  2. This is a superb set of BMW Style 138 17" Wheels With Continental Winter Tyres to fit BMW E60 or E61. PCD 5 x 120 7.5" x 17" ET (Offset) 20 Centre Bore 72.6 Part No. 6762001 These wheels were fully refurbished in October last year in Anthracite Grey by renowned wheel refurbishers Lepsons in Gillingham, Kent. At the same time they were fitted with new centre caps and adorned with the finest winter tyres money can buy; Continental Winter Contact TS860 in 225/50/17 guise which is the BMW approved size for the E60 and E61. The wheels and tyres covered a mere 2,000 miles and are still in absolutely amazing condition, there are no curb marks or blemishes on the face at all. The wheels still gleam and have been ceramic coated for added protection. The wheels bead up in the rain and look simply superb. The wheels and tyres set me back just short of £1,100 as I wanted nothing but perfection for my car and they suited it perfectly. I'll add links below on the tyres with reviews and on Lepsons so you can see their work:- http://www.tyrereviews.co.uk/Article/Continental-WinterContact-TS860-Preview.htm http://www.tyrereviews.co.uk/Article/2018-51-Winter-Tyre-Shootout.htm https://www.lepsons.com/ I am based in Rainham, Kent and can arrange delivery at a cost. I am happy to answer any questions you may have. £575 ovno

    530i Steering help

    Hi guys. I've got a 2006 E61 530i M Sport and the steering feels kind of lazy. The only way I described it is that it feels as if one of the front tyres is flat. The tyres are good, matching Continentals and the alignment was done less than a year ago. In general it all feels a bit vague up front. Has anyone got experience with this? Any advice would eb most welcome.

    530i LCI - Low MPG

    Hi, are you trusting your on board computer or are you checking yourself when you fill up? My computer lies a lot. I have a pre-lci 530i Sport auto and my lowest mpg is 23mpg around town using premium fuel. On a run I can get mid 30's, my overall average is about 26mpg.
