Default Run flat tires

Can I order a new Q50 with regular tires?

It's up to the local dealer. Some say they will swap the run flats out. Mine didn't. I did replace the 19" run flats with Michelin A/S 3's and they are about 674% better. Ask you dealer

No, you can't order a Q50 with non-RFT's from the factory.

My understanding is that RFTs are standard on the Q50 and the only thing they ship them with. If the dealer decides to help you out in any way, that is on the dealer. Mine refused.

Don't think so. In my case I bought a set of 19" Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus
High Performance 245/40R19 tires from Costco for $288.99 each. Also bought a set of OEM Infiniti rims on e-bay. All this to replace the 17" run flats that came on my pre ordered Q50 premium hybryd. (not the S version)
The dealer in my case had no clue so I took it upon myself to do all this. After all that I had to buy a spare OEM tire on ebay because the dealer has no clue on ordeing a spare tire package. (much less trunck space in the Hybyrd now with spare)
The car with these tires runs super quite, & smooth as silk on the road.
Check out pic of my car on gallery with caption, "First day at the beach".

My dealer swapped for free (Ask them about it as soon as or prior to your purchase) for some Michelin A/S 3, but like others mentioned, some dealers will and others will not.

Be careful if you lease your car. Some people on this forum have indicated that you must return your car with the run flat tires so swapping is not an option. You have to buy new tires and store the old ones until you return the leased vehicle.

Where do you put the spare in your hybrid? If it does fit in the trunk, I assume you have no plans for a vacation.

What have you noticed that is different (ride wise) with the Michelin A/S 3 vs the 19 run flats? Are the Michelin A/S 3 cheaper than the stock tires?
