If I run them year round, are the mpg's going to be severely affected or wear quickly? If I can find wheels only, what year round tires are recommended? Thanks in advance for any info/advice!
Some people (not many) have pulled off the 214's so that they could upgrade to 336's or others. It would be logical that most do that after thy have worn through a set of tires so you may have to wait a bit. The 214's ARE an upgrade that you have to pay for when you order the truck so most people who have them went the extra distance to buy them for the additional $'s at the time of purchase. I've seen these with decent all season tires on them for around $2,500 on here and other sites. If you DO buy them from someone as a set of 'take offs' you are probably (90% likely) to end up with the Bridgestone Dueler's that BMW puts on those wheels from the factory so you may not have a lot of choice in tire brand if you are buying used.
