Re: Wheels & Tyres FAQ- please read before posting

Does anyone know if the width size of an alloy can have an impact on the wheel bearing? My car has come back with an advisory for the front wheel bearing on its MOT, its running 8.5J aftermarket all round on my 2012 1 series. Its under warranty and this is covered, but wondering if BMW will kick up ...

Nice! They look identical to the Japan Racing JR25 I bought!

Re: F20 125d Onset of turbo lag

Sorry to bring this back up. I also suffer from this on my 125D. I have had a service today and BMW have come back and marked an “issue” of “exhaust blow near turbo” could this be one of the problems? Annoyingly they didn’t tell me this at the dealership to enquiry further. It was only when I got ho...

The ET40 set will fit nicely, aggressive but no contact. I would run 245/35/18 all round.

The ET35 will look a bit silly and might rub, avoid those imo.
Many thanks Marco, will look to switch the fronts to the above tyre size once they're low on tread!

Re: Buckled Wheels!!!

Appreciate the response Marco and agreed. I will have to cough up the money! With regards to sizing for an order on the Konig Interform. Can you direct me to which ones I should be looking to get based on what I said previously. I can see it will be the 18 x 8J, am I just going for the standard fit...

Re: BMW 1 series 2013 1.6D Exhuast Rattle

Had the same issue. BMW replaced it under warranty. It was a flexi joint issue as mentioned above. Apparently the job cost 1.8K.

Re: Buckled Wheels!!!

£1,000 sounds about right to be honest, mine were significantly more than that. Buy cheap = buy twice. :( Appreciate the response Marco and agreed. I will have to cough up the money!

Re: Buckled Wheels!!!

Are these wheels made from clay?!? Brie. I wouldn't throw good money after bad replacing them or having them refurbished, I'd get some nice tough forged wheels instead. Apologies for jumping in on this thread but have been effected by a similar situation recently. All 4 alloys buckled. I’ve had the...
