tire and wheel protection

I bought a 528I series last year with a warranty of tire/wheel for five years. I recently found out that my car doesnt come with run flat tires ! They are traditional tires and without spair tire. I was told by another BMW dealer that this is unacceptable?

If you purchased your 5-series New or as a Certified Pre-owned, it was required to have run flat tires. If it wasn't a CPO, or if it was bought at a non-BMW dealer, then the run flats aren't a "requirement." Maybe the last customer didn't like the run flats and swapped them out, and the dealer didn't have to do anything if it wasn't CPO or a BMW dealer.

It all starts with the model year you bought and from whom.
