Since they cannot tell if it has been internally damaged, BMW dealers will generally not repair RFTs, but some tire shops will.
Thanks for sharing the post.
I dont know how true this is, but according to the BMW dealer, the RFT may be repaired but once it has been repaired, it will not last that long anymore due to the compound used in the tire itself ? is this true ?
