Has anyone experienced the significant tire sidewall bubble issue currently reported on the f10 form?
I have Goodyear Eagle LS 245/45 R19 run flats on all four wheels.
No issues here yet at 1500 miles.:)

I also have Goodyear Eagle LS2 245/45 R19 - all-season runflats on the 550ix GT. No problems yet at 3000 miles. The F10 board has me worried as well, though... As far as I understand, the Goodyears come with road hazard warranty in case we need it.

Don't hit curbs or potholes at speed, especially if you have a lower aspect wheel/tire combination.

Goodyear Excellence on 20 inch alloys - bubbled my front right at about 10K miles.
I have more or less accommodated myself to the idea that I will occasionally "bubble" a tire - it is not a question of "if" but of "when"....

I seem to be always on the verge of ditching the runflats for conventional tires as many recommend - this is an unsettled issue.

(Actually I am doing better with my GT than I did with my 335i which was equipped with
sport suspension and Bridgestones...)
