535 6-cyl

  • 4,000 miles


Goodyear 245-40R-19 tires on my 2013 BMW 535xi are defective. At 11K miles, I had to replace one tire and then at 15K I had to replace another due to side wall "bubbling". dealer informed me this happens frequently with these tires and there "is nothing BMW or Goodyear" will do for the consumer. Goodyear discontinued their insurance. Cost to replace with mounting and balancing/tax $500 per tire. At first, dealer mentioned you must have hit a pot hole. When I mentioned to him that two tires "bubbling" after 15K miles is very questionable he then informed me that this is a tire issue. I sent in a complaint to Goodyear and BMW to no avail. They do not want to take responsibility for the tire issue yet the tires are defective and BMW continues to place them on their vehicles. Researching the issue it seems there are many other people in my situation.

Both front tires developed a bubble after going over a small pothole/bump at under 30mph. This is the second time this has happened with this car that I have owned for just over 7 months and 3500 miles. These stock tires on 2013 BMW 535xi AWD with M sport package -- Goodyear Eagle LS2 - size 245/40R19 -- 98V clearly have a design flaw or manufacturing defect and must be recalled. It is a serious safety concern when driving over very minor road hazards might cause tire blisters that could eventually lead to a blowout.

Goodyear Eagle LS2 rof tires. Only 4700 miles on my 2013 BMW 535 activehybrid. Bubble on rf tire, I am the only driver. No potholes ever hit or curbs rubbed into. I am in the auto industry. Careful examination of the tire showed no signs of impact on the outside of the tire or the wheel. No damage to the inside either. Obvious defect in the tire. Looking at the numerous complaints about this tire online there is a problem. It needs to be addressed before someone kills themselves with a blowout.
