Lightbulb Regular tires for the 19" 35IS wheels?

I really love the way the 19" 35IS wheels look but I do not want to have to replace the run flat tires before my lease is over. I'm planning to get a 2 year, 20k mile lease and I do not want to have to pay for a set of tires when I turn the car back in after the lease.

What would be a good solution to this? Can you just request all season tires instead of the run flats?

You cannot get any tires except the RFTs that are installed at the factory. However, you can do what I did. Order a set of tires from TireRack, have them delivered to your dealer and have them swap out the tires at delivery. Then, when it's time to turn your car in, have the RFTs put back on the car.

In my case, I bought the car so I sold my RFTs and that paid for my new tires.

That's what I did for my 335is, I got a set of Michelin Pilot Super Sport at 300 miles and the RFT's are in my garage.
