Hey guys,
Just got a set of winter tires off ebay. They are already installed on rims.
I am wondering if I should have them rebalanced and installed in the shop or should they be ready to go as they are?

Thanks

I just bought wheels and tires from eBay and have the same question.
here they are for my 1998 528i
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...TRK%3AMEWA%3AIT

Paid $600.00 plus free shipping. I have a question on the more worn tires in the auction I won, should I put those tires in back or front for winter?

Have any pics of the set you bought?

Send a message via AIM to Kevin325i
More worn = in the back.

Add about 150-200 lbs of sad. I'll be sporting two 75s this winter.
