Meh, I got a set of nice blizzaks on spotless 16" contour reps for $250. Not to mention the brand new M52 oil pan he threw in.

Would depend upon the mileage on them. Blizzaks are good for about 30-40k. When I bought them for the Vibe, they were $700 or so installed (they were 15s). If there is a lot of wear, the price ain't good.

drive to NY and ill buy them or at least half way.


I would put 205's on the wheel and hubcentric rings to make them work. only 10$ rings and tires would be like 100$ a pop.


sounds like a damn good deal to me. and if they were actually on a 5 series then it would be a PERFECT offset for my car since im looking for something in the upperteens with 8-10.5 wide.

Respray. Non-BMW color, whatever it is. Way too rich for Dakar, which is the only BMW yellow that's even close.

You can only see one side at a time, so you can only see one dent at a time!

Well, that and the fact that BMW stopped making the E34 in 1995...

With a headwind, it backs up.


Being it's a five-speed, I'd so buy that if it was close and I had the coin. I need something cheaper to drive than this gas-guzzling van. If my daughter can get 30mpg out of the automatic, I can sure get that from a standard. That's TWICE what the van gets.
