Customer Question
I asked my dealer...

I asked my dealer to put 4 new tires on my vehicle....the same ones that were on the car which were 225/45R17 94W XL Eagle Sport All Season. What I ended up with is Run flats that appear to be summer tires. The dealer is telling me these are all season, but I swear these are summer tires. Here's the information on my receipt: Eagl: 369041

Mechanic's Assistant: When it comes to this particular vehicle, have flat tires been a problem in the past?

36-11-0-440-527 225/45 R17 91V Goodyear Can you tell me if in fact these are All season tires or are they summer tires? Thanks.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Eagle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have had problems with Run Flats in the past. I go into areas where there are no BMW dealers and in fact Run flats aren't available. That's why I got non-run flats and put a donut in the trunk. I'm not so concerned about the run flats; what I am concerned about is that the tires they put on are summer tires. I live in PA where the winters can get bad and I drive through the mountains on a monthly basis.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, I think thats it. Thanks.
