Doesn't the M3 come with that flat repair kit instead of a spare? If so doesn't that stuff you inject into the tire to fix the falt make patching difficult?

Yes, it does, at the sealant will make a supreme mess of the inside of the tire. I would only use it as an absolute last resort. I carry a plug kit, which together with the compressor, will handle the most common punctures until you can get it patched.

I replaced my tyre 2 weeks ago due to a puncture in the sidewall this could not be repaired as it would be unsafe & illegal the replacement Mich cost 251.00 after a 10% discount, exactly a week later I got another puncture in the same tyre, luckily this time the poxy nail was right in the middle. So it was repaired & cost 20.

You guys should consider yourselves lucky...here in Montreal, POTHOLES are the causes of flats, as was the case on my 335 a few weeks ago...yay! - and no RFTs, because they were winter tires.

I declined the Tire Warranty package at first, but after reading this thread, I went back 2 days later and added it. In Canada I think those tires are really expensive. Love this forum!

FWIW - I have tire insurance on my 911S, and will be getting it on my 08 M3. Porsche (as well as some tire companies here in town) all said repairing a puncture on performance tires was a bad idea. Either way, due to nails, a nasty pothole and more nails - I got my money's worth x10 out of the insurance. My Porsche had tires replaced under insurance at least 3-4 times including one wheel fix after nasty pothole incident.

Performance tires are too expensive and too vulnerable, so I will always get the insurance.

Cheers.

Again I reiterate my question as no one chose to respond...Can you use non-OE tires and have applicable insurance?

if you bought the tire insurance package yes, it should cover any tire. that's according to the finance manager that talked to me. he could be lying. u should look at ur contract
