Traded 650i and the 550i Tires are Goodyear. Pics to follow...

I'll post some pics but it's gray day here in Chicago and they don't do it justice. Review later - all good!

Hey DocBob,
How are you liking your car. I have a question for you. I just bought a new 2012 550i with xdrive and m sport package that will be delivered in 1 week. I have heard many negative things about the factory tires (Goodyear Run flats) and I noticed you swapped them out for the Michelins. Are you pleased with tghe tires? Did you buy a aspare and stick one in the trunk or just buy a can of fix a flat?
Thanks

Plenty of discussion on this. Another member swapped to Pilot Sport A/S's and also went up one aspect ratio (to 45) for better pothole protection. A quick search should find some other threads, but the consensus is they rock.

Sicne you didn't ask (LOL) I switched to non-RFT's, and I carry Griot's garage kit and a can of fix a flat. So I have a compressor, patches and sealant. SHould be good to go!
