I have a set of Bridgestone Potenza 225/50 R16 for sale that came off my new (used) Z4. They have 6,700 km and in great shape.

I can supply pictures or viewings in Mississauga.

Cheers,
Carm

I still have these beautiful summer tires delicately wrapped up in my basement waiting for the right buyer who may be getting thin on their present run flats :D

Make a reasonable offer!

how much are these when new? how do you like them on street/rain?

The cheapest I have found for new at Mississauga Tire (BTW, much cheaper than the dealership) is $385 plus tax each. The run flats are typically more expensive.

I have the same tire (only 17") on my Z4 now and they handle great. I know a lot has been said about the run flats on many of the bulletins, but frankly, I can't tell much of a difference. I used to drive a Boxster with Z class tires and they felt softer. However, I attribute that to the Z4 may have a lower profile or stiffer suspension. Who know's, I'm not racing, but I do like the space of not having to carry a spare. Last thought I read in another bulletin, BMW designed the car with these tires in mind so who am I to say they don't know what they are doing (also, they are on the new Ferrari SuperAmerica!)
