Urgent Please Help...

Hi,

Just fitted some more 18" alloys/tyres (225/40/18) to my E46 318ci (2000) and taken it for a test drive and I can hear clunking like something is rubbing, we did install some tyre pressure monitor valves inside, could these be the reason? I have pumped the pressures up to 34/35 PSI

Any help or advice would be most appreciated.

well, is it a clunk, or a rub?

my first guess with no info, it the technician that installed the tire pressure monitoring system dropped one of the old rubber valve stems in the tire.

Update: Clicking sound was coming from the rear so we replaced the back ones and put them on the front and stuck originals on the back and all was well, so its not the tyres pressure valves, must be the alloys/tyres themselves...

Can't see any marks, or rubbing... any suggestions?

Just taken all the wheels off and replaced the originals back on.

Does seem to be some rubbing appearence on each new tyre. Were gonna buy some 10mm spacers, although would I have to purchase longer wheel studs?
