19" Runflats for E90?

So....been looking at various 19" wheels, including Breyton GT-S, Miro, VMR, etc...and I've noticed all of the wheel/tire packages do not include run flat tires.

I've only found one brand of 19" RFT, the Bridgestone RE050A, which are offered in a 245/40-19 F and 255/30-19 R. I realize the overall diameter will be off slightly, speedo error, etc...but am a little worried of getting a flat and getting stuck. Anyone can recommend what size (width) wheels should I be looking at F/R? I have an E90 w/ZSP...tnx!

If you go with aftermarket 19" wheel/tire set, you can purchase the BMW Mobility Kit in case you get a flat tire http://www.trademotion.com/partlocat...catalogid=4462

If you want to stick 19" RFTs, then you should be looking 8x19 front, 9x19 rear for the wheels. The RFT sizes that are BMW-approved are 225-35-19 front, 255-30-19 rear. Here is an example http://www.trademotion.com/partlocat...catalogid=4462

For an aftermarket example, VMR has their V714 in 8x19 front, 9x19 rear that you could fit RFTs in the correct size to http://www.velocitymotoring.com/links/wheels_v714.htm
