If they have to patch the tire then they have to get rid of the slime which is dirty and annoying. Throw the guy doing it a 20 and it should be fine. The tire shop didn't care when I took mine in but...

If the area is that dangerous you'll drive on a non run flat as well. Might end up damaging the rim, but then how often are you in an area like that.

I can ask him. He's not exactly car savvy so he just went with an indie mechanic. But I believe he replaced the whole pack, likely the spark plugs too.

I think he was getting a CEL though.

Love our X1. And if you want to drive a BMW you'll appreciate the extra power of the 28i engine in the X1 vs the 20i on the 320. Plus the more old school design such as the hydraulic steering on the...

Wow I haven't heard of tire shops shaving tires, but I guess it makes sense.

I would also look on craigslist for the same tires and buy one or two. This way you can go with whatever tires you want...

Yeah I heard about the wear, but assumed the the xDrive was designed to work with the factory sticker pressures. I'll try going more square, see if it changes anything
