Mein Auto: 11 550i
I agree. A major problem with run flats is that minor repairable problems necessitate total replacement. On my 550i the tires are over $420 installed. There has to be way for BMW to join the rest of the world and come up with standards for repairing RFT tires with fixable issues. Independent tire dealers repair RFT routinely. I do not understand why BMW will only consider tire replacement.
