    Hi there! I drive a 2004 730d which came out with tyre size 245 55 17 and I need to replace two tyres following a little argument with a pavement. :cry::cry: I cannot find this size or the alternative recommended by the bmw agents 255 50 17. I have found two tyres size 235 55 17 which I am...
  3. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Sorry if this an old question! I need to buy new tyres for my X3 2007 3ld sport but am getting a bit confused! Would really appreciate if anyone can advise. I am in a remote location and need to order them. Many forum posts strongly suggest 4x4s need the exact same tyres size/type on all 4...

    I have a BMW X5 (e53) 4.4i Sport 2004 I have been offered a set of 4x 255 55 19 tyres at a great price. Can I fit 255 55 19 tyres on all four wheels? I think I have the standard 18" rims I have been told they would be fine from some garages and then on the other hand I have been told they...

  6. E39 (1997 - 2003)

  8. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    I cant find the answer to this anywhere. So i got a used 66 plate X3 m sport with 6000 miles on. Pretty good so far but after i drove away i noticed one of the tyres was a good year, not michelin primacy 3. This lead to me finding all sorts of horror stories about transfer boxes exploding...
  9. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hey, need help with the tyres on my alloys. I currently have 225/50/r18 tyres non flats. BMW LA wheel, Double Spoke 397.

  11. General BMW Questions
    I have an X1 which is two months old and has done just less than a thousand miles. I drive like your grandma because I always have my little girl in the car. I got a puncture in one tyre and BMW said I have to replace all four due to wear in the tread. The tyres are run-flats and it is going to...
  12. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hello one and all, Delighted to have a BMW to my name, although I have 2 issues. Any help could make my life so much easier: 1) Want to sell my 18" Pzero multispoke with 6mm thread to replace with 19" 313 m alloys with tyres, I don't want to break any forum rules - maybe I'm not allowed to say...
  13. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Hello all. Driving the other day and suddenly a warning that says something like "tyre stuck" shows up. I don't recall exactly it was. Although it was something to do with the tyre. It wasn't a flat tyre warning either. Didn't come up again. I would like to know what happened and why it...
  14. E70 X5 M and E71 X6 M (2010 - 2015)
    Hi. Until last year I had an old 4.4 2000 X5, and I use it a lot in the snow. It was brilliant. (I liv in Switzerland where hard packed snow and ice are common at the ski resorts) Last year I got a M50d. The garage gave me a spare set of wheels + tyres. (Its customary here to put summer tyres...
  15. General BMW Questions
    My rear tyre got punctured. I saw the quotes most are £180+. I can't afford that right now just on a tyre. Im in tough financial circumstances. My question is can i use a non run flat tyre with the 3 run flat tyre. Will this cause any problem, mechanically, driving wise? Will it void my...

  17. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hey folks, like many threads here, I can also testify that excessive inside rear tyre wear is common on BMWs, and I thought just on the tourers at first (having owned a 528 before and now a 320i touring), but reading these threads it seems saloons suffer too. Anyway, just having some MoT...
  18. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)

  19. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hi I bought a F30 320ED last year and I went to the 1st car service last week. My car has run about 10,000km and thinking if I need to swap the tyre like I did for my old car for every 10,000km. I asked the technician he said no need. (1) Should I do the swap actually? (2) If need to swap...
