I have an 02 Cooper S running on Perelli run flats need to replace the fronts and am told i can not swap to normal non run flat tyres
Also if i stick with the runflats what would be an average price i am running on 17 inch wheels

Any one able to give me a clue

Whoever told you that is talking crap. There is nothing about the wheels that means you cannot run normal tyres. Some MINI's come with normal tyres (+tyre weld) from the factory, with exactly the same wheels ffs.

Take a look at Mini2 for lots of information on normal tyres. The current favourite is the Toyo, which should cost considerably less than a runflat.

If the garage concerned refuses to fit normal tyres, go somewhere else.
