And what if your tire is torn into the shreads running over a large piece of metal 5 miiles from the closest pit stop and 25 miles from the closest town under 110F sun?Use Run Flats like the X5s etc
Are those OEM? My 550i came with Continentals. BMW replaced first set free of charge at 11,500 - there was a TSB on the noise and premature wear. Got 15k on the second set before they became problematic, and they gave me 50% off a new pair at that point. Perhaps BMW has gone to Dunlops to solve the issue.I have run flats on the X6 (Dunlop Sport Maxx) and really like them. I've been pleasantly surprised at how long they last.
