Tire ##### 10

discovered tears in both rear tires and a bubble in the front right. Michelin's are on back order so they are going to put on 4 new pirelli's .. 10 tires in 16k miles all from pot holes and rough roads.. Glad I opted for the wheel & tire insurance..

Runflats are the worst, yes u have tire insurance but this will be an ongoing problem...Shame on BMW for making all their models standard with runflats (smh).
