  1. Need new rear tyres totally confused now

    I disagree, RFT and NON RFT have different physical construction and as we all know cause a car to handle and behave differently so personally I would recommend NOT mixing on the same axle and maybe for a short periond having RFT/Non RFT on front /rear but again not ideal. IMHO.

  3. Need new rear tyres totally confused now

    I am in the exact same situation with my 530d. Ideally would like to ditch RFTs but fronts are pretty good still. My shopping around has led me to consider Non RFT Bstone RE050A £660+ VAT 195rear 135front PZero slightly more pricey Falken FK510 - opinions? Yokohama V105 - opinions? The other option is put a set of cheap RFTs on the back and wear them down until the fronts also need replacement and replace all 4 with decent non RFTs On Kuhmos, I put them on X5s and they do a great job!!
  4. Falken FK510 tyre

    Has anyone knowledge or experience of the Falken FK510 non RFT performance tyre?
  5. Hi , Thanks for sharing - very enjoyable and informative. I watched most of these especoially the 535d and the 640d.....Ihave an LCI F10 530d MSport.... nice car but I've been considering the F10 535d and the 640d coupe for a while as my next car. The 640d GC is just too long for me. I look at the 640d coupe now and again.... sometimes it looks fab, sometimes a bit long and wonder is it dating a bit now...... but its got style and the same engine as the 535d. You liked the 640d GC - any particular view son the 640d coupe ( apart from the practicality side of things)? Maybe the F10 is the compromise best of both ......Thanks for your thoughts
  6. Swopped 2017 RFT's for Goodyear Eagle F1 A3's

    Thanks.. Yes you are right, I dont think any of them actually protect the rim....however I like to look of the rim protector rather than a straight sidewall.....
  7. Swopped 2017 RFT's for Goodyear Eagle F1 A3's

    What type of sidewall profile are on the F1 A3s - is there a rim protector type sidewall? Thanks !
  8. Anyone fitted these to an LCI F10

    Thanks Matthew. Did a search and found a few results. Aside from part nos. there actually is a difference in the caliper designs used and the OEM M5 wheel just about fits with the caliper with curved profile next the wheel - hence my concern.
  9. Hi Has anyone successfully fitted these 20" Avant Garde M355 to an LCI F10 MSport ? Specifically the LCI I believe has a different front caliper design without the curved shape.....If so what tyre sizes 285/245 etc? Thanks
  10. Eibach Sportline Springs 45/40mm for BMW F10

    @Oinkster, Car looks great. What wheels are they - are they OEM M5 wheels or something else? Did you have any clearance issues with front caliper? Is yous LCI - I believe the Pre LCI caliper is ok which has a curved shape that clears the wheel but the LCI caliper doesn't have the curve shape which I think would be problematic. Also what front brake disc and caliper are you running? Thanks
  11. Birds Quaife LSD to F10530d

    Thinking of a Quaife LSD for the F10 530d as fitted by Birds. Wondering if anyone has had this mod done ?
  12. Automatic lights.

    same as this .....LCI F10
  13. Got rid of the Runflats

    Which Goodyears, Pirellis etc do you know.? What non RFT have folks found to be good grip/wear compromise and a nice sidewall rim protector??? My PZero RFTS which I will be getting rid of have a nice pronounced sidewall rim protector. They don't protect the rims as we know but its a nice looking sideway which I'd like to retain on the Non RFT
  14. Got rid of the Runflats

    Agree with this. I think the stiffer sidewall means that theres less 'give' and when thread is lower they break away easier
  15. 100k mileage not far off....

    absolutely gorgeous, wheels and car. Badly need an E39M5 if anyone knows of a low mile facelift for sale in Carbon Black !
