Hi. I can sell you mine for $200 shipped.

I have a brand new 18" aftermarket sport rim, mounted to a used run-flat tire. The rim is practically brand-new, and has never been mounted to any car. You will actually need to also balance it.

I am about to put on my winter tires, and will be using one of my summer rims as spare. No need for my current spare.

When you say "fits" - if you mean in the compartment in the trunk, no tire will fit in there. It's not a spare tire compartment, just extra storage. BMW concluded that run flats are perfect and nobody would ever want to carry a spare. So if you want a spare, it has to go into the main trunk area.

That's why many guys go with the compact spare kit, since it's compact and has the jack etc. that you didn't get either. If you want to carry a full-size spare, it's going to take up most of the usable room in your trunk.


This may the one feature I truly dislike about my car.

i am talking if it fits on the bolt pattern ..i know it will fit in the trunk, but i am mainly concerned it it fits on the bolts so its usable.
