    They are prone for cracking

    Maybe it's the stiffness of the Run flats

    As Ronnie says, there is a real issue on the rear rims on the 19's cracking due to the lack of shock absorbtion through the sidewalls of the RFT's. Big issue out there in which BMW are being a little arrogant in relation to customer satisfaction IMO. Replacements being denied under warranty in most circumstances, replacements of the 230 style are £313+vat each, your style slightly more.
    The cracks are visible, I would just have a look now and make sure you have not inherited any and dodge the pot-holes.

    I have had 3 and drive like a ponce.

    Nice Car, Welcome mate
    None of the ideas expressed above are actually mine. They are told to me by Luthor and Ferdinand, the five inch tall space aliens who live under my desk. In return for these ideas, I have given them permission to eat any dust bunnies they may find under there.
