  1. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hey all- I***8217;m stressing. I want new wheels for my beast! I***8217;ve done a ton of research and I just can***8217;t get straight answers that help me make a final decisions. I want to put 19s on my F30 (328d). Stocks at 17s. I don***8217;t want to stagger- because I don***8217;t know...
  2. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hey everyone, I drive an e92 335i with the M-sport package. I'm on stock height and I'm on 225/35 (front) and 255/30 (rear) atm. I'm looking at getting a new set of tires since I have a crack in one and the rest are getting towards the end of their lifespan. The car is on 19s and I was just...
  3. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I have a 04' BMW E60 525i, and I am looking for some wheels. Ok so I can pick my design and stuff, I get that, but the thing is, I am not sure on what sizes are applicable on my car. I want 19's on front and rear. Here is the thing I want as wide of tire as possible in the rear, I just like...
  4. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I'm trying to figure out which size to go with, and wondering what others have found works best. And in particular, what provides the best combination of comfort and dry road fun. I suppose that if 225s allow a bit more (stability control off) fun in the wet, that would be a plus too. On the...

  7. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    Just noticed another tire blister the other day. This comes after just replacing another tire last month that got a huge gash on the inside shoulder. This will be the 4th tire I've replaced due to blistering, not counting the first one I noticed and had replaced when I bought it not quite 3...
  8. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Hi all, I have a 2008 750i with Sport package, with 128 style wheels. Currently I run 285/30/21 on rear tires. Since I can't find a good deal on 285/30, are 295/30 a perfect fit? Perfect? Or is there an alternate tire that would fit just as good as 285/30? Thanks a lot. DC7.
  9. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Looking for a recommendation on new tires specifically size. My 535i OEM size is 225 50 17, thinking about 235 45 17...thoughts?
  10. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Hi All, We bought my wife's 2007 Z4 3.0i Roadster as a certified used car, and as part of that sale the dealer put on a new set of tires (Potenza). After owning the car for about 20k miles, I had assumed that we'd be needing new tires soon, and sure enough, they failed inspection today, so I'm...
  11. BMW Coding and Programming
    I have a friend with an F30 who acquired some winter shoes from his brother. The problem is the rubber is smaller, so there's about a 3" difference in circumference. Also, there are no TPMS transmitters. The tires have about one more season of driving on them, so for this winter, we'd like...
  12. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    I recently purchased a 2013 650i xDrive Gran Coupe with the M Sport Package. During my review of the car & owners manual I have discovered that the car has the wrong size rear tires & rims on it. The car currently has Good Year Eagle LS2 tires, size 245/40R19 on both the front and rear of the...
  13. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I am a new member here and will greatly appreciate whatever help I can get with my 2005 745i. I switched out the tires it came with (all 245/45R18) for front:245/45R19 and Rear:255/55R19. unfortunately I started showing transmission and Dynamic Stability control errors which disappeared when I...
  14. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hello all, I have searched the forum and can not find confirmation of ample clearance for 235/45/17 size tires on front of my e90. I have a pair of Yokohama Advan tires that I removed from another vehicle and would rather put them on than buy new 225s. Has anyone run this size without spacers...
  15. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I have a 2008 535i that I am looking to put the Avant Gard M310 matte black 20s on (staggered 20x8.5 front and 20x10 rear). Tire Rack reccommends putting 245/30/20 front, and 295/25/30 in the rear. We spoke to some guys at discount that said we could run a 255 in the front. I have a few...
  16. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    My 2004 330 xi has Bridgestone 205-50R17 tires on front and 225-50R17 on the rear. Just wondering...will 225s fit on the front? If so, will 245-50R17s fit on the rear? Thanks.

    Hi Gary, I currently have stock wheels on my 1997 E36 coupe with 205/60R15 Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position tires (from Tire Rack, of course). I like the tire. It works well in summer, rain, and light snow, so it's good as a year round tire in Portland. I need new tires, and I'd like...
  18. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    After many years of Audis followed by an Mazda RX8 and a MazdaSpeed6, I just picked up a 1994 540i for $2800. The car only has 122k miles on it and the body and interior are in very good shape. After sinking another $1300 to replace the valve cover body, front rotors and pads, water pump,and the...
  19. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    This may sound like a stupid question, but is there an easier way of checking air pressure in spare wheel of X3 and filling it, other than to go through the pain of lowering it? I mean something like a hidden access to stem valve or something? I was filling it up to not get caught with a flat...
  20. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Just purchased a 97 (96 production date) 540i 30 days ago. it has 235/45/17's all around. It is a sport model 6 speed (RED :thumbup:) so the rear tires should be 255/40/17 235/45/17 = 25.3267 inches diameter front standard 255/40/17 = 25.0314 inches diameter rear standard. I have the 235/45/17...
