2015 BMW M235i: Pony Parts Hauler

June 22, 2015

2015 BMW M235i

We needed to pick up four new tires for our long-term Ford Mustang GT but the only car available at the time was our 2015 BMW M235i. It seemed like a good impromptu test of the BMW's cargo capacity.

The Pirelli PZeros were sized 255/40ZR19 up front and 275/40ZR19 in the rear. At a glance we thought one of the fronts might fit into the M235i's trunk. The lowered convertible top tucks into a compartment slightly recessed from the top lip of the trunk opening.

But it hung just low enough to deny the Mustang tire entry. It was so close that we think a front M235i tire (225/40ZR18) may fit, but that was not on the agenda today. So we opted for the path of least resistance.

We dropped the BMW's top and tossed the tires inside. It was really the easiest way to do this. Our only concern was the tires rubbing on the red seat leather. But we loaded them carefully and drove cautiously for 1.5 miles to the office. Everything was fine. We may have just found a new test fleet tire hauler.
