  1. E39 wheels on an F11?

    Hi Hope someone can help! I was wondering, would 16 inch E39 wheels (strictly for winter use) be compatible on a non-Msport F11 (which otherwise rides on 17/18 inch rims)? I've seen an ad for some used E39 rims, but clearly don't want to splash out if they're not compatible. Thanks!
  2. Frustrating vibration

    So I have a frustrating vibration, prominent between 60 and 70, lessening by 77 and above. Gut feel was wheels/tracking so had that done first. At same time replaced two ball joints at rear. Still vibrating. Then had more examination, replaced front shocks and a wishbone bushing. Still vibrating. Had Guibo and prop center bearing done, shifts better and no shunt, but still vibrating. With more time on motorway to really experiment, and with car now riding smoother, the same vibration is still there, felt in legs and wheel, but it's not wiggling of wheel, it's a higher frequency. So this makes me think it's something wheel/tyre related or wheel interface? Coukd really do with a known good set of wheels/tyres to rule this in/out!
  3. Hi there I have a 2011 BMW 520d F10 and want to change the wheels on it but need to know what other model BMW wheels will fit it as Ive been offered some nice X5 claw wheels but want to get the right fitment for my car can anybody help?
  4. Would these fit?

    Guys, would these fit a 550i f10? 255/40/19 m wheels ( see pics) think they are off an m5? With almost new winter tyres.
  5. Assistance

    Ladies and Gents, If you've read my other post here, you may have some idea of the biggest issue with my wheels. They judder after 60-mph (just feel a vibration in the steering, nowhere else), braking is fine, track rod ends are fine, wheel bearings are also perfect. The wheels themselves have a part number stamp different to what the M-Paras should be on the E39. (ending in #730) so they're from an E38 or E31 - and seem to have been machined out to fit, and machined out just a tad too much, buggering them up. I was wondering if anyone local to west london, or at least within a short drive from heathrow, has a set of natural E39 Paras that i can test and borrow for a couple of hours just to make sure that it's only the wheels that are the problem. Rental payment will come in the form of a bacon sandwich and beer tokens (or McDonalds and juice if that's your flavour) Muchos Gracias Hombres Deepan
  6. Just wonering what alloy wheels and tyres you guys use on your F11 or F10. Mainly interested in aestheticall look and of course comfort and etc. If possibly you can post some pictures that will be nice. Thinking about getting dark grey or black wheels instead, any suggestions, thanks
  7. E39

    From the album BMW E39 Project

    Temporary on 15 inch wheels in the rear, but the pic came out very well :)
  8. Hi, just about to pick up a 2015 520d M Sport with the Sport Plus pack but as I travel down some bumpy country lanes I am hoping to exchange the 19" 351M wheels for a set of 18" 613M wheels of similar (excellent) condition and tread (only 7k miles done). Anyone interested let me know at michaelpd123@yahoo.co.uk Based in Nantwich, Cheshire but willing to travel to meet up if required. Pics to follow Thanks, Michael
  9. I've been looking into 18x8" wheels for summer tyres, to replace the 17" with winter tyres still on my F11. I thought others might find the information I've dragged up useful, so I thought I would post it all in one place. Wheel/Tyre weights Size Style Weight, kg Weight with 14kg RFT (225/50R17 or 245/45R18), kg Delta to 236, kg 17x8 236 9.93 23.9 0.0 17x8 327 11.88 25.9 2.0 18x8 350 11.40 25.4 1.5 18x8 281 11.90 25.9 2.0 18x8 365 12.13 26.1 2.2 18x8 237 12.48 26.5 2.6 18x8 330 12.60 26.6 2.7 18x8 328 12.77 26.8 2.8 18x8 234 11.10 25.1 1.2 F07 wheel 18x8 234 11.10 22.2 -1.7 F07 wheel with Michelin PSS Sources: http://www.bmwstylewheels.com http://tiredb.com http://felgenkatalog.auto-treff.com/ The take aways from this for me are: 1.There's little difference in weight between 225/55R17 and 245/45R18 tyres - RFT's come in at around 14kg, non-RFT around 2kg lighter (although there seems to be more variation in the weight of non-RFTs). 2.There's quite a range of weights for the OEM wheels. 3.The F07 234 wheel is significantly lighter than the second lightest, the 350M, and is cheaper (AFAIK there shouldn't be a problem fitting an F07 wheel, other than the fact that F07 and F10/11 use different profile tyres, but waiting for supplier to confirm). 4.The humble 17" 236 is actually quite a light wheel. RFTs can be deleted in other markets? Ummm.... sort of. In the test I did on the French BMW site, you can indeed delete RFT's from a new car configuration, unlike the UK site where you can't. However, it appears you can only do this for 17" wheels, as, as soon as you up the size, the delete option is no longer enabled. Type-approved non-OEM wheels X10 seems to be the most prevalent, but there are a couple of variants. Wolfrace X10 is not RFT compatible but Uniwheel X10 18" is RFT compatible (also sold under Rial brand I believe). Still trying to confirm weight of Uniwheel X10 18", but the 17x8" version apparently comes in at 10.8kg, based on a post on another board. If that's true then it compares well with the OEM wheels in that regard. So..... still undecided (except I want to keep RFT's).... but if the 18" X10 comes in at 12kg or less then I am not sure I can justify spending £1300 on BMW wheels rather than £500 on X10s!
  10. Somebody spent a couple of bob on these recently. Dunlop TD230/55ZR390 No crack's, no bulges, very, very good tyres Set of five, with 7mm of tread on them Center caps present 475 for the set, postage is available Located Uk, junction 16 off the M1
  11. Damaged Sider Wheels

