After 28,000 miles, I am about to replace the OEM Bridgestone RE 050A
run-flats on my Z4. Has anyone had any experience with the Continental
Conti SportContact 2 SSR run-flat tires? They are listed by Tire Rack as
30% cheaper with a tread wear rating of 280 vs. 140 for the Bridgestones.
Have you considered dropping run-flats altogether? Every Z4 owner
that's ever done it has RAVED about the improvement to ride and
handling that good regular tires gives - check www.z4um.com. I'll be
adding M3 replicas to mine, and I'm making the switch then.

Yes, I'm also considering the Goodyear F1 GS-D3 along with a 12v air
compressor & flat plugging kit. But if the run-flat Contis perform anywhere
near the (non run-flat) Sport2 tires, I would use them, as the price is
almost the same as the Goodyears.
