I have wondered the exact same thing lately...my guess would be "yes". There is no spare.

Less than 1/8-inch (3-mm) tread depth from the lowest depth not on the wear bar, as measured by the BMW Inspection Wheel.

If it's not original equipment, it's not acceptable. RFTs are original equipment.

My CA confirmed that the car MUST be returned with the RF tires. Since there is no jack in the car and it is considered a standard feature of this model. In fact, BMW has a list of approved tires which it will accept for lease turn in. I guess that prevents someone from thowing on a cheap set of off brand tires before turn in.

It is not a "MUST" but if you dont have rft, they will make you pay a penalty which basically means you will pay the dealer cost to install and mount rft.
