  1. Hi everyone. Thinking of getting separate wheels for winter for my 520d. Ive currently got the staggered 18 inch tyre set up (245/40/18 front and 275/45/18 rear). Am I correct in thinking that I could get 18 inch wheels with 245/40 all around, and if I wanted to drop down to 17, I could do this and have 225/55 all round? I could be tempted to drop down a size just because of cost really. My car has TPMS so I understand that I need to buy wheels with this sensor on there, or I can get them fitted? The car also has rear integral active steering, but I don't think this will be affected by dropping down to 17 or even changing from the staggered 18 will it?
  2. I have here 4 x BMW Style 328 wheels for sale. I used these as my winter set on my 5 series which I no longer have. The wheels have Nokian W3s on them: 245/45 R18 100V XL. They have about 6-7mm tread left on them all round. They are non-run flats and really made the car drive smoothly and quietly. I would like to point out that one of the alloys has a small crack in it. This developed in the 1st year I had them and resulted in some air loss at the time. I had it welded (see photo) and there have been no further issues subsequently eg air leaking. I am aware that some people prefer not to run a welded alloy, but I just want to be as open about this as possible. There are also some minimal scuffs on one of the wheels and the BMW hub caps have some signs of weathering. I actually didn't use those ones, opting to use the ones that were on my lease car instead as they were brand new. I am based near Uxbridge, London. I don't really want to get involved with getting such large items couriered so these are for collection only please I am looking for £750.00 £700.00 £575.00 ono NOW £500.00 Any questions, please feel free to ask. Thanks, Kamal
  3. I have a set of wheels with winter tyres that I have used for two winters for a couple of months each time. They have a set of 245/45 R18 Pirreli Sottozero. They have depths of around 2* 5mm and 2 * 4mm approximately. There are no scuff marks on the wheels. There are however slight signs of wear that can be seen in the pictures. I have had a repair done to 2 wheels that were on the near side, this was due to pot hole damage, this work was completed by Prestine wheels, Woburn Sands, these are the authorised BMW wheel repair centre. I have the invoice available. This did not involve any welding. I do not want to get involved in posting such a large item so ideally collection only, I am based near Milton Keynes. Any questions please ask. £600.00 the set.

  6. Hi folks, Due to a change in circumstances I'm now living in a rented farmhouse that is accesed via a very bumpy mile long single track road comprising gravel, dirt, manure, stones etc. I only bought my approved used 5 series several weeks beforehand otherwise I may have went for an X3 or equivalent, as road surface aside, I'm concerned about the suspension despite planning on driving slowly up the track (I don't have the VDC) and also I am concerned about the ground clearance. (thankfully it's an SE model but clearance is still a concern) I would loathe to trade in my new bimmer at this stage as I'm loving it and have committed to pro sat nav and folding mirror retrofits in the coming weeks. I'd also rather avoid investing in a second "run around" car. So, I've been researching options for winter wheels and tyres in the hope this may help alleviate the above concerns. I'm currently on 225/55R17 run flats. My research to date has suggested investing in a new set of wheels & tyres for the winter (especially due to the single track farm road I now need to use on a daily basis), but that I may want to consider keeping these year round until I move house again. Specifially, 'Continental Winter Contact TS830P' tyres and accompanied by 17" X10 wheels by Uniwheel. I've also read about low profile tyres versus high profile tyres, and higher sidewalls to help prevent the alloys being scraped by the larger stones on the track. I'm out of my depth with this though I'd be grateful for your informed views and own experience of the above scenario and any recommendations, not just on the winter wheel/tyre swap, but whether or not an executive saloon can really be used on such roads at all? Best, Ben

    Winter wheels/tyres

    I decided that this year I would make the effort to swap to a set of winter tyres and in my bid to remain on the right side of my insurance company I thought I'd give them a call to see what the score is. They don't care if I change or not on my standard 18"s, however if I swap wheels to a set of 17"s they want some extra money on the grounds it is a 'modification'. I think this seems a bit stupid on the grounds I would be fitting smaller wheels, that were available on the car from the manufacturer. I know they are out to make money but I can't see how it can cost me more if it is free to change the tyres on the standard wheel. It's all fairly irrelevant anyway, since the cost of notifying them is about an order of magnitude less than the price difference between 17" winters and 18" winters. Anyone else going through this?
