BMW sells a mobility kit which sits nicely next to the first aid kit.

You would have thought they'd gone USB by now!
I have those sizes on my stock wheels. The PS2s are great tires and I love mine very much.

If you want to use non-runflats just pay a visit to Supercheap and pick up a can of tyre sealant and a small 12V compressor. It'll get you out of trouble if you pick up a small leak through the tread. A large hole in the sidewall will require a call to BMW Assist. Keep in mind that if you use the tyre sealant, most tyre shops won't repair it for you and you could be up for a whole new tyre rather than a patch. Same deal with RFTs though.

BTW I went three years with non-RFTs on my MINI and never had need of the goo or compressor. Actually I DID use the compressor ... for pumping up footballs!
