17s are nice and have plump tyres.

I bought a set of Michelin Pilot Sport 4 for my F30 320D and wow. I just can’t wheel spin this case anymore. The car grips like a mad lad.

When I went to go test drive a car (BMW Cedar Isles) and brought up to the dealer that I swapped out of Runflats I was told that if I had a puncture I might not get assistance from the tyre guys - the BMW wheel swap dudes. So that kinda sucks.

I got confirmation from Holland Insurance (through my FNB insurance broker) that they don’t care if it’s Runflats or not. As long as it is starred.

this is not true i have pilot super sports and bmw on call has helped me out many times under motorplan no issue at all with non run flats

I’m so happy to hear that. Whew.

How did they help you if I may ask? Flatbed you to a tyre shop/ dealer or give you a replacement? And if they gave you a replacement was it a normal tyre or runflat?

Lastly did you specify when you called them that you had non runflats?

When you call them, you just tell them that you have a puncture and they ask for location, the tyre size and your details. When I had a puncture in the middle of nowhere in the free state, they brought me a run flat tyre and told me to drop it off at any dealership. They don’t ask you funny questions, as long as you have motor plan, you are covered

A stupid thing that is there just to make our lives more difficult.
I changed tyres recently and put the exact same Michelin Super Sports that my car came with.
Only a little while later did I realize that it wasn't star rated.
Compared it to my old tyre and everything is EXACTLY the same! From load rating, to thread wear etc etc.
Then did some online pricing comparisons and even the prices of star rated and non star rated are exactly the same.

Biglol I don't know which insurance companies you are referring to, my advice! change! Rofl
The assessors just measures the thread on your tires, they don't care about the star rating. as long as your tyres are road worthy. The insurance pay and I'm not talking about hearsay or making assumptions, this is through experience and both cars were written off.

RE: I fitted none runflats to my beemer!
No all true.
Remember you need to have the same spec tyre as the one your car was bought with basically.
Speed rating and load rating. This is important.
It can be a nankang as long as the spec is the same as the original tyre.

I think the load capacity and speed rating is something that makes sense for the insurance company to check. A taxi using the wrong load capacity tyres is dangerous. A bakkie carrying a load with the wrong load capacity is also dangerous. The insurance company needs to cover themselves.

However the star rated tyres is a bit of an irritation. I have put really good tyres on my car...but they are not star rated. I hope it isn't an issue with my insurance company. I will have to phone them and check now.

RE: I fitted none runflats to my beemer!
Oooo pretty!
I have the Michelin super sport but cant remember if they star rated or not.
Cant give a hoot if they are. They higher than the bridgestone spec so insurance can fly.

I agree with you

I work at bmw and when they come out they just check what's damaged on the vehicle and they just take out pics of the tyres to see if they not smooth and size they not really picky if it's approved bmw tyres most f30 and F15 never come with runflates and most of them never come stared

No use explaining, let the guys believe whatever they want to believe. I have personally claimed on accident and even met up with the assessors when they came out to the panel shop to assess the damages. They only measured the depth of the thread on four tyres, never said anything about the speed ratings or tyres not being run flats. Will try and check if I still have the assessor's report from my recent accident

This is a screenshort of the assessor's report when I had an incident in December last year. If this is not proof enough that the insurance care less about the star rating or whether runflat or not, then I don't know dunno anymore
