Da Bull... LOOK HERE!!

LOL! I need some input again, if you dont mind. I remember you said you had 18's on youir 5 er. I am picking up some 18 inch M5 wheels next Wed. and I need to know what size of tires I will need. Any reccommendations? I will post a pic of one in my v garage. They are brand new in the box, that I am buying locally from a dude selling them cheap. Real cheap. Do you have any idea what they are worth? I believe there are oem for 1998 M5's and probably others. Thanks.

I have Fuzion's 245/40/18's on all four corners. They fit with no problems and the tires are reasonably priced. So far I like 'em. The wheels are 18x8"ers. There was someone that bought some M5 (or mehbe M3, cant remember) recently, maybe they or someone else will pipe in on cost of those. I like the looks of those.

Thanks. Im getting the for $300 brand new, still in the box. That is a pic of one of the actual rims. Should I try tire rack or something? Im not in a hurry to get em on, cause Im going to park the car as soon as the snow starts flying, eerrrr. I live in NH, so it gets pretty brutal out here. I dont want the salt and the elemnts to get to em, if you know what I mean.

I want to post pics of my car and stuff in the v garage, but it keeps telling me my pics are too big, dont know how to fix that.

Tirerack is a decent place to get some. Edit your pictures to make the pixel size smaller, either with photo editing software, or you should be able to turn your camera down. I use photobucket.com for a lot of picture hosting. Its free and they give you the URLs at the bottom of each picture. Its pretty simple to use.

You can fit 275/35/18's in the rear with some wheels. Otherwise 265/35/18's fit on pretty much anything.
