Smile Run flats 2005 cooper s - 4th May 2018, 06:08 PM

Had the run flats swapped today. Went from 205/45/17 to continental 215/45/17. I cannot believe the difference, itís like a new car, no more rattles. Best mod so far

Itís one of those marmite situations. Pleased you like them but we prefer runflats for safety reasons and it has already saved us from being stranded in a remote location.
