I own my car, so I didn't have to sweat it...and as you know, every dealer is a little different...but it seems ridiculous to me that they won't accept a better, more expensive tire upon turn-in. That said - I know how BMW is with their "Approved" on how many miles you have on the run-flats now, I guess the only thing you'd be paying for is the mounting and balancing. If you're current run-flats are past the point of "Acceptable" tread wear for turn-in, I would find another dealer who will cooperate, or just stick with the run-flats I guess. What a bummer...
