Jay, this is the x1 forum so I assume he's asking about an F48. You can factory order with non run flats and he's wondering what BMW ships with their cars when you order the car that way (on the 18" wheels)Still don't know what you're looking for! :dunno:
Brand and specification for 18 inch wheel for what car? BMW models all have different OEM wheels and the tire brand they use may also vary from model to model.
BMW is not likely to label a non-runflat tire as OEM if all their new cars are coming with runflats.
Not quite on your own.. you either use the supplied sealent gunk & compressor, or press the SOS call button and arrange for the cavalry to arriveI wasn't aware that you could order factory non-runflats. I guess then you're on your own if you get a flat?
Us Americans are rugged individualists. So, we'd.... wait for it... put the spare tire on.Not quite on your own.. you either use the supplied sealent gunk & compressor, or press the SOS call button and arrange for the cavalry to arrive
My UK spec F48 X1 came with 18inch wheels fitted with OEM non run-flat tyres. They are Bridgestone Turanza T001 225/50 R18 99W - though I think there may be better alternatives. Not sure if they're available in the US.
True 'dat. The non-RFT, spare tire thing is what put the X1 on our list for the next Frauwagen. But, she liked the X3 better. I put the kabash on the X3 because of RFT's and no hole to put a spare in. We're waiting for the next X3, hoping BMW really has come to their senses. The new 7 Series also offers a spare, but not non-RFT's. BMW's published a parts list so that 7 Series owners can retrofit a spare. There's a built up trunk floor with a spare tire hole.Good to see that BMW is reversing direction on this.
