First, you don't state whether or not you have a spare. If you don't, then yes, you need run flats.

Second, you don't state your wheel size. Are you driving around on 17's, 18's, 19's or 20's?

This is a red flag to me, and I am a huge proponent of leasing. If you think a $600 to $700 payment is huge, you really shouldn't be leasing. Pay cash for a CPO and get on with your life.

Don't get snow tires. Get a dedicated winter set.

The default "all season" tires which come on most cars are a compromise: they are mediocre at everything. Consider this: You will almost...

The OP doesn't state if he purchased the car or is leasing it. If leasing, the car belongs to BMWFS so they may be kinda-sorta within their rights, particularly if there is some difference between a...
