BMW Tyres

For decades BMW has chosen Goodyear tyres as original equipment (OE) and homologated tyres for their vehicles – from the performance M cars to the larger luxury family SUVs and estates, the vehicles and the tyres they drive on have stood the test of time and wear.

Original Equipment tyres deliver optimised vehicle performance and ride, and as the driver’s only contact with the road surface, are a crucial component of the vehicle. Goodyear's BMW OE tyres are fine-tuned to each vehicle chassis and built bespoke to the marque, model, type and specification of the vehicle. With over 120 years of refining and enhancing premium tyres and over 600 OE contracts with leading car manufacturers, you can trust our bespoke built tyres to retain your vehicle’s performance.

Run-On-Flat Tyres

Goodyear RunOnFlat tyres, also known as Run Flat tyres perform differently to a conventional tyre that will deflate in the case of a puncture. Run Flat tyres are designed with reinforced shoulders that allow the tyre to continue to carry the weight of the car over a limited distance. This means the driver can continue their journey for 50 miles at a speed of around 50mph* in the event of a puncture, to a safe and convenient destination to change the tyre.  

Normal tyres in the case of a puncture are likely to affect the control the driver has over the vehicle and risk the tyre detaching from the rim, as well as causing damage to the alloy wheel.

BMW OE Tyre Sizes

All BMW Goodyear Original Equipment tyres are marked on the tyre sidewall with a 'Star' mark to show the tyre is manufacturer approved.

BMW Tyre Pressure

Maintaining the correct tyre pressure is crucial in ensuring optimum tyre performance. All aspects of driving and tyre wear can be affected by under or over inflation – therefore it is fundamental to know your vehicle’s tyre pressure and monitor this at regular intervals. By driving with the correct tyre pressure your vehicle’s handling and traction will be optimised in all weather conditions and have a positive impact on braking distance and fuel efficiency.

The correct tyre pressure for your BMW vehicle can be found in the vehicle handbook or visible on the inside of the driver’s side door.

Do I Need To Change All 4 Tyres?

Even though you may be a safe and smooth driver, there are times when the unpredictability of other traffic or road surfaces that may require you to break harshly or swerve – pushing the demands on your tyres. By fitting the same construction and pattern to both axels on your car aids equal handling.

Different patterns or brands of tyres can vary in height and the speed they roll due to their individual designs or state of wear. This can affect the performance or mechanics if the tyres are mixed.

Whilst there are no laws in the UK requiring all 4 tyres to be the same pattern, it is recommended to do so to provide equal performance to aid safe driving. If you are planning to drive abroad in your own car, it is worth researching laws of the countries you will be visiting or driving through as some do have laws on mixing tyre patterns.
