Run-flat tyres offer a variety of advantages, primarily that they allow a vehicle to continue to be driven for some distance despite a loss of pressure. On the other hand, conventional tyres tend to weigh less (less unsprung mass) and have better dampening capabilities.
There are currently no run-flat tyres available with the speed index required for some BMW ALPINA models, often capable of top speeds over 300 km/h.
In addition, many BMW ALPINA models come with 19", 20" or 21" wheels as standard. These dimensions dictate very low side-profiles, whose dampening qualities would be negatively impacted by the use of run-flat technology.
Tyres fitted on your BMW ALPINA:
Every BMW ALPINA comes with conventional tyres and a Mobility System fitted as standard.
The tyres, developed in cooperation with Michelin specifically for use on our automobiles, not only contribute significantly to the typical sporty but comfortable ALPINA handling, but also help ensure maximum safety at high speeds.
To ensure that our customers are guaranteed absolute mobility even in cases of a puncture or sudden loss of tyre pressure, every BMW ALPINA comes with a Mobility System fitted as standard. This system allows you, by means of injecting a sealant into the damaged tyre and subsequently re-inflating it with the help of a compressor, to continue on your journey or to the next service facility with minimum complications.
