Mein Auto: 330i w/ M Package
Smile Greetings from Panama City, Panama! + Tire Questions

Hey guys!

I just bought a 2006 330i with the M package (My first bimmer) and today the computer indicated that one of the tires was losing pressure. I took it to the dealership and they noticed a tear in the tire. So they recommended me to buy a new one as soon as possible and to replace the 3 other tires because they are low on tread. Currently I have two 225/45R17 91W's on the front and 2 255/40R17 94W's on the back. All four are Pirelli Run Flats.

The weather here in Panama is as follows: 3 months of intense heat and 9 months of almost daily rain. There are also quite a bit of potholes and bumps in the road, but also some nice straight away's without a single crack in the road. Being safe is currently my #1 concern as I am still learning to drive this beast of a car!

What do you guys recommend? I don't really need runflats or Pirelli's.

Thanks guys, I appreciate your help.

Thanks Again,

Runflats should just get another wheel from a wrecking yard to use as a spare. Go on the Tirerack`s website, enter your car`s model info, and see all the different tires available for your car. There are also tons of customer reviews so you can see how others like them. Happy Hunting !
