2014 BMW 328i xDrive Gran Turismo: Tire Wear After 25,000 Miles
February 23, 2015
Tires ain't cheap.
Our long-term 2014 BMW 328i xDrive Gran Turismo wears a set of Pirellis (Cinturato P7 All-Season Run Flat) sized 225/50R18.
They're far from the most expensive tire in the land, but according to TireRack.com they cost $189 dollars each on closeout. Not exactly chump change. And the last time we had a puncture back about 11,000 miles ago we paid over $350 for one.
The good news is that these tires last a good long time.
We've been driving our all-wheel-drive 328i for 12 months and nearly 25,000 miles. As you can see in the photos its three original Pirellis still have plenty of life left in them. They're not even close to being down on the wear indicators and they don't look much more worn than the newer right rear tire.
We've also been very satisfied with the ride and handling the P7's have provided. Plus, we have yet to have another puncture.
Although I probably just jinxed us.
