://www.7zip.vip/

My other option would be to put either run flats or standard all season tires on it now and then replace my 200 treadwear tires whenever they wear enough.

I really have only ahd a flat tires a few times in my years of driving and usually can get the tire pumped up long enough to get to a shop. I am not sure if it is worth paying the premium for a runflat especially if I can get a smoother or better standard tire.

Ditch the run-flats first. Now, do you live where snow is enough of an issue that you might reasonably want winter tires? If yes, then get them, and put summers on the other wheels. If no, then, well, it's really up to you. But getting rid of the run-flats will make a considerable positive difference in how the car handles and (especially) rides.

In reply to WilfredBrax :

Go to non run flats.  I did on my F10 and noticeable improvement.  If you go all season Michelin A/S 3+ get my vote.
