  • 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.

  • Why do my tires have a load rating?
