Tire Recommendations for daily driver

My TPM sensor went off last week and I got the tire re-inflated and the other day the TPM sensor went off again. I think it means I need new tires.

I need a good all around tire for a daily driver. From the looks of it, everyone loves the PSS. (Pilot Super Sport?) I do not drive that aggressively so do not need the absolute best most expensive tires. I want a set that are all season, will last reasonably well and are priced not super high.

Also, what do people do without RFT nor a spare? I know there is AAA but I just feel better knowing I can get myself to a garage.

I saw a few months ago that you can buy a spare tire kit (was an option apparently from BMW Europe) FYI.

This question would probably be better asked and answered on the regular 1 series wheel and tire forum. All 1M coupes come without run flat tires, without spares, and with tire repair kits in the boot (which are available from your local BMW dealer). They also come with summer tires mounted as standard, so you'll get few opinions on all-season rubber.

I've had Michelin Exalto and Pilot Sport on several cars (Audi & BMW). Once my OEM Bridgestone run flats need replacing I'll be putting on Pilot Sport. They are excellent for normal driving conditions. You can't go wrong with these tires.

I have a 120DMsport 2009 model and is fitted with 18" wheels i have a skip now and again like a flip when driving the car feels unstable at times, have been to the dealer who said it was all down to the tyres depth of which some were +/- 6 mm which i changed all the tyres BMW then said they do not recomend anything below 4 mm this stopped the unstabilty for a while but still there at times it is like the DTC is on/off when you go over even the cats eyes in the road.
what tyre size should be on the car to suit my 18" rims
fitted are : Rear 245/35/R18 Front 215/40R18 please also confirm PSI

I picked up some Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 for my vert recently. They are not run flats. The reason I chose these was cause they are reviewed fantastic on this site and others, they have good tread wear. I use the car as a daily driver and don't need extreme traction, but they are still very good. And the final reason was cause of Michelin's promise plan.
