Same default except +5 in the middle. Believe it's 245-40-20 F, 275-35-20 R

20's haven't presented any issues yet, but it's only been a few weeks. I'd recommend getting the Pilot super sports over the run-flats, as they are softer and apparently handle impact better.

Was thinking for the winter, I'd either throw a winter tire on the 688 rim (there are a few threads on the forum that list a handful of tire options that fit), or else get a set of 684's at a discount if possible.

The m550i looks too similar to the 540i with the 684's - that was the core of my issue. Only three rim choices isn't helpful either.

Also - if you could comment on tire spec for the +5 option it would be much appreciated.
