Just curious, if you don't get standard RFT, then you must get a spare wheel right?
I did not see a space for spare wheel in any U.S. X1 videos, but I am willing to buy 1 after ditching the original RFT's. If I can't fit a spare wheel somewhere, then I will have to choice but to be doomed to a life of RFT's.
Fix-A-Flat. I will probably run the OEM runflats until they're used up, get damaged by one of our famous Michigan potholes, or until I simply can't stand the compromised ride any longer, then I'll replace them with conventional tires, put a couple cans of Fix-A-Flat in the car, and hope for the best.
