X3 OEM tires

We got Primacy MXM4 245/55R17 with x328i. It does not have RFT marking on it.

I have to check for "ZP" marking in the morning, that's zero pressure. Otherwise it's difficult to tell RFT and non-RFT apart.

Some people are getting Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season RFT which is $40 cheaper per tire than MXM4.

All X3s sold in North America come with all-season run-flats except for those with the 19" summer performance tire upgrade.

I was told there were no upgrades/options for the rims/tires on my x3 35i m-sport order - hoping for the all season so I can use them this first winter and buy some m6 summer rims

The 2012's are different and now only come with all seasons without the option for summer tires.

Wow, I can tell within the first 50 ft if a vehicle has run flats. No matter how well they dampen the suspension its still like riding in a tank..
