Just bought an E91 2007 325xi, in the trunk, under the cover i don't see a place for a spare tire, just a random hole, what was supposed to be used for? Is it spare place for luggage?
Is the second cover specified to be removed by hand, because there is something like plastic bolts holding it...

I really hoped to trade my current X3 for a 2018 model and to finally get a piece of mind from having a spare during trips far into the woods.
My last hope is to purchase the spare tire kit...
New guy to Bimmerfest, first posting:
I can't stand run flats and intend to replace with regular tires as soon as I wear them out or they fail.
I'll want to add a compact spare.
1. Is there a tray kit and wheel/tire combo that will fit under the trunk floor?
2. Is it possible without...

How do you properly dispose of your old tires when you DIY change your tires at home?
Of course, if you have a tire shop replace your tires, they dispose of them properly for you; but what do those of you who change your own tires at home do to properly dispose (or repurpose) them?

Today i backed into a rock and it chipped a chunk off the spare tire holder that is under the car. The piece holds the tire and im not quite sure of its actual name and would like to see so i know how much it would be to replace it. If any one knows where to order this piece or its name that...
Hi guys, I am a BMW newbie, I have a 2008 E64 and want to switch out of RFTs.
Thinking about getting hold of an extra front wheel+tire, and use it a spare.
Does anyone know if this would work?
Specifically - if I had a flat on the rear (which I think is more likely) can a front spec tire go...
More tire discussions since we have been running low these last few weeks... :rofl:

I'm selling this BRAND NEW spare which I know fits perfectly for a 2004 330XI, which I purchased from Leatherz here, for $290:
From their site...
If anyone is interested please email me. I have pictures available as well. Spare has never been used so the rim is in mint condition. Tire is brand new as well. Purchased my 2001 525i from the dealer last year and the car had no spare tire so they ordered me a brand new one.
I am planning to purchase non-RFT for my 2008 328i coupe, and along with that purchase a spare tire kit.
I see i can buy one online like this one.
However, if i can purchase one from a local person cheaply, i'd...
My 330i sat in my garage wearing its new Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 slippers for a few days while I awaited delivery of my jack/compact spare package from Bavarian Autosport. Now that this "insurance package" is consuming 40% of my trunkspace (instead of being nestled in the spare compartment...
