On March 5, 2018, I bought a set of 4 new Bridgestone EP500 tires for my 2015 BMW i3 Rex from America's Tire. Just 3 months later, the rear tires are showing radial after only 5,604 miles of use (below 3/32). The front tires look brand new and could last another 20K miles. This is very disappointing. I drive in ECO PRO mode, and to have this type of tire wear in just 3 months is very frustrating. All my EV savings from gasoline will now go into buying rear tires each quarter. This more then doubles my operating cost/mile for the i3. I hope BMW seriously addresses this issue in the upcoming iX3, iX5, etc, as I will definitely be waiting on tire wear reviews before considering another BMW EV.
I have the original tires on my BMW i3 2017 with range extender. The wheels are standard 19". I test drove the 19" and the 20" and the 19" tires are a better comfort wheel. I drive 40 miles to work and 40 miles back home so comfort was important to me. I have 35,700 miles since my purchase in January of 2017. Now I am looking to replace the rear tires only. The front tires look like they have a long way to go. I drive my car with sometimes too quick a take off as it is so much fun to drive. I feel this has reduced the rear tires somewhat. But overall I am very impressed with the milage of these tires. From what I saw on many reviews before I bought the car I did not expect the tires to do so well. Overall I am very impressed with these tires. I am expecting 45k to 50k with the front tires.
