I need a rear 303M Wheel!!!!!! Still...

I know I've brought this up before, just checking again to see if anyone knows of one. I thought I found one on ebay but the guy was honest and told me he thinks it was repaired. I do NOT want a repaired wheel. I have one on my car now and it's bent again. I just don't want to go to the dealer for a new one at $700.

I know Richard has 3 but I don't need 3 wheels to be honest. Not unless I plan on bending more, which I guess is a possibility in Chicago.

thanks

My tire insurance company just replaced a cracked rear 303 wheel, a front tire (large bubble), and straightened a front 303 wheel that was bent. I swear I can feel the front wheel still bent.

Since March I have had 4 cracked or bent wheels in Chicago, so Richard's wheels might not be a bad investment.

These rims will bend very fast. I wouldn't worry about buying a repaired rim. After driving for an hour, I can assure you that the rim will be bent .
Just my opinion, but unfortunately a fact..

I would recommend a jack, some cinder blocks and a lug wrench. Find another 7 with the wheels you want. U figure it out...... Total cost about $50.

On my 2011 550xi with msport I went threw 34 tires in one year, and 6 rims. They were all always bent. These rims with these low profile tire does not work on our roads. My 2013 750, I only replaced 7 tires so far!lmfao
100k for a car and they can't figure out how to stop the tire and rim destruction.

If you had 34 tires replaced in one year have you ever stopped to consider that the driver might have something to do with it?... Just saying... You can't seriously blame the manufacturer for you driving into pot holes.

You would think I hit every pot hole in the world, but in reality I only hit one! The rest were from normal bumps, those Goodyear run flats suck. Dealer said he had over 3000 tires that were being shipped back to Goodyear because of bubbles. I'll take the blame for one incident. Because of everyone having the same problem, Goodyear stopped there road hazard warranty on the tires. The Goodyear excellence on the 750 have no road hazard warranty. Thank god for insurance..

Dang, after reading this, I may want to hang onto my wheels just for insurance.

I have 1 front, and 2 rears off my 12' that was totaled. My 13' has 303's also, so these are just extras.

Agreed, I have not hit many potholes, seems like the bubbles and cracks can occur from normal use on the rough roads we have around here.

Did your wheel and tire insurance company give you a hard time about replacing 34 tires? That seems like a crazy amount!

I think definitely the stock tires and wheels are not sturdy enough. Regardless of poor design, quality etc., I think we all need to take some personal responsibility. If you keep cracking rims and destroying tires, I would expect some higher profile ones would be in order.

If the safety on your gun is intermmittent, you don't keep shooting yourself to prove a point.

How about getting the strongest (probably heaviest) set of 20s available? I'm not sure if there is any data available that would help you make that decision.

WOW This thread scares the crap out of me to order my 7 with the 20's.Our roads are pretty good but those numbers are crazy.I couldn't bear going through one episode of tyre problem with my 135i.Does anyone know with the 19inch rims have similar problems?I spoke to my dealer and he said that the bubbling is as common on the 19inchers too.

My issue is that I really don't want to go aftermarket, and I'm sure they're better. I like the BMW stock look to be honest.

I recommend speaking to your service advisor and see if they have issues. The roads around here (North Dallas) are excellent, and I've been driving on BMW stock 20s (the turbine style) for 18 months with no wheel issues. I've had 1 Goodyear bubble, replaced gratis under the prior road hazard protection. I have no hesitation in going 20s again, and would prefer to get the Pirelli's if I had the choice. If I did get Goodyear's, I'd buy a tire protection plan from America's Tire.

I'm not sure this is a good option, but the optional BMW 20's that I have may be stronger - http://www.carscoops.com/2008/07/200...es-images.html. They definitely do not look as good as the your ones.

My theory is that the strength is more evenly distributed when having 2 more spokes. The key is the distance between spokes.

I need a rear 303M Wheel!!!!!! Still...

Have not had problems with my Forgestar 20's luckily. That being said, I specifically avoided getting 22's.

Unfortunately style 238 don't come with the 7 anymore.They are only available in canada as per the website.Bmwusa.com has a very limited collection of wheels.

Seriously, I drive over rough roads like a scared old man on eggshells, basically stop and crawl over RR tracks and dodge so many potholes I am veering around like a drunk.

Look at all the postings on the F10 board, the Goodyear RFTs are defective tires. It seems like tire bubbles just randomly appear even when I have not been driving the much car (I do not drive it to work or even on a daily basis).

Bent wheels I can feel, but I never notice the cracked rims until I pull off the wheels and look. The cracks are always small hairline fractures on the inside lip of the wheel. If you do not specifically check a 303 wheel, you won't know.

Fortunately, I knew about these problems with the 20" 303s and have the wheel insurance, just afraid they are going to cancel my insurance.

So what's the problem? Just keep using them until they cancel your insurance, then go with a different set of wheels.

What other solution is there?
