2008 BMW 3 Series 335i Convertible 3.0L twin turbo
I hate my BMW
Within the last 6 months, I have needed to replace 5 tires and 3 wheels. BMW claims that this is standard wear and tear. I have never had tire/wheel problems like this before. DO NOT BUY A BMW!!!
It would be a good car if it functioned properly. I have spoken with tire specialists, friends and dealers, and they all confirm that these are normal problems.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Ditch the run flat tyres (RFTs) that are fitted as standard on your car and you should get over this issue.
The RFTs are a proverbial pain to live with as they spoil the ride, cost an arm and a leg to replace, and are prone to rapid/uneven wear.
However, BMW (in all its infinite wisdom) insists on fitting them as standard.

Problem is not your car but tires you are using. If you have run flats, then get rid of them. I have 530i with Dunlop performance tires and they are running great. Second year now.
