Hey from the nooooooob
Hey all.... greeting from south florida, although orignally a NYC chap... anyways, the specs are
New wheels (See below)
As with most BMW's, just recently had my glove box fake leather cover FALL OFF! I had to gorilla glue that back together using some binder clips to hold it... looks fine now.
Just got some nice 17" rims, kept the 225's wheels in fron, and decided to try some 245's in the back for better traction on hard turns. I guess I dont mind any understeer, but the problem is, now on hard lefts I heard the wheel slightly brushing the body panel. So my little tire guy, who obviously doesnt want to take an old tire back, suggests simply putting in a spacer in the reas suspension. My body guy agrees. Well, from most other forum people an various sites, this seems to be one of the all-time worst advices. I am still not sure why spacers are bad for cars, and who uses them then, but all I know is, most people tell me to roll the edge up and that will help. However that doent seem to be an easy process either.
What a pain. Just wanted some nice wheels with better performance, and all I have is more crap to deal with, more noise it seems from the wheel contact on the ground, and this rubbing problem. I think next time I will stay with the 225's when this is through. Not worth it.
Otherwise, the car and engine drives like a dream as always.
