Changing BMW Tires: Step-by-Step

To successfully change the tires on a BMW, you’ll need the right supplies: a jack, lug wrench, spare or new tires and your owner’s manual. Replacing a tire on any vehicle, whether that be a car, SUV, or truck, is a relatively easy process

  • If you’re on the side of the road, move to safe place and turn on your hazards
  • Apply the parking brake and wheel wedges under the other tires
  • After removing the hubcap or wheel cover, loosen the lug nuts
  • Raise your car with the jack and remove the lug nuts
  • Remove the current tire and mount the new or spare tire
  • Tighten the lug nuts and lower your car back to the ground

How Often to Change Car Tires

Knowing how often to change car tires comes down to how often you rotate tires and how well your tires are made. You should get the full mileage out of your tires if you rotate your tires regularly, but the tire pressure and tread should be checked often, too. If the tread wear is significant, and your tread depth has fallen below 2/32 of an inch, you need new tires. A good way to ensure your tires last for as long as possible is to schedule a tire rotation when you get your oil changed.

How Many Miles Can You Go On a Spare Tire?

If you have to use your spare tire, you’ll need to get a new tire as soon as possible. The most miles you can go on a spare tire is typically 50 miles, and you should never drive on them at high speeds. Your spare tire will have specific limits, but most recommend staying below 50 mph.
