Snik, link to the tire info? I don't have my phone on me at work and was gonna look up those tires...

EDIT: Nevermind found your thread... I think I'll just hold out till I can get the tires, thought I read them to be 225/40's in the texts. I dont think 225/45 will help much and cost to mount and balance wouldnt make it worth it.
Will e60 ones fit, do they have different hub sizes or anything..?

Yes. E60 is same hub size. E60 wheels on my sedan right now, perfect fit on the hub.
+1000000 on what John said. It really isn't too many threads when u really look into it.

17" wheels are just 2, but I have three 17" tires for sale.

The DPE R05 is a set of 4, non M offsets but 19x8/10 I plan on fitting them to the M temporarily once I score spacers and back tires. So that's not for sale quite yet.

I have a extra pair of 235/35/19s I won't be needing.
1 set is Goodyear. The other Michelins, iirc.

Theyre not talking like a Euro heads, no specs on bolt spacing listed, so i wouldnt waste my time.
scan the rest of the forum and find a set.

My Ride: a dinosaur
Its been a good weekend (+1), painted my high beam bowls black, cleaned and fixed my interior (C Pillars were starting to peel off) and made an Aux-in cable which i just finished running through my center console and through the cigarette lighter. I need to find a grommet or something to make the cigerette lighter hole look better, its a 1" hole for a 3.5mm audio cord, looks a little bad.

Can it be December yet? I'm ready to move already...

On that note... anyone have good info on a car cover company? Looking to invest in on since my car will be outside now (in a covered spot) and I wanna keep as much of the elements off as possible

My Ride: station wagon
I bought both of mine thru Bavauto. I have the Noah (e30) and the Evolution 4 (for my wagon) Like both of them, both easy to put on and off. The Noah is a little heavier duty but both are easy to put on and off. My 1st Evo 4 had worn through in a few spots after a few years on my wagon, but I think that was because I covered it with the roof rack on so it was more stressed than it would have been normally my second is actually an e39 version and works great with my roof rack on.

Be aware though in this area and with dark cars the covers will do a great job of keeping off most dirt, but over time they absorb micro dust so when it rains the dust washes through the cover and sits on the car, not a big deal, but you will need to dust the car when taking the cover off. I assume that is the trade off with a breathable car cover, over time it does collect micro dust, but if you are in a covered area the rain issue may not be as big a deal

Mine are not bad with swirls and scratches, on the silver car you probably wouldn't notice anyway, but the e30 is dark red and I never noticed anything extreme from the cover, they are soft on the inside almost like a flannel so unless you put it on with the car dirty you are unlikely to get any significant scratching. The mirco dust I was talking about is very very fine and even when it builds up I dont think it would cause any damage.
