E82 / 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 either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

Exactly What Tires are Installed on a 2012 128i Convertible?

I've been searchin online for days trying to figure out exactly what the factory installed tires might be on a base model 2012 BMW 128i convertible. Are they all-season? And what manufacturer please. I plan to use snow tires each winter, but being up in the mountains I am hoping they don't come with summer performance tires or I'll have to use snows nearly year 'round.

A quick glance at the OEM section of Tire Rack for a base 2012 shows either: Michelin Primacy HP; Turanza (Bridgestone) EL-42; or Bridgestone Blizzaks;

All 205/55/R16 RFT

Unless ordered with one of the sport packages, the 128i comes with OEM all-season run flat tires. In addition to the ones StrongArm gave, the Continental ProContact SSR s have also been used as OEM for the 128i base model.

I assume they're all all-season tires then, right? (Except for the Blizzaks)

Yes, all season tires are the norm for most BMWs sold in North America.

Our 2012 128i (non-sport) was shod with Good Year RFTs.
