Run Flats Suck!!!

I've only had my car 3 weeks and have already had to replace one of my tires. Run flats!! $421 from Discount Tire!!

I was told by a couple guys that I can buy a spare for my 328i and when I have to buy a new set of 4, I could just get regular tires. Does anyone know where I could get a BMW spare from?

Good luck, I hope you find a proper spare. Run flats are rubbish.

I live in Garland. We can try and see if the doughnut from my E46 clears your brakes and fits in your trunk. From that thread, it looks like it does.
