bridgestone dueler runflats

Okay- these are not great tires- i kind of get that. They came with the 2014 x5- the dealer put them on.

Brand new- seem to be adequate- i had Duelers as OEM on my subaru fxt- replaced them with mich primacy/premier- much stickier. Not great snow tires, but never stuck in some nasty Chicago snows...

And I kind of lean towards off road and snow utility. Though I admit that I drive a minor % of this.

But seriously what am I missing, performance wise?

And what is the alternative to runflats? Put a compact flat in the rear sump?

I'm new to the BMW x5- I love it so far, but i l know there is a lot more potential...

Not even sure what I am asking...

Perhaps: what is good performing tire with winter capability? And is it worth it to replace the Bridgestone Duelers?

Just looking for thoughts/ideas/experiences- i know this is a 'loaded' question.

Agree, there are many threads covering this.
I recommend searching for “conti dws06” , “continental dws 06” , or any variant with dws06.
