    • Star approved tires: no ordinary tires
      Star approved tires

      To maintain the highest level of quality, BMW-approved tires are given a star-approval rating (★). The star symbol indicates that the tires have been optimally tuned for each BMW model. In cooperation with the tire manufacturer, each tire is designed and tested to meet BMW’s uncompromising standards for quality, ride comfort, handling and safety. By comparison, a replacement tire that is not BMW-star approved is designed for a wide range of models and various vehicle manufacturers.

    • Run-flat tires: unstoppable
      Run-flat tires

      Even after a complete loss of tire pressure, run-flat tires will retain their shape and remain firmly attached to the rim. Even at high speeds, the vehicle remains stable and precisely controllable. The vehicle can be driven for up to 80 km at 80 km/h* following a loss of tire pressure. The need for a spare tire is eliminated.

      *Certain limitations and restrictions apply. Drivers should check their specific vehicle’s Owner’s Manual for complete details.

That is why BMW-star-spproved cold weather tires are created specifically for your BMW, keeping you and your passengers safe on wet, icy, or snow-covered roads.BMW-star-approved summer tires are designed to provide optimal performance in wet and dry driving conditions. Their special tread compounds help with gripping the road, improving the handling and the overall performance of your BMW.

    • How do I find my BMW’s tire and wheel size?
      placeholder

      The wheel size is the diameter of your vehicle's rim, not including the tire. Your BMW's wheel size and recommended tire size can be found in the lower section of the b-pillar when you open the driver’s door.

    • Why do my tires have a speed rating?
      speed rating

      The speed rating is an indication of a tire's general performance capabilities. Speed ratings range from A (the lowest) to Y (the highest). BMW star approved tires utilize speed ratings that match the handling characteristics of your vehicle. Replacement tires should match or exceed the speed rating of the original equipment tires installed from the factory.

    • Why do my tires have a load rating?
      placeholder

      The load rating is a numerical value assigned to a tire based on the relative load-carrying capabilities of the tire. Load rating should not be exceeded as this could result in premature wear of the tire or sidewall.
