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.

ordering a 135i

is there an option to get regular tires as opposed to run-flat?
if not, is there a particular rim that would be more compatible with aftermarket regular tires?

You can install non-runflat tires on the factory rims.

Runflats are OK up to about 20K miles, then deteriorate afterwards during the 7K to 10K left on the tires. I'd just run them until then

I bet you can tear through the rears pretty quickly, then rotate, repeat, and replace all 4!