    Hey gang, noticed i was loosing 20psi overnight so popped to local tyre fitters to have wheels inspected. Only to find out the the two rears are cracked in a few places, so had to break out the credit card and forked out for some aftermarket alpinas. Now i'm left with wheels i have no use for, if anyone here would like these as a complete set for a donation and willing to collect in person (Mersyside) then please get in touch to arrange collection. Going to place a ad on gumtree next week and thinking of asking for £200. if a member on here would like them at a much lower price, they are boxed and im willing to take to them to the nearest drop point for a courier set up by you if you're interested.

  17. Hi all. I've gone and bought a 2005 M5 to have some fun. I've bought it to do some work too and as a beginner would like some advice and tips as I learn the car. First off is the alloys. I'd like to buy some new ones as these have been repaired and need replacing. Tyres are good so ideally would like to keep them. Current tyres are as follows:- Front 245/35/20 Rear 285/30/20 There are some chunky spacers on them (I haven't measured them yet and I don't yet know the offsets) Can anyone suggest some good wheels to reduce the spacer thicknesses? I've attached a photo of the current wheels (I don't know the name!)...
  18. Im going to have a go at respraying my four wheels on friday as they have huge chips of paint of them which keep peeling away. Ive been looking at a lot of resources of how to do a good job of it, not just slapping it on with a paint brush The paint can literally peel off in some places near to where it already has and when it comes away its almost like a plastic coating or something and is peeling away to black. Will I need to get all of this off with sand paper before hand and if I don't will it eventually keep peeling away the new paint as well?? Thanks.
  19. can anyone work out the size at the question mark (?), apparently this is officially classed as the outer rim depth (size) for ordering identical replacement lip.... thanks in advance. (based: HULL E.R.Y. 'HU9' England/UK)
  20. 172 Wheels upgrade on E60 SE

    Hello guys, I am the owner of a very standard 2004 520i SE , with some pretty ugly 16" alloys and I've been looking for quite some time to upgrade them. I've found a set of genuine 19" staggered 172 Spider alloys on fleebay, in a good condition for a fair price I would say. I know these wheels are on the M sport, but will they fit on my car without any problems? Is the ride height going to increase or is it going to be the same as with the 16"s. To complete the look I am going to change the bumpers and side skirts to M sport ones so the car won't look too bad Thanks in advance.
  21. As the title suggests, I'm after a set of classics for my 530d M Sport. 19 or 20 inch. Have to be genuine and in decent nick. Just love Alpinas. On my E46 convertible, i had BMW style 32's, as they were the closest look to the Alpina softlines without costing the earth. Dunno if this is a stupid place to post this request, but thought i'd give it a go! My 19" spiders are pretty much as new. No scuffs or blemishes at all. I think they look very nice on the car, in fact probably the best match for the E60, but i prefer Alpinas. I can post pics if there is anyone out there Cheers
  22. I got my E39 M5 back today after sending it down to Platinum Alloy Wheel Solutions in Swindon for a full wheel refurb. I believe these chaps used to trade as Lepsons at one point but are no longer part of that set up. Anyway I left the car with them as I haven't got any spare alloys to trot about on - and dropped it off Monday morning then picked it up this afternoon. First reaction is that the job seems like good quality (although I have not had a wheel refurb before) but they are a bit dark for my liking, almost as if the centre portion of the wheels are anthracite and the rim is a brighter chrome finish. Still, they apparently only do one shade of 'shadow chrome' so it was that or nothing. With any luck I'll get used to i,t although can't help thinking I would have preferred them to look a touch more like the factory shadow chrome, with a bit more sparkle. Here's a few pics - feedback welcome.
  23. How much are these worth

    Just seen a set of GENUINE 18" AC Schnitzers Type II for sale with fresh continental contact 3's all around for what seems like a real bargain... before i buy them how much are these wheels worth? ive seen type III go on the bay for around 600 without tyres but im guessing theyre probably a little more popular although type IIs are more my taste. Thanks!
  24. Hi I'm new to this forum, as I have just bought a BMW 530d (to be picked up on Saturday) which has aftermarket wheels on (see picture attached).

They are 18inch MV2 wheels with the tyre size is 245 40 zr18, can you help me, the auction is finishing tonight,...will they fit, will they look good, etc, etc....help...!
