Spare Tire

Hey guys,
I drive a 330XI with 19 inch wheels staggered. I was wondering if i were to get a flat tire and change to the spare tire, Would i effect the awd system?

your spare tire should be within 1% the overall height to keep things in balance.

when i ditched my runflats in my '06 xdrive, I just got an air compressor and a plug kit. Had a flat, pulled out the nail, plugged it, pumped it up and I was on my way. Anything worse, I'll call a tow truck.

I haven't tried any of that slime stuff yet.

i still have run flats on my '09 and will probably replace them with runflats. the ride isn't as harsh as it was on the '06.
