non runflats

looking for non-runflat goodyear tires for 128i sport with the 17in wheels what do you guys recommend. I have spacers and want a performance tire that is going to last more then the under 10K miles i get on these runflats now.

Why buy Goodyear tires? If that is really what you want, I would go look at tire rack. Regardless of brand, they are a good place to look. I put on the latest Michelin performance tire, I think it is abbreviated PSS. It has a 300 tread wear rating which is at least higher than the RFT 220 that I took off. I also put the same size on the front so I can rotate. Fronts last longer for me. The front wheels are 0.5 inch narrower on my 2009 sport suspension 128i vert. But they will take the same 225mm wide tire. My Michelin's are nice tires. Noticably more stick than the RFTs + more quiet + cost less. I carry a compressor and plugging kit in case I ever get a flat.
