    Hi Fast Bob...u were highly recommended...I posted this under E46 section, 3 series.....(I know, should be in Tire section, but needed answer QUICK, before someone snaps these up from me)...if cannot view thru PM, please see my post. Thx! -Don.



    I'm pretty sure these'll fit......but

    http://classifieds.castanet.net/deta...45r17/1692299/

    Mine: 2005 325 ci cabrio

    His: 2008 328xi coupe


    These Hankooks (in Canada, which ALL tires r more expensive here) sell new for $209ea. Plus we have a $5-7 tire recycling fee on any new tire, + OEM BMW steelies x 4, + 12.5% Sales Tax, plus mounting, balancing, etc.....This set would be well over $1300+. Not even mentioning the $25 + tax for EACH tire to add studs.

    3000km on this set.

    Any worries about fitment from 2008 to 2005 ?

    (I got the dude down to $750)

    Please comment fast so I can get today....thx!

    Hi Bob,

    So...I changed out the calipers and rotors and ...smooth as silk when braking but the steering wheel shimmy remains. I'm not convinced the chassis shudder won't return as the same thing happened last time I changed out rotors. This time I did calipers as well so maybe there was something causing some kind of symptom but I did not measure any meaningful run-out on either side's rotors or hubs.

    Absolutely weird and frustrating.

    Its great you support the wounded warrior project. My dad is an Iraq vet with gulf war syndrome. The armed forces deserve a lot more support than the public gives them.
