    Editor’s Note: Sailun arranged for AutoGuide editor Mike Schlee to test out the Sailun ERANGE EV tire by flying him to Los Angeles, California. Mike was not directly compensated for his review. The world of specialty rubber covers nearly every niche in the automotive landscape. Sports cars have...

    So it seems that there still isn’t a ton of experience with the i4 and Winter tires yet so I thought I’d throw in my recent experience. I bought a set of Continental VikingContact7’s exactly to factory size spec and had my local mechanic throw them on. Now, they put the 255’s in front (and...

    I went to Discount Tire to buy protection for damage and replacement on my tires shortly after I took delivery on the car. I had ordered 19" wheels with all season non run flat tires The USA build site shows only non run flat tires. I much prefer their ride. The salesperson went out to look at...

    Hey guys, my e40 finally arrived at the dealership! The dealer offered a 7-year full maintenance program which cost roughly $3000 for my e40. With this package, what i get in extra is wiper blades replacement, brake replacement, things like that. The main thing is really the brake. But for an...

    I an in the New England region and I have eDrive40 on order. The car is built and currently at the port waiting for a ship. I recently noticed on BMW USA website, that if you order eDrive40 you can also add a set of 19" 859 Y-Spoke Cold Weather Wheel and Tire Set as a second set of tiers for...

    Should I add the option of tyre pressure monitoring system for my i4 M50? I don't have any experience on it. It shows the tyre pressure, including the temperature (not sure, I remember I read it somewhere from the BMW press release). Its features sound like the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2...

    I see the list of BMW approved tires but they are mostly summer (performance) tires. What all season tires are new owners getting with their delivered i4 s? wallyf

    I know many countries do not allow winter tyres with spikes. But for those of you that can have that option - will you choose it? I always choose spikes because of the superior grip in icy conditions - but with the M50 I am not sure. I believe the spikes will be worn and levelled very quick...

    1st post. Just put my pre-order in yesterday in Kitchener, ON Canada... Best Case scenario is probably delivery in the winter of 2022/23... Anyone know if the m50 can take 18" rims? Wondering about starting to research winter tires and rims for my new daily driver...

    Hi all, First post from a fellow future i4 owner down under in Sydney, Australia 🇦🇺! Ordered my M50 in Tanzanite Blue with pretty much all the options in the book, should get here by August 😎! I’m considering changing the tyres on my i4 when it gets here for the Michelin Pilot Sport EVs...

    In my search for wheels and tires for my upcoming i4 I came across this list of tires BMW deliver on the i4 and figured it could be useful for people on here. (see attached) I´m trying to find a similar list for all the OEM wheels, but to no avail so far. I may have to compile one myself...

    In talking to my current leasing agent, she has just told me that the projected cost of tyre replacement is around £700 per tyre. Surely this is wrong, as a quick look at BlackCircles.com shows far cheaper (but not specifically rated for EV's) Welcome to the Blackcircles.com Help & Support...

    See this, and also the link to the Michelin Pilot Sport EV inside the article. Competition for the PZero that seems ubiquitous on EVs including the i4. Note Michelin's claim to extend the range by 60km. Marketing hype? https://www.motortrend.com/news/goodyears-electricdrive-gt-ev-tire/

    The following link leads you to a webpage on which the tires are mentioned that BMW uses on their i4 vehicles in Europe. BMW Tires G26 On the right side of those two pages, are links to the tires. Clicking on them leads you to the specifications of that particular tire: classes for fuel...

    What information is there on the range differences with 18“ aero wheels with performance tires v 19” wheels with all season tires ( brands of course unknown )? Recall seeing a reference to some European configerators providing this generally but not the specifics .

    Currently I have all-season tires on my i4 m50 order. I live in Atlanta, temps do dip down below 40 for a month or a bit more out of the year so I'm thinking all-seasons are a safer bet. If it means the car is louder w/ road noise I would re-consider. Overall I want a good ride, want it to...

    Hi. I pre-ordered the i4M50. It’s my first M series. While going through choosing options on the BMW website I noticed that there is no option for run flats. Is there some technical reason that one cannot have run flats on an M? Thanks for any responses.

    Hi all I was trying to figure out tyre sizes and if they are Runflat and found this: https://www.bmw.com.mt/content/dam/bmw/common/topics/fascination-bmw/bmw-efficientdynamics-2020/tyre-energy-labels/pdf/G26_BEV_Reifenliste.pdf.asset.1628757211432.pdf Thought it may be useful information.
