Donut as a spare w/ NON RFT's

If I should decide to change to Non RFT is there a donut available in the proper size that will fit my 2014 X! 28i x-line ?

thanks

Yes there is a donut available ==> http://www.bimmerzone.com/BMW_Perfor...T-E84-KIT.html

As an alternative, I have/use this Slime product ==>http://www.amazon.com/Slime-70005-Sa...me+tire+repair

I carry a tire plug kit (from my motorcycle) and a 12v air compressor in my rear cubby hole.

I carry a kit for the M under the rear floor. It has sealant and a compressor.

Wife just picked up her second nail in our year old X1. First nail (a big staple really) was too near the sidewall to repair, but was very tiny and the leak is slow enough that I can keep up with.

Second time, large nail. Luckily smack-dab in the tread center, so it could be patched.

So, twice I've managed to dodge an expensive tire replacement bill. But this pretty much makes up my mind that I will be switching to non-RFTs and the mobility kit when these tires wear out.
