  1. X5 G05 (2019 - Current)
    Hi everyone Can anyone share their experience with switching to non-run flat tyres? My recently purchased like-new (< 500 miles) x5 40i has 20" Bridgestone run flats with regular steel suspension (no air suspension, no adaptive suspension). The fronts are 275/40/R20, the rears 315/35/R20 (edit...
  2. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I searched but did not find an existing thread on this, so if this has been gone over before, absolutely redirect me. I just had a BMW specialist (not a dealer) in Pittsburgh who is highly rated tell me that if I don't put BMW "star" rated run flat tires on my vehicle, it will burn up the oil...
  3. G20 (2019 - Current)
    Is anyone else having major issues with the 225/45/R18 Pirelli Cinturao P7 All Season Run Flat tires on their G20 330i? I've had my G20 for exactly one year, and in that time I have had to replace 7 (yes, SEVEN) tires due to blowouts, air bubbles, and one puncture. Only two were covered by BMW...
  4. 7 Series - G11 / G12 (2016 - current)
    In October I purchased a 2018 760 from a dealer in Massachusetts. I'm located in NY. This is my first 760 but not my first 7 series. I have had many, along with Bentleys, etc. All of my prior cars have had either run flat tires, or standard tires with a 50mph donut. I didn't think to ask if...

  6. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    i picked up a new lease on a 2018 BMW in June 2019 with a dealer stock car. The mileage was around 7000 miles already on the car. 1) It's 2020 July and I took my car into the dealership for oil change. I was informed the tires are bare and needs to be replaced. They are runflat tires. The...

  9. G30 (2017 - Current)
    My 540 came with the Pirelli Cinturato P7 run flats. As luck would have it, one of the tires developed a sidewall bulge with 6/32 tread remaining. The warranty that came with the tire provides for a pro rated credit for the life of the tire for road hazards. This was one nice feature specific...
  10. X5 F15 (2014 - 2018)
    We recently blew a run-flat tire on our 2015 X5. Those things aren't cheap! In any case, the tire shop we went to strongly recommended that we replace all four tires; not because the other three were too worn, but because we needed to keep a matching set to avoid damage to the AWD system...
  11. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    Does anyone have experience with this spare tire: http://www.bimmerzone.com/BMW_Performance_Spare_Tire/BIM-SST-F01-KIT.html ? Would it fit standing up in the trunk of a 750Li? Would a normal size tire/wheel fit in the forward part of the trunk? I have 19" wheels. My 2015 run-flats are almost...
  12. X5 F15 (2014 - 2018)
    I just leased a 2018 X5 Diesel. Great machine. I also opted for the wheel and tire insurance. Did I make a mistake? Sounds like the tires will be a problem.
  13. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    (2018 x3i) Does running on a doughnut spare, or a flat run-flat, cause excessive wear on the differential(s) in xDrive cars ? Seems to me the differences in circumference and rolling resistance would put a lot demands on the differential. Tom
  14. Wheels and Tires
    I have a set of 4 near-new Bridgestone S001 run flats in sizes 225 40 R19 (x2 front) and 255 35 R19 (x2 rear) for sale. Came off our 2014 X1 35i M sport which we bought used (17K miles) in mint condition and they'd put on new tires for the sale. We prefer non-run flat tires and swapped over as...
  15. X5 F15 (2014 - 2018)
    I have a new 2017 X5 35i, bought in November 2016, with just under 1,400 miles on it. It has Pirelli Scorpion Verde A/S Run-Flats on it. I had one tire with a slow leak that would go from 40 psi to 20 psi in 2 days and to 0 psi in 4 days. Pirelli's Road Hazard Warranty says their tires cannot be...
  16. General BMW Questions
    I know BMW has committed to run flats for most (if not all) of their models... My questions: 1) does ANY BMW model come with a full size spare? 2) does any BMW come with a space saver (donut) spare tire? 3) does any BMW that does NOT come with a full or space saver spare have the space in...
  17. F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
    Hi guys, this is my first post on here. I have bought a BMW 220D in the UK a while back and coming to changing the tyres as they have worn now. I have been trying to do some research into if I can swap my run flats (horrible!) over to conventional tyres?? BMW won't give me a straight answer but...
  18. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hello All, My first post at Bimmerfest. I have a 2013 535i which i bought it certified (new tires replaced by the dealer)in 2015 April with 32k miles on it. I am currently at 49k miles and my run flat 21inch rear tires are showing this and are worn it. My questions a) Is it ok to drive for some...
  19. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    Just noticed another tire blister the other day. This comes after just replacing another tire last month that got a huge gash on the inside shoulder. This will be the 4th tire I've replaced due to blistering, not counting the first one I noticed and had replaced when I bought it not quite 3...
  20. Wheels and Tires
    I have 4 brand new M performance 19" Light Alloy Double-Spoke Bi-Color wheels with all-season run-flat tires from a brand new 2016 BMW 7 series. We ordered different wheels to be put on the car, and these came off the car from the factory. They are brand new, unused, and are fitted with the...
