Tyre recommendations

Hi All, need to get the tyres on my E93 replaced soon. Any recommendations for run flats?

18" rims, 225/40 front and 255/30 rear.

Stay far away from run flats. Unless you are looking for decreased ride quality, bad steering feel and increasing your unsprung weight

FYI, our cars did not come with run flats.
I don't think anyone here has put run flats on this car.
It would be a HUGE waste.

Yes. My wife had an E90 335 with runflats, but our M cars never had them.
OP may want some runflats, but doubt anyone here would know anything about runflat tires for our car. That would be a terrible decision.
