If anyone has tires/wheels theyre selling...

I really need one front run flat to complete a set for hand in. I would take a complete set if needed, including 264 rims/tpms etc.

Does it need to have lots of tread?

Not sure. When are you looking at turning it in? Like I said, I probably won't swap my wheels until first weekend in April. Just got my new summer tires from TireRack yesterday! Let me know if you need the tires...

I have a pair of front 215 potenza tires unmounted, lots of tread life left. I took them off my stock rims in November when the winters went on.

pm me if you still need them.

I had to do the same thing, buy some used rears before lease turn in (not because I burned them slowrider! lol) because they wore out ridiculously quickly.

The tires all have to match, and have to have at least 1/8th inch tread left. If they don't match or are too worn, you get dinged $250 per tire.

Heh, I'm probably going to have 3 sets of rims before the end of the summer. I put together something that approximates the mobility kit (slime and a compressor) so that I can run normal tires. I dont like the cost of RFT combined with the limited life and poor ride quality/grip.

I also have a set of Style 44 17 rims from my 330xi that I hope to use as winter rims. Not that I plan on driving it a lot in the winter, but Ive been caught out in bad weather a few times and getting home on summer performance tires is always a bit of an adventure. I'll probably run all season tires on those rims and on the 17 inch rim will give me a little more sidewall to deal with the crap winter roads.

The third set is if I get into AutoX to the same level of obsession I usually achieve with other motorsports. Its a bad sign that Im at Tire Rack 4-5 times a day looking at different wheel packages.
