Has anyone tried these tires? They are run-flats and available in the 20" size needed for my van. Would be nice to have run-flats but I wouldn't want to sacrifice much in the areas of steering response, tread life, etc.

I'm currently on factory Kumho TA-31s that will be down to the wear bars by 25K. The Kumhos have been good in every respect except tread life, and I'd like to stay as close to their performance profile as possible.

Thanks for the reply. I just did a search and found lots of complaints about Bridgestone Turanzas and Dunlops, but not much about Bridgestone Driveguards. Are you certain your Sienna had Driveguards?

I've heard a lot of complaints about harsh rides with run-flats on BMWs and Honda Odysseys. No personal experience.

I run the Driveguards on my BMW 335i. They are 35 and 40 profile. It would be hard to compare the BMW with the Pacifica, but I love them. Handling and traction is very good. I am a big fan of the run flats, since I have lost a few tires to D.C. potholes.

Did you end up buying the tires? If so, how do they perform?
