winter tyres

Hi all

Thinking of winter tyres for our BMW - we need winter run flat tyres which makes it a little harder.

We are only here for one winter, so are really looking for second hand ones, or somewhere that would buy back in the spring.

What does everyone do who is here for short ish periods?

Many thanks

Learning French

Why do you think you need run-flats? Many cars these days don't come with spares, but aren't fitted with run-flats, just relying on a repair liquid/spray and 12v compressor. (Which I've had to use once on the R36 - ran on the repaired tyre for over 1000km).
