I had some chrome 17 inch niche bahns on my 92 325i 4 door, and now i have some 19 inch konig trantrums..
well heres what happened...there is this one spot where i sometimes turn left to go across the median on the highway and when i get on the high way while im still turning i kick in 2nd and let the car get a little sideways..well on the 17's it would give a nice little chirp and my rear end would slide out a little, nothing im not capable of controlling, well today when my new wheels were on, i did the same thing i always do but this time the car shotout towards the side of the road and the whole car got sideways in both lanes and i kept the wheel turned toward the way i was sliding and put my foot on the gas to accelerate out of the slide, i over rotated and went the other way then the other way again so finally i slammed the brakes on and got control! is this normal when you up size your wheels on a rwd car? i am more familiar with a fwd car and am still getting used to having rwd...just thought i would ask! thanks!
