I will not be tracking the car. I would like the car to preform well and have a reasonable ride.
Should I look at getting 18" wheels? If i go with 18" wheels should I find a set of the 313 in 18" or go with a non BMW Wheel? For the tires should I get tires that are not run flat?
I have the runflat 19's with 29,500 miles. The roads in Va beach are horrible. Potholes etc. Tires are worn excessively on inside due to front end alignment out (they say) and r getting changed monday. I like the tires and rims but potholes/bumps sound like sledge hammers underneath the car. I am glad I got the extended rim/tire warranty as well. Had 3 tires and 1 rim changed so far under warranty. All rears. Good luck!
