My question - will the spare tire kit work with both wheel/tire setups? I also read that using different tire sizes on an XI model can harm the transfer case - is that true??!! TIA

yes, running different sizes across axles it can. but the outside diameter of all the wheels you list should be the same.

the spare tire is for TEMP use only.

the E60 XI model that this is normally equipped on can have either 225/50/17 (25.9") or 245/40/18 (25.7") tires. the temp spare runs at 25.5"

although i make no guarentees, you should have no problems running the spare for a short period of time.

a 25.5" tire does 820 revs per mile.
a 225/45/17" tire does 837 revs per mile
2.1% difference, which should not present a problem for short term use.

thanks for the quick reply.

One more question. The 18" come with staggered wheels/tires: 225/40/18 front and 255/35/18 rear. Will the spare work on both front and rear?

yes, there are no changes made between cars with 16-19" wheels, the tire aspect ratio is altered to make the rolling diameter consistent.

for an E9x, its about 25.1" across 16-19" wheels.

i tried to lash it to the roof via a ratcheting nylon strap. took up too much space so it went back into the corner of the trunk.

I placed my order and the next day I was informed "on national backorder". What kind of delay are we talking about guys? Hope it's not too long I can't imagine driving a non-run flat without a spare!!

They were nice enough to send me cargo net separately. Dang, that net is so useful, love it.

even though your car has 16s, yes, it should fit, as the rolling diameter is the same, and your brakes are smaller than the 335i's.

Here is what I want from BMW... a small temporary aluminum spare. My Porsche Boxster has a lightweight aluminum wheel with a small temp tire (size 105/95-17) that weighs just 21 pounds (all inclusive!). It is about 5-inches thick and uses 60 psi of air...

BMW could make an 18" version that would fit all of their E90/E91/E92/E93 models... and the E60 5 Series, if I am not mistaken.

Come on BMW!

they make an E9x spare, aluminum wheel, 17X3.5 ET8 with a 125/80/17 tire....
unfortunately, its blocked from US dealers to order. i've tried, and they cannot order it.

that one would be about the same dimensions as the porsche wheel you describe, about 4.5" thick, and lighter.

That is perfect!

What is the price in Europe? I've got a cousin over there.
