F07 / F10 Tire Problems.

I have a F07 and my friend has a F10. Both cars are under 8K miles. Both are on on the second set of front tires due to "Pot Holes". Is anybody else having the same problem. I personally think it's a design flaw.

To clarify. The F07 has 20" wheels and the F10 has 19" inch wheels. Both have the same problem.

If so, get rid of them and switch to regular tires. problem solved.

We would if we could, but then where do we put the spares (car was not built with storage for that). The front and rears are different. So I guess we carry two spares, which entirely defeats the purpose of buying a GT with all the cargo space? Since modified the car, BWM would not be liable to assist us anymore either. Can I have a plan B?
