Tires on lease returns

Quick question...do we have to have the same tires when we return our leases? meaning if it came with the ps2's, it has to come back with a set of ps2? or can we have whatever we want in there?

usually you have to return the car with the OEM tires. so you cant put a set of cheap general tires for example. but its possible that your dealer might let you off the hook if you have a good relationship with them so clarify this point with the them.

you need to have the oem wheels on. also they need to have a decent amount of tread left on them. Technically the dealership can charge you for new rubber if your tires are worn when you turn it in! basically on the lease you need to return the vehicle exactly the way you picked it up.

Are you going to get another M when your lease is up? or go a different route?

I've found dealer policies vary on this. Some say must be an OE tire (you could probably get away with the Conti's, since they were OEM on some) many just say it has to meet or exceed original speed/load rating.

Definitely look at the terms of your contract, and if it is unclear, get a statement in writing regarding the expectations prior to turning it in .

You'll never go wrong using the OEM, but a lot of times just matching specs will be enough.
