Tire trouble…

During a 4 day trip the rear tire of our BMW Z4 3.0i picked up a lose screw and as a result the tire was slowly deflating… oops. Run-flat tires allow you to continue for approx. 100 miles, but the tire could not be repaired nor patched.  Even though the tires weren’t worn out, I decided to replace all four tires with non-run flats with Hankook Ventus V12 Evo K110 (What a name for a tire :) ). These tires are similar to the ones I mounted on the 3-series and perform(ed) incredibly well!

  • Last 2x as long
  • Less expensive (the OEM Brdigestones are $300+/tire)
