  1. I found some NOS new beautry rings for my car and when I received them, included was a 14" ring that is from an earlier NK than mine. I have read that some of the early cars with 14" wheels use a smaller inside diameter ring bcause their steelies had a smaller inner diameter. So I got one by mistake (the vendor later sent the correct one to take care of the problem). Now I have this one NOS NLA ring. Only one, unfortunately, but if anyone has a use for it I'll be happy to send it for the cost of shipping only.
  2. Someone on the board purchased subject tires several months ago but hadn't had them long enough to form an opinion...do you--or anyone else with these tires--have an opinion, negative or positive, about 'em? My pore ole' AVID T4s are on their last legs (two bald, two thin) and I've gotta get new tires--the Kuhmo Solstus tires are the only brand I've heard of in the 185/70x13 size...the Achilles tires are H rated (rare in that size) so must be good in heat rating, but I would like to know how they are in wet/dry handling. And if anyone has experience with other mystery brand tires in that size, please feel free to chime in with experience and where to buy. TIA mike
  3. Sorry to ask. I know this has question has probably been asked a 1k times. I'm looking at a set of these and wonder if they will fit. Can someone please enlighten me? I've already searched and read 14 pages of articles and couldn't find a definite answer. Thanks. Jason
  4. Anyone on the board have experience with Falken Sincera SN828 tires? Our local Discount Tire place has 'em for under $45 cash/carry, and my tire situation is getting a little desperate....and I hate to buy mystery brand tires...At least I've heard of Falken tires, and they don't sound Chinese. TIA mike
  5. Hi, Who can help me to find Alpina 4 x 100 size 6j x 15" and 7j x 15" weight? Only the wheel without tire. Thank you before
  6. I was searching for new tires for the old girl and came across this ebay deal with Discount tire http://www.ebay.com/itm/360885320146?_trksid=p2059210.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Not sure if it has been posted already but its for 195/60/14 Falken Azenis RT-615 tires. $300 shipped after the promo code is used. I just ordered a set for my car and it all went through, I should have them by the end of the week. I'll post up the build dates of the tires when I get them.
  7. So, I thought I made a really great score on a set of old Michelin XAS on craigslist. I briefly checked the tires out, and they're amazingly pliable, almost no miles, almost like new. So I picked them up. It was only later, on closer examination, that I figured out the problem. It's hard to see in the pics below, but in several spots the inner carcass has "bubbles" where it has basically separated from the tread and belts. I think this just happens with 30-40 year old tires, no matter how well preserved they might appear. I know that these are tube tires, but even with tubes, I cannot see how they're usable..... caveat emptor! Has anyone else seen this issue before? Andy74tii
  8. Anybody had a bent wheel repaired? Can someone lead to any place in San Diego that repair Alloy/Aluminum wheel(s)? Jessie Jake.
  9. I searched for a while but found nothing on the site. I keep snapping off lug bolts and it's not due to incorrect tightening. I think it's these cheap studs I'm using. Anyone know where to buy some good quality studs for less than $8.50 PER STUD like on I.E.?
  10. Does any body have a few pics of a 185/55R15 Tire mounted to a 15x7 rim on their '02? Maybe a side view to show fitment? I know that the tire fits (it should have a very slight "stretched" look from what i can estimate) but if anybody is running this set up, a few pics wouldn't hurt. Cheers
  11. I am up for new Tyres (sorry, Aussie spelling!) I currently have195/50/15 with standard height, but higher rate (stiffer) springs. I am considering purchasing some 195/55/15 tyres to better fill the guards and to gain a little more compliance in the ride on the less than smooth Sydney Roads. I have done several searches but not found much actual feedback. Has anyone run 195/55/15 tyres with a standard height set up without experiencing excessive rubbing? My left tyre currently scuff the inner guard on a full lock left turn, but I think I can live was this. I also have scuff marks on the rear of the front guards, but I am not sure if that is from a previous owner, when the car had lowered springs. I am concerned that the taller profile 195/55 might rub. I am pretty sure the rears will be ok as previously with the lowered springs the tyres sat inside the guards comfortably without rubbing so at standard height it should be ok. The rims have the standard backspace of 4.5 inch (24mm offset). Guards are standard, unrolled.
