Why only BMW approved tires provide top performance for your BMW.
As the only point of contact between your BMW and the road, it's vital that your tires deliver excellent handling, cornering, braking, and solid acceleratio, in a safe manner. So your BMW can perform like a BMW.
BMW offers two categories of tires-Run-Flats and Conventional Radial tires. Run-Flat tires feature resilient rubber-reinforced sidewalls and heat-resistant rubber compounds. These allow you to continue driving with a punctured tire at a maximum speed of 50 mph for a limited distance. Consult a BMW center to find out if Run-Flat tires are available for your vehicle.
When you purchase tires at a BMW center, you can be confident that extensive testing has been done to determine which tires are best suited for your vehicle to maximize performance. Only tires that succeed in meeting BMW's standards for safety and handling characteristics are given the title of BMW Approved tires. And in addition to getting tires with the proper speed rating, load index, and size, they will be mounted and balanced by a BMW trained technician who knows your BMW.
