205/55 R17 options for BMW 218d Grand Tourer 7 seater

Posted 13th Jun 2021
I am in need to replace the tyres for my car and couple of questions running in my mind and need some advise guys as this is the first replacement I am going to do on BMW 218d Grand Tourer -

  • Tyre size - if my current alloy rim is fitted with 205/55 R17 does the new tyre also have to be the same size? Or are there any other options?
  • Run flat or not - There is no spare on my car and currently fitted with normal ones. Is there any benefit of going with run flat if allowed.
  • Which brand - I am split between Continental and Michelin. Continental PremiumContact 6 205/55 R17 95V XL Vs Michelin Primacy 4 (205/55 R17 95W) XL *BMW ¬£421.56 at Halfords - any views about the brands and the sellers?
  • Age - Does the manufacture year/month need to be checked prior to fitting?

Thanks again for your time and help.
