E82 / E87 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by a naturaly aspirated inline 6 in the 128 or the turbo twin power inline 6 rocket sled 135.

Dunlop Tires on 135i ED

Hi all. I picked up my 135i with M Sport Package last week at BMW Welt and noticed that BMW placed Dunlop tires on instead of Bridgestone. Has anyone had a similar experience and are there any views regarding Dunlop vs. Bridgestone runflats from a quality and ride perspective?

I picked my 135 m-sport at ED in January and got the Dunlops also. It's the luck of the draw, only problem is that most dealerships do not carry them so if you have to get it replaced they have to order it.

My dad's 335i has the bridgestones and the rear tires last about a summer. I have the dunlop tires on my 1 and they handle comparably but much better tread wear. That being said, they are still run flats.

Just took US delivery of 135 cab -- they had Dunlops. No opinion as of yet, but the ride felt good.

Only Bridgestone & Dunlop made the OEM for 215/40/18 & 245/35/18, Michelin never offers on these two sizes.
