I recommend you change out the tires in at least pairs.

well i went to the BMW dealer here and they told me that the tire they have is regular tire not run flat, mine is run flat tires.

so should i go ahead and change all the tires ?! i mean should change to regular tire ?!

yeah that's what i was thinkin change them in pairs 2 back first .

u mean i order from tirerack ?!
and should i go with michelin or change to different brand ?!

Our US M3 is not a runflat. We have Michelin PS2s. If you have runflats maybe someone else installed those aftermarket or by mistake.

Monk is kidding. We all have seen the videos of Ferraris, Buggatis, SLRs speeding out there.

For the record, we do ship anywhere in the world. Tends to be fairly expensive to ship internationally, but worth it for some if the item is not available locally.
