BMW Runflat Technology

A good feeling all around.

Original BMW Tires with runflat technology.

Be on the safe side: Original BMW Tires with runflat technology keep you mobile even if all tire pressure is lost, allowing you to travel up to 80 km (at a speed of up to 80 km/h) to the nearest workshop - for more safety and maximum comfort.

Highest Safety

 

Original BMW Tires with runflat technology strongly lowers the safety risk in the event of a flat tire: instead of putting yourself in danger by changing the tires by the side of the road, you can drive safely and comfortable on for approx. 80 km (at a maximum speed of 80 km/h) to the next workshop.

Less Fuel

 

In addition to their runflat properties, Original BMW Tires with runflat technology decrease total vehicle weight as you no longer need a spare wheel or Mobility Set. This saves fuel and helps lower CO2 emissions. Original BMW Tires with runflat technology are thus an integral part of the BMW Efficient Dynamics measures.

More Storage Space

 

With Original BMW Tires with runflat technology you no longer need a spare wheel or Mobility Set. This saves volume in the boot and gives you more room for other items, like BMW Car Care products or luggage.

Optimal Maneuverability

 

Thank to specially-reinforced sides, runflat tires ensure that the vehicle remains fully maneuverable and can still travel for approx. 80 km (at a maximum speed of 80 km/h) even if all tire pressure is lost. This greatly reduces the danger of the vehicle swerving if a tire bursts when travelling at high speed.

Constant Control

 

For several years now, all BMW vehicles have been fitted with a Tire Defect Indicator (TDI) as standard. This allows the driver to monitor tire pressure during the journey. From 2014, BMW will be introducing an active tire pressure control system that displays the exact tire pressure. This vastly increases comfort and safety. The correct air pressure guarantees minimal fuel consumption and reduces CO2 emissions.
