535i X Drive Style 135M Rims

Does anyone know if a 535i X Drive with M-Sport pkg and style 135m rims (18inch) comes with Run-Flat tires?

It's not clear anywhere and not even my dealer knew when I asked them.
I know the X-Drive model without M-Sport does NOT come with run-flat tires, but my CA was 90% sure that the M-Sport 135m rims came with run-flat tires.

The most confusing part is that on BMW.com it says that the car comes with the 135m rims, it does not say that they come with run-flats, and it even says that the car comes with a space saver spare tire!

How can a car with run-flat tires come with a spare tire?

I'm so lost.

My friend purchased a 535 xdrive with the M sport option and his car came with Dunlop run flat tires with the style 135 rim.

LOL.

I know, but the car is not in my hands right now and not in the dealers hands, so we can't see what tires are on the car.
That was the problem.



When is BMW going to stop producing these damn tires?!
