Tire recommendation?

Hello everyone. One of my tires seems to be damaged and the tech at Firestone told me RunFlat tires cannot be repaired. I have a 530i '05 model which comes with Dunlop SP Sport 01 DSST. I intend to replace all four since my alignment was messed up and the inner part of the tires is all eaten up (with only 15k mileage) but these tires go for $350 each. I was wondering what tires are good in terms of comfort and durability that are not RunFlat tires....in the $200~$250 price range.

Firestone recommended me Bridgestone Potenza RE050Awith 245/40R18 93Y rating (original ones are 93W) at $210.99 each with free repair if damaged and free replacement for unrepairable damage. Are these any good? Or what would you recommend?

Thanks in advance.

Sal329 is an unknown quantity at this point
That price for Bridgestones is a really good price. Is that mounted and balanced?
