A very common question involves replacing the run-flat tires found on many BMW vehicles. They are Original Equipment on many BMW cars and SUVs including 1 series, 3 series, X3 and X5 among others.
Can my original wheels be used? Yes. A non-run-flat tire can be safely mounted onto a factory BMW wheel that originally held run-flats. There are exceptions to this, specifically on Honda Odyssey Touring models with the PAX system. However, all BMW factory wheels will accept a regular tire.
Will my local installer need special equipment when I make the change? When you first change from a run-flat to a non-run-flat tire, the installer will need run-flat capable equipment to remove the original tire. Many of our Recommended Installers have this equipment.
There are many options available when making this change. Our website and sales specialists are ready to help.
