  4. Pirelli Run Flat Road Hazard Warranty Gutted?

    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...
  5. Do I really need to replace all four tires???

    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...
  6. Spare tire?

    7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    Does anyone have experience with this spare tire: ? 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...
  7. Run Flat Tires & Wheels - Insurance

    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.
  8. Running on a "doughnut" bad for differential

    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

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...
  11. Spare tire questions

    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...

    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...
