Exclamation All Season RunFlat???

I have a 2006 325i with sport package and was wondering if anyone knows of an ALL SEASON RunFlat tire that works with my setup?
I really don't feel like buying a 'winter' set of tires and rims.
Thanks

You can get all season RFT's for the front ones, but not the back. The fronts are a very popular size 225/45-17 and you won't have a problem finding RFTs for those. You can do one of two things, get another set of cheap wheels and winter tires, or eliminate the staggered setup completely and run 225/45-17's all around. You would have to purchase two, new BMW wheels, but could then put all seasons on them, and never have to worry about switching.

Even if he has different width rims, why couldn't he put the same size tire front and rear as long as he kept the wider rims on the rear?

thanks for you idea, though I was trying to avoid the cost of having to purchase rims of any kind.
Guess I'll just be extra careful in the snow...
