Visualising a Winter puncture scenario, would I be happier noting the alarm from the TPC and continuing my journey then getting a runflat replaced as it's probably knackered.

Or

Stop, get out into probably crappy weather to stuff the gunk into the affected tyre then reinflate and roll to hopefully get a seal then jumping back into the car cold and wet. Finishing the journey and getting the probably knackered tyre replaced along with a new can of gunk ready for the next time.

I'm afraid I do find myself leaning towards the first scenario as a preference if I must suffer a puncture during Winter.

I get that.... I just detest run-flats. Dealer advised me that they've moved on leaps and bounds since my 57 plate 320D Tourer, but once bitten....

I felt the same about them when I got the 120d, I'd had my last car since 2001 an e46 320dSE on standard pattern 45 15" rims with 195/55 pneumatic tyres. I had a jack, full tool kit and full sized alloy sat in the boot wheel well, lovely.

Then I had to trust in 18" wheels with runflats 245/40 and expected the ride to be shocking and to be fair it did seem firm but I have got used to it.

We are unlikely to ever see proper spare wheels again eventually no matter what we drive so you may want to give them a go at some point.

I'd still prefer proper spares and the more compliant ride of pneumatics but I'm also a realist lol.

Less compliant ride and added road noise is annoying, but the lack of grip is more critical for winter tyres.

And that was my issue with run-flats. Just no grip, even in the dry, warm weather. Below 10 degs and in the wet they were like slicks, traction control light came on all the time.

But that was 4-5 years ago, so maybe they have improved them. But for winters I'll only trust non-RFTs to give me the best grip.

I'm hoping winters is on the way out when I pick up my car

My winters are runflats and have been on the car for weeks but not a flake of snow has fallen here.

I ran Dunlop WinterSport 3Ds on my 320D MSport. They were ace in anything below 5 degs, wet, dry, snow, slush. Didn't matter they were BETTER than the summers (Bridgetsone RFTs and GoodYear EF Asyms). They didn't really start to show signs of poor performance until the temp got up near double figures.

I now run Pirelli Ice & Snow winters on the QQ and Snow Control Seris 3 on the A500 (traded on Sat just gone) - odd size tyreson both cars, these were the best options available. Both these sets of winters are great in the snow and slush and proper wet, cold roads but not as good as summers in the damp, dry [cold] or greasy conditions.

Plus, they don't really come into their own unless the temp is close to zero or below.

To that end, the QQ is still running summers (Premium Contact 3s).

I'm a fan of winters, but some tyres are better suited to UK winters than others, eg Dunlops for me as they cover more conditions and a wider range of temps.

One of the cars I imported from Germany had Dunlop Wintersport 3D tyres. I briefly tested them on ice and snow, and concluded that they were summer tyres. Hardly any grip at all. Quickly replaced them with real winter tyres (I think it was Conti VikingContact or Gislaved SoftFrost back then). Now I stick to Michelin X-Ice Xi3.

Different country, different conditions. For the UK, on my BMW, they were the best of the bunch.

They've come out well in numerous UK and Euro winter tests, but as your in Norway you have whole different defn of winter !!!

I guess so. Here is a picture from one of my previous BMWs, taken in the end of May.

I have Dezent RE rims in 7x17 and 205/50R17 V tires (Nokian WR A3) on my M135i. Picture to follow. I am quite happy with the tires, much better than I would have expected.

Cheers
Ben

Here is the result. There is not much room remaining between m sport brake caliper in radial direction on the rear (about 4-5mm in radius)...
I think these Sydney Darks are the best for winters! Good look for 17"

Can I just check (before I buy) - you got the 17 x 8 ET 40 (5x120) and they fitted on the M135i??
With 225/45/17 winters?
Cheers.

I started with Style 379 with Brdgestone Blizzak 205/50/17


Not a fan of OEM wheels so decided to use them for winter instead with Falken HS439 225/40/18 winter tyres all round


Then decided that why compromise on a look I'm not happy with just because it's winter and got a set of OZ Ultraleggera 18x8" ET40 (same tyres as above) for winter use


Then I managed to get a set of one of my all time classic favorite wheels (no longer made) AC Schnitzer Type 3 18x8.5" ET43 (ET38 with 5mm spacer to clear brakes) which I'm now settled on for winter use (same tyres as above)


Long winded winter wheel selection but got there in the end
