What do you do if dressed up and on your way to an event, then BOOM! You have a flat tire. What next? Change the tire or drive to your event and then later on to the work shop and get it repaired? Below explains the advantages and reasons behind BMW creating run-flat tires on most of their new models.
The following text was published on babybmw.net, an UK fans forum, in response to a customer’s concern.
BMW aims to provide our customers with a premium product that provides ultimate safety with optimum performance and it is always a concern to receive feedback of this nature.
We chose to include Run-flat technology on our vehicles for the following reasons:
- It is dangerous to stop on any road to change a tyre, especially on a motorway or at night.
- There is no need to have to wait for a breakdown service to arrive.
- Safety and security of the driver and passenger(s) is maintained.
- Alloy wheels are difficult to detach from steel hubs.
- On most cars the spare is under the contents of the boot, and uses boot space.
- It can be tricky to line up the wheel bolt holes with the hub screw holes and match the thread.
- The dirty punctured tyre needs to be removed and stored in the boot.
- Another puncture before the punctured tyre is mended means one is stranded.
- A driver can continue for 150 miles at 50mph with a punctured Run-flat tyre.
All of our vehicles that use Run-flat technology have their suspension and braking components set up to accommodate Run-flat tyres. Should you decide to change to non Run-flats, it may alter the driving and handling characteristics of your vehicle. It is for this reason that this modification is not recommended by BMW as a manufacturer.
However, it is possible to have standard tyres fitted. You will additionally need to purchase either a spare wheel with jack and brace set or a mobility kit which can be ordered from the Parts Department of your nearest BMW Approved Dealership.

Watch the video below and stay connected to their Twitter and Facebook (@MINISterlingVA) to see how this MINI dealership in the greater Washington DC/Northern Virginia area, is promoting love for all 3 states. They highlight the John Cooper Works car and give you a magnificent driver’s experience suitable for tourists and residents alike.
As taken from their website, here is a short description of the new John Cooper Works Gp 2013 limited edition:
Built for the track, the limited edition MINI John Cooper Works GP is an uncompromising performance machine that hits 60 MPH from a standstill in 5.9 seconds. With an exclusively engineered powertrain and chassis, extensive aerodynamic styling, adjustable coil-over suspension, massive 6-piston Brembo® brakes, custom embroidered Recaro sport seats and tires developed in a special partnership with Kumho, it takes our world-renowned handling to levels bordering on diabolical.
And with only 500 or so MINI John Cooper Works GPs coming to the U.S. (and just 2,000 being made in the world) you’ll have to move fast if you’re interested. GP fast.

Sgt. Eric Bragg flew in from Afghanistan back to a country that he walked away from his love numerous months prior. He didn’t give an adequate “Goodbye” to her when leaving. This time he wanted to do things right!
Arriving through Dulles International airport, straight from Afghanistan, he headed to Sterling Virginia to pay her a surprise visit. He came in at sunset and after seeing her, started explaining why he left and how he’d never make such a mistake again. She wasn’t willing to follow him home immediately, but with the dust of Afghanistan still on his boots and uniform, and extremely tired and exhausted from the trip, he didn’t back down. He went to a nearby hotel to rest up and come right back to negotiate further.
While he was there, she thought about all he said, then got dressed up and decided to go to him at the hotel. She knocked at his door, heart beating so hard because she just wanted him to take her away and never return. He opened the door, still tired, but his eyes almost jolted out of their sockets as he ran through the door, hugged and kissed her and swore to never let go. At that moment, he decided to drive down to Canada and stay for a few months with his little dog and pick up his girlfriend from Delaware along the way.
His love was his MINI cooper. He traded in his MiNI just before leaving for Afghanistan and she was on his mind even while he was there. So he came straight back to the dealership after seeing a lot of our online activity. He negotiated with our sales rep and bought a MINI that looked similar to his very last car.
See him below as we caught the moment he opened his hotel door and saw the MINI we delivered to the front door of the hotel. Have a good vacation Sarge!
