325Ci/330Ci door latches and closure

Hello:

I have a 2003 330Ci, bought new. Great car so far - not a single problem at 29K miles. However, from day one when closing the doors they make a very unsatifying metallic noise.

I was...

I doubt it's a bead problem. Instead, it's probably a valve stem related problem. Mix up a soapy solution and spray it on the valve stem (with the valve stem cap removed). I bet you'll see the...

The diameter of a 225/45-17 is 24.97 inches.
The diameter of a 245/40-17 is 24.72 inches.

No, the fronts are vented (as are the rears). The PowerSlot website strongly suggests the cooling vanes are unidirectional, which they're not.
