: First winter for F01's: wheels and tire decisions

08-15-2009, 06:43 AM
The first winter will be facing the F01's in a few months, and wondered who has decided on wheels, tires, and TPMS for the new 7-series (dealer OEM vs third party).

Doesn't really matter.. I don't think OEM tires are available for snow. Third Party will have to do. Wheels can stay probably unless you put custom ones.

Apparently the package for winter tires includes style 234 rims and Dunlop 3D run flats (245/50 R18). Other tire options may be subsequently available. This rim/tire package with TPMS around $800.

I have 4 brand new Dunlop SP Winter sport M3 snows on 18" rims that I bought last year for the 750. I have been using these for many years with excellent results in NY. Can I use them on the new 750 xli? Never had run flats or X drive. Any comments on using these snow tires with x-drive and whether there's a sensor that will won't be compatable with a non run-flat tire? :dunno:
