1 Run-flat tires do not come equipped with a spare tire and wheel.
2 Driving over rough or damaged road surfaces, as well as debris, curbs and other obstacles can cause serious damage to wheels, tires and suspension parts. This is more likely to occur with low-profile tires, which provide less cushioning between the wheel and the road. Be careful to avoid road hazards and reduce your speed, especially if your vehicle is equipped with low-profile tires.
3 Optional and included in 328i and 328i xDrive Premium Packages; standard in 335i, 335i xDrive and 335d.
