See - with me that's three for #3!

Also looks like I found a hookup for new Vredsteins on my M3 - the prior owner, now a friend, has a great neighbor who owns a shop. His father has them on his 535i and his brother on his E55 AMG Benz. Great quality and value too! Nice find Brettski!

Thanks for the feedback on the wheels guys, as RM said 3 from 3 for number 3. I guess it will come down to how much the 32s go for on eBay.

So far the only supplier of these the Vredsteins tires in Australia carry the Agricultural products, but I'll see if I can work on them to bring in a set with their next shipment.

Well the 32s went for crazy money, and I think I might sit tight on doing anything until I get closer to actually needing some new rubber. In the mean time I'll keep an eye on EBay and see what comes up. Most of the genuine 18" wheels are for the X3, X5 or 3 series. At this time it also appears that Vredestein car tires aren't represented here in Australia at all. Maybe I'll have to look at something like the Toyo Proxes T1R in 285/40ZR18 (Rear) & 255/45ZR18 (Front).
I am pretty sure that Marti5 is running a similar tire on his 735i, so hopefully it will be good to go. Anyone else had experience of the T1R rubber?

Well that stinks after all your efforts. I know I had several misses and unavailable sources before finding a good price for now on a Southern California store's web site. The shipping is a little pricey but hey, tires are big and I need them shipped across the U.S. I am giving my local connection a chance to match or beat the price. Also getting a lot of wifey flak over getting 4 new tires instead of 2 -(sidewall has a deep cut on one of the fronts that has me uneasy.

Anyway - good luck with Toyos for now Brettski and keep an eye out for Vredsteins (maybe drop them an email?? They might love the business opportunity in a new market and might just reward you...). As the company grows, I can't imagine why they'd not do some business down under! Letvua know how you like the new Toyos whn you get them. Good luck -

Just under $1200, plus there would have been another $160 for delivery. A little rich for my current finances.

Brettski PM in 5 mins from me with details on how to contact my tire dealer who I'm heading over to see now as to whether wider rears will fit on my M3. I told him you have a 7 series and he said he apparently has multiple contacts in Australia so get a quote before you go Toyos after all this...

So what was the outcome MR, what size can you shoe horn under the M3, and what size rims are you running on the back?
Just how much heat are you going to get from the fun police over this?

Well this topic just revived itself in a obtuse way. One of the two contacts for Vredestein in Australia only imports tires for classic cars (the other contact only does agricultural tires), and who originally rejected my attempts for him to bring in a set of Ultratrac Sassante with one of his orders, just happened to have a daughter in the same ballet classes as my little girl. I just happened to sit next to him tonight at their end of year ballet presentation and only discovered who he was by chance, so now after getting to know him and a bit of a chat, he is willing to include a set with one of his coming orders.

So, am I supposed to have these tires or what?

Yay! Go forth and get those tires. As for me, the 295 30 ZR 20's fit, but rub wihlth a passenger in back so I'm staying with the 275's and love them! Great deal for you!

SO, what's the general consensus on width front and back for the E38?

Must concentrate

Dooh!!!!!!!!
I need to get my act together. I have been looking for a set of used 18" or 19" rims to go on the E38, so that I can then get some of these tires. Anyway, a set of Styling 92 showed up, 19x9 + 19x10 (just the size I want) on Ebay starting at $200, I misread the finishing time and was away with the inlaws for an early Christmas function at the real closing time. Nobody bid on them, and the guy has turned around and sold them to someone else who rang him after the auction had failed. Doube Dooh!!! Can someone come over and help kick me in the butt??
