Some of us prefer enjoying the performance of the car.

I am at 62k km (almost 40k miles) and I am on my forth set of tires.

Yep. That's why the Germans call All-Seasons... NO-Seasons... bc they are too much a compromise then don't do summer driving well nor winter driving.

You really need summer tires and a winter tire set(s). Which reminds me... it's almost that time for year to mount my winter tires!!

Well, your perspective is kinda skewed since tires tend to get harder and more noisy with time. And seven years is a lot of years. The most accurate comparison would be fresh RFTs vs fresh non-rfts.

That said, yes, run-flats are crap.

Lol! My latest RFTs were not 7 years old. I have been putting run flats on my car for the past 7 years since I bought the car new, and the latest RFTs I took off had less than 6000 on them when I changed them out to the MPSS.

Curious what were your previous tires? For comparison's sake.

Track day today. MPSS grip well on damp pavement but surprisingly better in rain and heavy rain.
