Michelin Winter Runflats

Anyone have personal experience with either of these two Michelin winter RF tires?

LATITUDE X-ICE XI2 ZP
http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....e+X-Ice+Xi2+ZP
LATITUDE ALPIN LA2 ZP
http://www.discounttire.com/buy-tire...in-la2/p/25461

I know that, in general, runflats have a harsher ride than their non-RF counterparts. But given that winter tires usually ride soft to begin with, I'm curious whether any of these two runflats would be tolerable in comfort?

I've used XI2 RFT on my 435GC. They were great.

I think LA2 is for a soft, European kind of winter.

To be sure, you didn't find the ride to be overly firm? Would love the peace of mind of not having to immediately deal with a flat in the middle of winter so long as ride comfort is bearable.

For me they were too soft, like any other winter tyre.
