Mein Auto: 2012 535 xi GT
My 19" tires are in good shape after 8 months and 11K miles. One of them (front right) was replaced around 7K when I hit something at about 85MPH on 95 in the DC area one night at 10PM. I'm told the rim took a slight bend but not enough to impact anything. The new tire balanced with no issues. I am happy to have the RFTs because I hit something and kept going there were 10-15+ other cars on the side of the highway with flat tires. With that being said, I will still consider replacing with non RFTs just because I believe the ride would be immensely smoother.

I have made the 700 mile trip from CT to NC 3-4 times now and I love the fact that I have yet to see another GT! What a pleasure to drive this GT on a long road trip.
