    I have a e46 325i sedan. My current setup right now for wheels is 18x8.5 Et 32 wrapped with 245/40. But somehow the tire sidewall in the rear is rubbing on fenders. What should i do? 1. Change tires to 225/40/R18? 2. Change wheels back to stock 16", if yes should i go with 205/55? I really...

    Hey All! I've tried to cover all my bases and dig through existing posts, but have had no luck. I currently have a set of Bilstein PSS (B14) coilovers on my '01 325i. I run a set of CSL reps that are 18X8.5 et40 with a 225/40/18 tire with zero clearance issues on the fenders or the...

    Hi all, having stumbled upon a post by someone upgrading from 16" to 17" space savers, I remember I completely neglected the subject since putting on the Performance brakes. My current wheels are OE Style 135 (supposedly ET47/50) and Style 216 (don't remember the ET, 34/37 seems low given they...

    Hey there everyone, i'm reasonably new to the e46 family. i've been doing some searching but i can't seem to find the concrete answer to my issue. So i have a 318ci Coupe e46 non-m and i have recently acquired original alpina 17"ers now there's no ET value on the rims as far as i can see but...

    Will 18x9 +34 wheels fit on the car without rubbing without rolling the fenders?

    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

    I’ll be driving my 2001 325i :excited:and all of the sudden it feels like the drivers side front wheel grabs for a second and then lets go. Then the yellow dash DSC and “Brake” light will come on and stay on until I shut the car off. They usually reset. Occasionally, when driving, the yellow...

    Hi Just wondering will a 16" spacesaver wheel fit a 325 Ci Sport or will it foul the brakes. 16" wheels are much easier to find than 17" ones. I have a 17" wheel for my E60 that I could use to test but if 16" would do the job it would make life easier. TIA

    I'm looking to buy a 325i 2004 and there's a couple of rust spots on the rear of the wheel arch and near the bottom left side seam of the trunk. Do you think these are just surface rust spots or could it be more severe underneath hidden in plain sight?

    Hi everybody, I tried launching my car pretty hard today (before this I've haven't pushed it while launching). Got the wheels to spin a bit, and while I was gaining traction back, the whole car started shaking violently--the gear stick was really vibrating--, and then I heard a loud thud at the...

    I know the front wheel bearing needs to be replaced, any recommendations as to where to buy the parts? Thanks

    The other day, I developed what I thought to be a bad wheel bearing. Major vibrations would increase in intensity linearly relative to wheel speed. I could hear it coming from the drivers side rear wheel and didn't think too much of it at the time because I don't have the tools to swap rear...

    I looked everywhere and cannot seem to find a number for the weight of the Style 102 wheels, which are stock on an E85 Z4. Wheel dimensions are 16"x7" ET+47mm.

    Hi all! I have searched high and low and not found what I am looking for, several threads with no response ect... Whilst very hard to explain I will have a go, in my car there is play in the steering wheel, not the usual left right when turning the wheel, but if you hold the wheel you can move...

    Title says it all. I'm furious!! I bought a used wheel fender on here for my Ci (missing on ownership) and that one and my original both crumpled off in a period of three days! In the same freeway ramp exit. I'm more pissed about the price of the bolts I'll be paying. What am I doing wrong? They...
