Do some research: I've already had a flat. I hate donuts..

I'm running 18 x 8 front plus tire measures 25.3 in diameter
and 18 x 8.5 rear plus tire measures 25.2 in diameter

I took one of my front wheels off and it fits perfectly into the wheel well. With the size tires that I'm running. So, I'm buying another 18 x 8 so I have a full size spare.

I can now use this spare on the front or the rear, this theory will not work for everyone, but it's worth looking into. Not sure if a tire dealer will sell you a donut, maybe you can find one at a salvage yard or bmw dealer.

Hope this helps.....:thumbup:

wtf is a donut?
A donut, is that piece of Sh!t spare, they give you thats good for about 50miles. When I upgraded to the Style 71 - 18's.. BMW states that you do not get a full size spare, cause it won't fit into the wheel well. There wrong, I've already proven that, but like I said - it depends on the size tires your running.

By the way, Krispy Kreme are OK, but Shipley's Donut's are better...:thumbup:

Happy Holidays everyone...:thumbup:
