RFT with Non-RFT in Rear ok?

I searched and couldn't find any topics about this. Does it matter if you run a RFT in the rear with a Non-RFT?

Its not AWD, not sure if that matters?

BMW also says have the service/ maintenance done at their stealer ships... I had non rfts on my car and didn't have any issues. In the end, it's your call tho.

Thanks. I had all non rft on my 08 335xi. My concern here was if having one rear rft and one rear non-rft would cause issues. Same size tires so I think it'll be fine. Hopefully others chime in.

of course you can! there should be no harm mixing non RFT and RFT.

you just have no protection against nails or blow outs. There is no spare or jack so your kinda screwed.

if the tire size is the same, you won't have any issues... when i get a flat (on the stupid RFTs), i just use my spare (non-rft), and never had any issues... hell, i've even done one 255 and one 225 -- on the rears during my spare, still no issues.

Your car will ride soft in the rear and hard in the front. (that sounded wrong)