  12. Waiting for my tax return for full resto. I stripped the purple crud that was on them and hit them with a rattlecan for a general idea. I think I know which I prefer, just looking for opinions. or TK
  13. I'm looking for a new set of 195/50 r15's and have narrowed it down to the BF Goodrich G-Force sport Comp-2 or the Yokohama S-Drive. I know that S-Drive's have been popular with folks here and haven't heard much of anything about the BFG's. From tire rack reviews and some press articles it seems like the BFG's are great tires, and are supposedly superior to the Yokohamas. Anyone have any experience? http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=BFGoodrich&tireModel=g-Force+Sport+COMP-2&partnum=95VR5GFSPC2 http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Yokohama&tireModel=S.drive&partnum=95VR5S&vehicleSearch=false&fromCompare1=yes
  14. Just installed my restored FPS 13" bottlecap alloys with 165R13 Vredesteins. What a revelation, compared to the previous E30 bottlecaps with 195/60 14's. The steering is lighter and has gone from heavy and dead to light and communicative. The car rides great, and handling around town seems better. Granted, the 14's gave better ultimate grip, but I feel that I am finally experiencing the car as BMW intended. I recommend the "upgrade" to anyone considering it!
  15. Will the following offset work on an 02? Front: 15x6.5 +34 Rear: 15x6.5 +34 I'm hoping that spacers will do the trick. If so, what size should they be to get flush? Thanks in advance!
  16. I am thinking about investing in a new set of Michelin XAS - 165HR13 from Coker. After looking at the Web site it states the tires are Tube-type. The XAS's that came on my 74 tii were tubeless. I still have the original spare and it is tubeless. I called Coker and they said they "think" they can be used as either. My question is has anyone else purchased a set of XAS's from Coker and were they actually Tube-type tires or tubeless? Thanks Mike
  17. Would any members be able to confirm from personal experience whether this type of rim may be polished. I have seen the 13" with a polished lip which looks like a great upgrade. Uncertain whether this could be done with a 14". Thank you in advance.
  18. in very good shape - newer badges, all hand-polished, a very few minor dings. All mounting brackets present and fully functional. Asking $75 for all four, shipped to lower 48
  19. An interesting article about the longevity of tires. http://www.hagerty.com/articles-videos/Articles/2014/03/21/Shredded-Tire
  20. Hi again BMW folks. I decided to go ahead and purchase the garage-find 2002, which is 18 years dormant. The plan is to tow the car home on Friday, so today I went to the secret location and removed the plugs and squirted Marvel Mystery Oil into the cylinders. Hopefully this will keep things lubricated as I try a rolling re-hab on this car. QUESTION: Tires-easy.com is having a sale which ends Friday (they are spying on me). I was happy with my transaction on my Volvo 1800, and I think I'll buy tires again from them for the '02. So, what is the bone-stock tire size for a 75 2002 base model? Thanks for your help.
  21. I need one wheel cap. We have three.
  22. So I went to a wheel shop this weekend to buy some emails bbs rims, but had no luck since the offset was 15, it hit the back of the rim, the shop said I can only fit rims with a zero offset? Is this true? Can't I run a 15 offset with spacers? Some one she'd some light on this, I am new to the 02 forum, thanks. I'm from Pasadena, and I just purchased this 76 that has caught my for a very long tim.
  23. 16x8 16x7 w 38 offset, would they fit on my 1974 2002, what would I have to do inorder to make them fit if possible
  24. Anyone seen these? Found a set. Cheap. Trying to get details on ET and width. Somewhat period correct? Light? Good for my track tires?
  25. The answer is "not to plug"! Biggest puncture I've ever had in a tire. This was on my right rear almost new Falken ZIEX ZE329 195/60/14. Kind of noisy while driving. It was a wheel stud with the nut still on it. Merchant tire said no way could or would they even try to plug it. Good self sealing tire as there was no leakage of air until I tried to remove it.
