Thats not true as I recall. Michelin had a policy for a period of time for their ZFT tires. Someone else may have as well. It was discussed here a few times.

OP, you need to read the policies on the CD that should have come with the manuals/in the glove box.

Is the tire ruined??? If it is just a simple puncture, DONT DRIVE ON IT, bring it to "not a BMW dealer" and they can patch it. (Provided it is in the 'face' of the tread, between the two major tread grooves.)

If you need a new tire, tirerack- one tire if you are over 50% tread, probably 2 if under. OR, ebay, and get a matching '50-60%' for $50. Run that until you need new tires all around


Keep it as simple as possible...but no simpler.
