O.k. I'm in a dilemma - What would you do ? Back in the fall of last year I replaced the rear tires (Pirelli run flat ) after which, only to discover I needed to replace the fronts. As a lot of you already know - the front replacements ( Pirelli run flat 235/45 19 ) are no longer available . Pirelli stopped making that size .(?) Now do I 1. Go to a size up or a size down ? Both of which are available from Pirelli. But which size ? 2. Or , go with a Pirelli non run flat ? This would be a different tire pattern. How would the different pattern affect the performance ? Had I known then what I know now I would have gone to another tire manufacture that met the original tire spec's.

I could no longer find matching sets of run flats for the V. I have run same as rear on all four corners for a while. I would occasionally get an error but not often. I have been running non-run flats for years now in original sizes without issue.
