Tires last well. Ours have 16,000km (10,000 miles) on them and about half worn. They are expensive if you buy them from the BMW dealer, but good price from a tyre dealer. Set of 4 19 inch from Tire Rack are $543. Similar to the Leaf tire prices but less options available because of the unusual sizes.
