Bought my 33xi used with 8,000 miles. The run flat tires are terrible - rough, jarring ride. Huge improvement when I switched to 18" BBS rims. Am worried I have a fuel pump issue

I love everything about this car no problem yet.

Hopefully I am replying to the post in 2012 (and ones from 2019)about the noisy tires. Just bought Michelin MXV4 ZP (zero pressure) run flats from a local discount tire to me in indianapolis IN for 150 per tire. They are so quiet compared to the prior Turanza El42s I can't believe it.
