A couple of questions in case anyone is an expert.

370Zs (and 350Zs) are supplied new with Bridgestone tyres that are specific for that car. Is it legal to fit tyres that are specific to say an Aston Martin or Merc onto a Nissan. Bearing in mind that most tyre fitters only have one tyre from other tyre manufactures for all makes of car.

Secondly if it is legal to fit say Aston Martin spec tyres to a Nissan can I fit run-flats even though Nissan never fitted them?

Why is modern life so complicated? Don't get me started on oil or antifeeze - a lot of that is manufacturer specific now.
