Smile New Tires

I've had my Mini now for almost 4 years and ready to replace my Goodyear Eagle run flat tires. In the past I've used Michelin on my larger vehicles which I know are more expensive. However, the cheaper tires tend to have issues and don't last as long. Any suggestions and/or recommendations?

Where can they be located? I'm not familiar with that brand.

Default New Tires

I just installed Hankook Ventus V4s on my 08S. I love everything about them so far, except a little wobble I get from one of them that has to be dealt with. They are lighter and faster, stop shorter, handle well, and get better gas mileage than the Goodyear's. Expect better tread life as well. And what a pleasure it is going over a pot-hole! Fewer trips to the chiropracter, for sure. Cost was less than $500 installed. However, they are not run flats, so I may pay the price some day.
