Michelin Primacy HP RunFlats?

My recent F10 M Sport came with 19" staggered Michelin Primacy HP RFT.
Can't find any info on them, love or hate.
Keep them, replace them with non-run flats?
Any experience, good or bad?
Thanks

I think the tires suit the car rather well. They are grand touring summer tires. The F10 is more cruiser than canyon carver. If you are the type to want maximum performance, these are definitely not the tires for you. Michelin Pilot Super Sports seem to be the go to performance tire.

I agree these are not the best tires especially looking at the treadwear number. Mich Pilot Super Sports did me well on my last BMW so I will buy those when these wear out.

I have the same and have not had any problems. They are fine for the driving that I do here on the Big Island (Hawaii).

They are fine but don't have any other rfts to compare to
Just had to relace a rear one today (275/35 r19) due to a nail in it. 399
So not cheap!

$529 stateside...Yikes!

Have about 1600 miles on them and have begun to get use to them. Quiet and smooth riding so far...a little noisy on bad roads. I set my shocks to "Comfort" when most of the time for stop and go traffic so that's OK.
Compared to my older E60 with sport package which I did replace with non run flats (Conti Extreme DW), the F10 Michelins actually ride a tad quieter and more comfortably.
BTW...the Michelin Primacy HP runflat 275/19 is $529 (mounted, tax etc) at the local tire store if I had to replace it.
SO, despite my reluctance for the seamingly costly insurance, I decided to keep it anyway...a couple of punctures and possible bent rim in 5 years might just pay for itself.
Thanks all for your input!
