No, not at all. It comes down to the fact that BMW have been using them for several years now. This will of course continue. I have had one 'flat' in over 7 years of my E90 ownership. I haven't a problem with RFTs.
I would rather carry a spare than have to drive with a flat and then have to replace the $500 tire.[/quote]
That cost you posted is vague and arbitrary. It depends on tyre size. I just replaced 2 Pirelli P Zero tyres 225/17 for my E90 in the front due to wear and in preparation to selling my car when my F30 arrives.
They cost me $635.00 for both to change & balance them as well as a full 4 wheel alignment. Not too bad at all. This, in a country know for all things expensive, when it comes to BMWs & accessories.
