New X3 owner - feedback on a couple of items

Hi:
Just starting leasing an X3 after renting one from Sixt for a trip to the mountains. I would like feedback on a couple of items:
1. Any advice on a bike rack for mountain bikes on this vehicle?
2. Thoughts about runflat tires, and keeping or replacing?
Thanks in advance.

Congrats on the new acquisition!

Regarding the rack, someone has an OEN one for sale here. Should fit yours.

I had an OEM crossbar set with INNO fork lock III racks for my bikes and an INNO fairing.

#2 - The run flats simply suck. We got ours last August and in October when we put the non run flat winters on my wife said the the summers are not going back on. Night and day difference.
