Some folks had mentioned at one point using an X3 spare. Have you looked into it?

yeah, the 550i and the X3 use the same spare rim. same P/N. i was drilling down using the brake size as a guide and the 550i was the best choice that had an optional spare.

i ran into a problem getting the tire-- when not bundled in the set i found, the tire has a lead time of 6-8 weeks from bmw and tire rack. alone its 120-150 bucks for the tire.
