Don't replace tires at the dealer. Just about any tire center will sell you the same tires for less.

for another 300 bucks you could buy four new tires at any good tire store. That is an unreal price for one tire

That's why they call them stealers! Where did the screw enter the tire? Can they patch or plug it (if it's not in the sidewall or on the outside of the tread)? If it's an '08, it's a runflat, correct? If so, forget the patch/plug idea. I hate runflats for this reason, can't repair them. Good Luck.

Wait a sec....

I just got a 2010 X5d with Michelin RunFlats ("ZP")s

The car came with a disc, detailing the tire warranty. The tires have a WARRANTY against becoming un-repairable due to a road hazard:

"The ZP Assurance Plan
In addition to the limited warranty coverage described above, Michelin
Self-Supporting Zero Pressure (ZP) tires also carry Michelin's exclusive ZP
Assurance Plan.
Most tire punctures can be repaired if the puncturing object is removed at
the first sign of the tire air loss. No tire, regardless of its quality, is
indestructible and even a self-supporting zero pressure tire can be
rendered unserviceable by road hazard injury. If this happens, Michelin
will replace your tire under the same terms and conditions described in
"HOW REPLACEMENT CHARGES ARE CALCULATED.'' This ZP Assurance
Plan is not a warranty or protection against all road hazard injuries. It is an
added value to the consumer which provides for replacement of tires that
come out of service as the result of conditions not covered by the limited
warranty.

HOW REPLACEMENT CHARGES ARE CALCULATED
MICHELIN SELF-SUPPORTING ZERO PRESSURE (ZP) TIRE
If a Michelin Self-Supporting Zero Pressure (ZP) tire becomes unserviceable
due to a workmanship or materials condition or a road hazard injury during
the first 24 months of service or before 50% of the tread is worn, whichever
occurs first, Michelin will furnish a comparable new Michelin Self-
Supporting Zero Pressure (ZP) replacement tire at NO CHARGE. No charge
will be made for demounting/mounting/balancing, but the consumer will be
responsible for paying any other dealer charges and applicable taxes."


I may not be paying attention...but I would wonder if the OP has a warranty claim with the tire MFG... (and I could see the BMW dealer being a wienie and not mentioning this...)

Good catch. Maybe the dealer "accidentally overlooked" that point. I don't own a car with runflats so I didn't know about that warranty. Good information to store away in my head when we start using runflats.

What is wrong with people...dropping into a community with a "HELP!!!!!" request, and then being so rude as to not check back?

Is it a bimmerfest/bimmerforum thing or what?
