Great maintenance on the autobahns, led me to believe that I would have no problem in the states. I moved to Kansas, where 80% of the roads are atrocious, and even worse after a hard winter. This is where my wagon developed the whopped rear-right tire. The roads in the states definitley beat them up. Thank goodness for roadside assistance. I did research for a good high-performance all season Non run-flat tire on Tirerack for my car, and never looked back. Run-flats are just too expensive to pay for on rough roads across the country. I hope my luck continues. Good luck. I am sure there are smarter people at the dealerships in your location showing up all the time.
I like your optimism, regarding service people working for BMW. I in no way want to belittle their expertise, however some speak without thoroughly researching the problem at hand, and give the others a bad rep. Rough roads, and the predisposition noted by some F10 owners for their RFTs to develop 'bubbles' (can't think of the right word right now), were the reason I originally inquired whether others went with tire insurance for 19 in RFTs in F07s.
