Most BMWs from the early 2000's on (except the M's) came with run flat tires and no jack. That doesn't mean you can't mount non-run flat tires. Many on this forum including myself are using non-run flat tires and very happy with them.
With that out of the way, next decision is what do you want to do with the car as that makes a difference in the type of tire you buy. If you just want to cruise around a good set of all seasons like the Continental Extreme Contact DW are a popular choice. Michelin Pilot Sport 4S is a popular choice also, but they're a bit pricey. If you want to do something more sporty, then there are a number of extreme performance summer tire choices.

+1 for the Michelins PS4S. I think they have a sale on PSS's at Tire Rack last I checked. That would be my second choice. They didnt have PS4S in 18's last year otherwise thats what I wouldve gotten.
