Ofcourse we had to buy new tires too.

I can not believe the hazard associated with this car. Why is BMW not doing anything about this? These cars are EXTREMELY dangerous to drive. So many people are getting their rims cracked with these RFT tyres on the 330 BMWs. There is even a facebook page now.

I was wondering if anyone has had any luck talking to BMW about this. I did file a report with BMW customer relations, and have yet to hear back from them.
So what's a 'baggle' already? Only a goy would say such a thing. I'm sure you meant bagel.
I've never heard of a BMW OE rim splitting like this!
