THREE CONVINCING REASONS.
On the road with greater ease: BMW Wheel and Tyres with star marking.
“WE TEST EVERYTHING, SO YOU DON’T HAVE TO TEST YOUR LUCK.”
Original BMW Wheels and Tyres with star marking.
The star marking indicates that a tyre has been specially
produced for BMW – and in accordance with the highest BMW standards. The development of the
tyres also begins at an early stage in the development of the vehicle and can take up to
three years, culminating in extensive testing. Tyres with star marking are tested in six
general areas: safety, wear, comfort, efficiency and – characteristic for BMW – in two areas
of driving pleasure: driving style and sporty behaviour. In addition, they are developed in
collaboration with selected premium manufacturers (e.g. Bridgestone, Dunlop, Goodyear and
Pirelli). Simply ask your authorised BMW Service Centre for tyres with star marking –
precisely fitting, tested and safe.
All Original BMW Wheels and Tyres are
individually developed for the driving dynamics and the design
language of a specific BMW model.
Each tyre has passed stringent testing
with up to 50 different quality criteria (the EU tyre label
demands compliance with only three criteria).
Tyres with star marking convince with a
particularly long life, top safety ratings and state-of-the-art
SAFE AND ALL-ROUND STYLISH.

When it comes to handling on any road surface,
everyone agrees that the most important thing is maximum grip. But there
is no universal solution. Each model behaves differently and, therefore,
requires a nuanced approach. Only BMW knows the unique driving physics
and design language of each BMW model in detail and adapts its tyre
development accordingly. What you can do: change your tyres regularly.
Your authorised BMW Service Centre is always available to answer your
questions and offer advice on suitable services.
The ideal tyre for the warm
months of the year: summer tyres represent an
optimum of comfort, acoustics and rolling
resistance. The special structure of their tread
pattern has a rubber compound that does not become
too soft even at very high temperatures. With larger
tread blocks and less lamella structure, they
reliably prevent aquaplaning and offer increased
directional stability and steering precision even at
high speeds. Not only does this make your ride
safer, it also delivers superior comfort and
handling even at high speeds. Good to know: when
temperatures exceed 7 °C, your tyres should be
changed to summer tyres.
Considerable differences in
braking distance in the same model result not only
from the product properties but also from the road
condition – it can increase the braking distance
tenfold, e.g. on slippery roads. To keep the braking
distance as short as possible, we recommend the
seasonal Original BMW Complete Wheels and Tyres with
star marking, which are ideally matched to the BMW.
The tread depth is particularly important for the
suitability of a tyre: experts recommend a tyre
change if the tread depth is less than 4mm.
BMW WHEEL AND TYRE DICTIONARY.
The dictionary provides definitions for everything related to wheels and tyres.
Wheels and Tyres with star marking offer many advantages
because they are developed to fit the BMW model in question.
Traction, directional stability, steering behaviour, comfort
and acoustics are optimally adapted. The tyre’s tread
ensures good road grip and water displacement, improved
high-speed capability and optimised driving stability and
rolling resistance. Shaping layers inside the tyre keep it
stable even under high internal pressure. The side strip
protects the tyre from lateral damage and provides improved
steering and comfort. The steel core supports the firm fit
on the rim. All-in-all: the specific tyre structure provides
a clear advantage in safety and driving dynamics.
The aspect ratio
is the ratio of tyre height to tyre width in % (H/W). It is
indicated within the size designation of the tyre. Example:
a tyre with a dimension 175/70 R 13 has a width of 175 mm,
the side height is 70% of the width. The date of manufacture
is indicated within the DOT marking on the sidewall of a
tyre. The so-called DOT number indicates, among other
things, the age of the tyre in encoded form. For example,
“2413” means that a tyre was manufactured in the 24th week
TPMS stands for
Tyre Pressure Monitoring System. Unlike FTM (Flat Tyre
Monitor) where only passive warnings are given about the
rotational speed of the tyres, the system works with active
electronic sensors. These sensors are installed in the valve
(inside) and are in constant radio contact with the
The TPMS shows the air pressure on the information display
and warns if there is a loss of air pressure in the
corresponding tyre. Make sure the TPMS sensors are suitable
for your vehicle as they can vary for each model and year of
abrasion occurs automatically, so the tread pattern of the
tyres should be checked regularly. Summer tyres should have
3 mm tread.
You can always
rely on runflat technology. Not because you can continue to
driving for another 80 kilometres at a speed of 80 km/h
after a puncture – it’s just because you can continue to
drive. Continuing to drive means safety and comfort. The
reinforced sides of runflat technology tyres stabilise your
vehicle so you don’t have to stop in unsuitable places to
change tyres. Instead, simply drive on to your nearest
Authorised BMW Service Centre.
