If I remember correctly, the wheels on my 2002 325xi were 16" so I assume the spacesaver spare was too. My 2009 has 17" wheels but I like your suggestion of giving it a go when I buy the RFTs.
Anybody out there know if Les Schwab tires are any good? There after-purchase service is excellent.

Ah I get it. Once again, the machine overcomes common sense---okay, I sense the presence of a corporate lawyer behind the curtain!

I've got a certain independent Mom-and-Pop tire shop in mind for all my future work. Discount Tires now dictates where they'll put the new tires (on the rear, BTW, if you buy "only" 2 instead of 4) and whether they'll repair a slow leak. "This tire is worn out. We won't repair it."
I'll find someone who will.
Besides which, they'll be willing to mount and balance my Tire Rack purchases.

Me too; my shop charges $15 per tire to mount and balance and they gladly mount my Tire Rack purchases...
