    Hello all, completely new in here, and I'm very new to any European cars, usually just Japanese. As the title suggest, I would like to increase the tire wall. This is so that I can increase the ground clearance a bit, since in here, roads aren't in good condition, so a higher height would be...

    So recently I was driving and noticed a loud thumping kinda noise in the right rear wheel, happens when I step on the gas. Bad wheel bearing or tires? It’s only when I step on the gas, it’s normal when I go below 30mph

    Maxxis has a tire set for 180 shipped Sumitomo’s last a decade and they’re 280 Thought about 215s, 205s, but I find value in the door placard so I’m going with 195/65/15s. I’ve got the little style 53s that came with the the original sale. I think maxxis is kind of a funny thing to have on the...

    When it comes time to buy new shoes for your e46, how do you choose? As many of you will already know: Choice is subjective, personal. Not objective or in any way scientifically measured. It is likely never true that a tyre and size on someone else's car means it will perform the same way...

    Hey everyone, So I currently run two sets of tires on my 05 M3. Great set of P4S in the summer..but what I'm currently using for my winter tires is not great. It's good all seasons in the back and older summer tires in the front. My intuition is that this is probably not the best idea, but...

    Hello, first time here :D I have an E46 Coupe with sport suspension. Last week I've changed my wheels. I've moved from 225/40/R18 front, 235/40/R18 back. The R18 wheels are 8J ET40 all 4, and I've got the R17 E90 wheels Style 159 (8J ET34). The new wheels have 225/50/R17 tires on them and if I...

    For the last few thousand miles I have had some mild vibration at speed (slightly worse in curves). I believe the culprit was the right front wheel/ tire. I was concerned it could be an axle issue so i started to trouble shoot. Last night I rotated my tires (criss-cross X pattern for AWD) and...

    Hello, I have a 1999 E46 328i RWD with the stock wheels with 205/55/R16 tires. I am new to all the "tire talk" (bolt pattern, offset, etc). Can I go to 17'' or 18'' wheels? Can I go to a wider tire? I am not looking to modify any body panels, any steering components, or any suspension components.

    I am considering buying vmr vb3's for my e46 which would be 18x8.5 in the front and 9.5 in the back. Since wheel has a bigger diameter what size tire would I need to get in order to not throw off the speedometer or is there a way to correct the speedometer to the new size? I heard somewhere that...

And if so would they give me new tires? EDIT!!___ Ok guys so I got the tires april 3rd! I found the invoice for my...

    My 03 325i has had some serious starting problems lately. (Hasn't started in almost 2 months) I let my sister drive my car one day and she brought it back to me with a flat tire. Since I couldn't afford a new tire at the time and I didn't have a spare I let my car sit in my driveway for a while...
