Lease turn in with different BMW wheels than it came with?

Does anyone have any experience turning in a lease with different spec BMW wheels than the OE wheels and tires. I have a 2011 E90 335i with sport pkg that came with the 18 inch 189s. Those are long gone. Have some 19s with non runflats that wont make the grade and would rather keep. Would I get gigged for factory 17s with correct Tpms and good runflats with a square setup?

They will not be able to sell the car without runflats at the least. So looks like you will be purchasing runflats for the dealer. Just my opinion.
I would put up a post and see if you can find someone to trade with.

You may be able to turn in with the 17s but safest bet is to just get some run-flats for the 19s you have.

If your car had the sport package when it was leased to you they'd want it turned back in with sport package oem wheel tire combo.

However, many dealers will choose to just look the other way if you lease another car with them.

They will check the tire size and wheel type, and will be looking for the run flat tires.

For a leased car swapping to go flats you really need to swap out the RTF before they are too warn to pass the turn-in inspection. Save them in the garage & put them back on for turn in.

A $100 for a tire swap can save you a $1000+ at the end of the lease.

OEM equipment MUST be on the car, or they'll bang you for it.

I have the 19's up for trade in the Wheel/tire sale section. May end up just dropping a K for a used set of 189's with OE runflats and selling my Aluflugens after I pickup my new 335is.
