Fit tires inside a car?

So how well can we fit 4 wheels and tires inside the f30?

I may need to carry a full set of winters on a road trip. Can we fit 3 in the trunks?

I was only able to fit 2 wheels in the trunk and the other 2 on the back seat when I swapped over to winter wheels.

1 part I love about the 2013 f30 is you get fold down rear seats standard. I was able to fit all 4 400M sport wheels and tires in back. You can see one of them sticking out in this picture.

nano, how you like the color combo? I just ordered the same as you and was a little worried bout the coral red with the estoril blue.

I put my winters in garbage bags and fit two in trunk and 2 behind passenger seat.

You can fit all four in the back seats easy. Tire rack tire totes and a blanket and its all good.

I picked up a set of winter wheels and tires from the tire rack, and was able to fit them all like others posted. I doubt you'd be able to do it with only half of the rear folded down- one passenger only. The split fold down is spectacular, especially coming from a sedan with only a center pass through.

If your road trip takes you up north to snow, just ride with your winters on and don't worry about it. There are plenty of performance winters out there that do great on the freeway. I'm very pleased with my Michelin Pilot Alpin PA2 ZP Run Flats
