    Hi all
    Just changed all four tyres to non-run-flat tyres on my 2010 320d m sport coupé. And i must say its a much smoother ride,when i rang BMW for there opinion,they said they didn't advise it as it might affect the warranty.....so i rung the BMW warranty people 08712000199 to check it out..They told me it WOULD NOT affect my warranty in the slightest.BMW just want you buy run-flats at high price about £1300 for four.
    The tyres i bought were Falken FK453 xl 225/35/19 front and 255/30/19 rear,total price £626 fitted.Got to buy a space-saver now 3.5x17 et8 rim.
    Hope this has been some help to all that are undecided !!! GET RID OF THE RUN-FLATS.

    Word of warning! No amount of tyre repair spray will fix this, I bought a space saver tyre as a result

    no runflat will save you from blow like this too!

    anyway, done it myself, only downside i could see that suspension was really tweaked for the harder rubber, and now on the softer rubber car feel like its rolling into the corners. but hey, i got SE model
