    Hi all, Been enjoying my m340i for a few weeks now and what a joy it is to drive! I just wanted to ask if anyone has replaced their RFT with non runflats. I currently have the all season run-flats on the 19in wheels and looking to potentially switch them out for quieter/softer regular tires...
  2. Wheels and Tires
    I have a set of 4 tires from a 2018 BMW X5. Tires have approximately 3k miles on them. 3 of the tires are in absolutely perfect condition and 1 had to be plugged after 100 miles :( I live in NJ, 07746 and looking for 800 shipped or picked up for 750.
  3. X2 F39 (2017 - current)
    My '18 X2 has run flat tires (I had reasons for opting for RFTs over regular, but that is not relevant to this thread). This is my first experience with RFTs and I am wondering: What happens when I do get a flat/puncture? Obviously, they are run flats, so they're not going to deflate like...

  5. X1 F48 (2016 - current)
    Hi all, I've swapped out my runflats from my X1 F48 for some lovely new non-rfts and I'm so pleased with the results, despite the £900 Bill to change all 4! Anyways I have 2 used RFTs with around 5mm on both - Bridgestone Potenza 225/45/19 I'm relucant to just throw them away as there is...
  6. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    What specific make/model air compressor do you use with your F25 X3? I'm particularly concerned that a 12 volt compressor could blow fuses and therefore be worthless in an emergency. Also, which power outlet do you use with the compressor - the front cigarette lighter or the center console? Is...
  7. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I am getting close to replace my original set of RFT (Bridgestone Turanza). I have 23,000 miles on the car. Dealer offered to replace them for $1200+, and I told them I want to replace with non-RFT. Service rep said that they are not approved for my car and there will be problems with the...
  8. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    Is anyone running these tires on their X3? I am about ready to get rid of my OEM Goodyear LS2 RFT. Yes, I know these are non-runflat. I am aware of the tradeoffs and not interested in starting another RFT vs non-RFT thread. BFGoodrich G-Force Comp-2 A/S are #1 on tirerack and are...
  9. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    I returned the 2013 X5 35d 20" option with non RFT tires. It was a big oversight on my end. The tires on the SAV were Continental DWS with less than 10k on them since I use winter tires from November to March. They all had very good tread on them. The dealer charged me $1600 for new tires. Here...
  10. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    So, I just bought a 2012 535i xDrive and it currently has RFT. I did a lot of research and it seems that these tires were the main complaint for everyone. I'm wondering, should I change out to non-RFT before they give me a issue or just keep them? I live in NYC which has terrible roads with 18in...

    I have a 2009 328i with 16" Bridgestone Turanzas' ( RFTs). Time has come to replace these. Decisions I need to make are : > RFT or non RFT > Choice of tires - I have zeroed in on Bridgestone Potenza > Opting to install 17" wheels or not I'm sure this may have been discussed here before. Am...
  15. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    I have a 2012 750Li Xdrive (F02) and it has run flat tires and no spare. I see others who indicate that they do not have RFTs. My trunk does not seem to support a spare tire with a small space for tools but not a tire. Is there another configuration of the trunk that includes space for a spare...
  16. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    I have read the threads on switching from RFT to regular tires. But I have questions What Tires did people like or dislike (I have a 2.5i with 16") What pump and sealant did you get and there are combination kits, did you try those? Did anyone have a flat and how did it go or did anyone have...

    Four Bridgestone Turanza run flat tires, ER300 96Y, were just removed from a new 2015 BMW 535d with only 33 miles on the odometer. They are as close to new as you will find and are in perfect condition, 99.99% of the tread is present, no wear, no repairs, no defects or bubbles. M-Sport...

    Ok, my new 650ix Convertible is on its way to me from California. Super excited, but I'm ditching the the RFTs immediately. So I want to know from those who have replaced the RFTs with regular tires, what tires did you put on your cars and the pros and cons of those tires. My car has the 20...
  19. X1 E84 (2011 - 2015)
    I have a new x1 with run-flat tires with less than 1500 miles. Today my husband drove over a small screw while parallel parking on a street. I was standing on the curb and witnessed/heard the tire instantly deflate to point where it was very very visibly low. The screw is in the tread. It is...
