Mein Auto: 2008 x5
First off, thank you one and all for the info here, I've learned more about my X5 tonight than I have in the past 2 years I'v owned it!

Now regarding tires:
I asked my dealer about changing to non-run flats (since I have a spare) and I thought he was going to have a coronary!
He went into a tirade of how "the suspension is tuned for RFT's, you'll ruin the car's ride with non-run flats", etc etc...
Then i did the unthinkable and said, "but I read on the internet that....." I think I actually saw a little foam forming around his mouth.

Is there any validity to his claim regarding suspension tuning and the possibility of poor handling with non-run flats?
Thanks everyone.
