I have the "lowly" 18in

Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I437 using Bimmer App
Its not lowly. 18" works fine and does reasonable job.

I will take my car to an tire shop to get alignment done and set for my own sanity. I was thinking of at around 5000 mile mark. Now I am not so sure.

1. Why do people think runflats are the devils tires???? There is nothing about a runflat that leads to reduced tire life. You want to argue handling, fine- but not tire life. Plus the mich latitide is a gret runflat, superior to other brands. On my X5 with 19" rims it handles fine- but I have other cars to play in, the X5 is the SUV. I got 30k out of one set of latitude RFTs on my 2010, and am at 27k on the current set, which are toast now but since they wont see rain for 4 months I have time to replace them. Another set of Latitude ZP (run flats) in the future. (I could probably post a 'tires wanted' and find someone who things the runflats are radioactive! :) )
Do you rotate tire? I read on this forum that BMW does not do that. Also, how often do you check alignment? Once a year or once tire change/first time BMW?
