I live in rural California- RFT availability here is app 4-10days! I elected to purchase the BMW jack kit, (app $150) a reconditioned spare wheel-$300 and two new Brigestone tires. Put the new tires on car-used the best RFT for the spare and placed it in the trunk. When my RFT are worn-I will replace with regular tires. The wheel and tire does take considerable space-but there wasn't really much usable room there to start-I consider it a worthwhile addition. I now have a spare that I can use with no distance or speed limitations. The hard top stows in the trunk OK! BMW should rethink this problem-or reduce pricing to reflect missing wheel and tire!
