Mein Auto: 2013 535i
First BMW

Thanks to this forum I now have my first BMW. I was able to take advantage of the end of year 24month lease deals. Its a black/cinnamon 535i w/premium, technology, Msport, convenience packages, premium hifi, rear view camera, PDC and rear sunshades.

The car came with Dunlap SP Sport Maxx runflats. Does anyone have any experience with these tires. Will they last 20000 miles in south Florida? Being its a lease I'm considering removing them at 5000 or so miles and putting on non runflats. I'll then reinstall the runflats when I turn in the car. Any opinions on this?

Congrats! The 24mo lease was a pretty special offer.

Sorry, I don't anything about the Dunlops.

I can't speak to the Dunlop's, but this is EXACTLY what I am doing. Getting better rubber fro driving and putting the RFT back on for lease return.

I have the Dunlops. At 13,500 they still have between 5-6/32nds tread left on them.
