Other than the obvious "there is no spare", any thoughts, suggestions, considerations? I've had the car a year and only have 6k miles on the RFTs, I don't do much commuting. Mostly trips and joy rides. I'll track it a few times a year.

I would take it back to the dealer and see if they can do a replacement for free of charge, some of the E90 having the same bubble problem with Turanza tires and BMW take care of it.
