Re: NEW BBS CH-R RIM PROTECTOR REMOVAL?

Yes, the BBS rings stay put.

I can't recommend any, as I've only ever used the rings supplied with the wheels. I've never needed to look into replacements, sorry.

Re: NEW BBS CH-R RIM PROTECTOR REMOVAL?

I'm using the BBS aluminium rings and supplied spring clips.

Re: Is this a COMBOX? 2010 125i Coupe

I believe that's your TCU, which controls stuff like Bluetooth, BMW Assist, etc.

Do you also have a MULF 2 under it?

Re: NEW BBS CH-R RIM PROTECTOR REMOVAL?

I didn't use any heat, carefully cold pulled. Heat is a good idea though. 17" or 18" is the sweet spot for ride/road-holding/handling. Get them from wherever is cheapest, they're usually around £1,400 new, plus sensors, tyres and balancing. Mine will be for sale at some point, keep an eye on the Cla...

Re: 120d Xdrive judder

Without looking I don't know unfortunately. I just had a look at the tyre sizes this afternoon after reading the post. It is a 2013 120d x-drive m-sport. Has the standard m-sport wheels. I suspect they're 8" rears then. If that is the case, you can't balloon a 255/35 on (245mm max), but a 225/40/18...

Can I replace the rear tyres with 225/40/18 to match the front wheels or due to the width do I need to order 255/35/18 Pirelli P7.
What width wheels do you have? Are the rears 8" or 8.5" wide?

Evolve were the pioneers, P Torque/Bw Chiptune/etc are just as good though. Where do you live roughly?

Re: New Owner Old Problems - 123d

I'd check the 3 turbo actuators (8, 9 & 10) for starters:

Air filter and fuel filter are worth crossing off your check-list too.

No funny noises? Boost leaks? EGR and DPF clean and clear?

Re: Stretched Tyres now MOT Fail

Sorry digging up an old thread, but looking at the guide above I should be able to fit 235 tyres on the 261m 7.5 wheels on the front of my 135i. So why does nobody seem to run 235 on a 1 series with 18"'s will they rub against the struts or arch liner? Yes, they'd safely fit on the rims. The issue ...

Re: E81 118d wheel fitment help needed

The rears are going to be quite pokey, is that what you want? You could go 8" all round for a more OEM fit, if you wanted.

On a 118d I'd probably go for 8" ET40 with 225/40/18 92y fitted all round, but it's personal preference.

Re: E81 118d wheel fitment help needed

ET40 is a nice sensible fitment, they should be fine. If you can confirm wheel widths (8", 9", whatever) we could be 100% sure.

Re: New wheels fitting/alignment advice

He's not wrong, wandering away from BMW's recommendations (to try to tuck in ill-fitting wheels) is a compromise. If the Hunter computer says make the ride height XYZmm using ballast, make sure they do it. Retarded/lazy operators will sometimes just skip that absolutely vital stage. https://uploads....

Re: New wheels fitting/alignment advice

There's nothing they can do to help at the front, at the rear ask for -2 degrees camber to tuck the tops in a little, they're still going to look pokey though. Make sure they weight the car down correctly with ballast before they start, the alignment shouldn't be set at an arbitrary height, it's car...

Re: M235i - M4 LCA's with H&Rs on 19" wheels advice

The clearance won't be any tighter at the rim, but the tread would be 5mm closer of course. You look to have plenty of clearance between strut and tread though? I don't have a photo handy, sorry.

Re: Drive Train Error - m140i

Crank position sensors are quite common on B58's, might have to pop the stock exhaust on and have them check it.
