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.

I second that. OP, if it's the cost of RFTs, the other option is to go non-RFT...I'm talking about a complete set. Had I not sold my 135i, that was what I was going to do when the time came to replace the tires. I had replaced 2 rear tires due to blow-outs and the difficulty of finding the PZeros coupled with the cost had me thinking in that direction. For what it's worth, I was going to go with Toyos.

The OP might be looking for a set with tread for a lease turn-in. If his are under spec a dealer could hit him for big bucks to satisfy the turn-in T's & C's of his lease.

Thanks
If you're really needing used RFTs you want to be very careful to confirm that a used RFT was NEVER NEVER run at "0" psi (Flat). Here's a place that sells used tires; I DO NOT KNOW ABOUT THEM OR THEIR BUSINESS PERSONALLY - So this is not an endorsement. As with any used product/item purchase < BUYER BEWARE >!!

Too bad, I saw this a couple of days after tossing four stockers with 18k on them.
