Same story. Have 2012 55, fron driver tire replaced 3 times. also have needed to replace two other tires. This is a 2012 with LOW miles AND five tire have been replaced! Stay away from run flat tires!! BMW ddoes not keep tires in stock - when it needs to be replaced (and it WILL need to be replaced!) the car will be in shop for 5-7 days waiting for replacement tire to be shipped. All five tites had sidewalls blow out. This is not normal wear-and-tear, it is design problem. I regret ever buying this car because of the run flats. will invest in set of rims and "old school" tubeless tires this summer. I am willing to give up a little trunk space for a spare. The danger of run flats? What if I am driving cross country and tire blows out in Middle-of-Nowhere Nebraska? Hopefully there is a nice hotel nearby as I will be there for a week waiting for replacement tire. On old car, any sears or tires plus would have a new tire installed that day. BMW, drop the run flats and sell current vehicle owners new set of rims and tubeless tires at cost.Report it
