rubbing

Nine4surfah, does your rear wheels rub on any part of the fenders with 4 people seated in your car? I went to my tire/rim dealer and he said that those 9.5" 19" rims will rub.

About 3 days ago during some heavy rain I rolled over a significant size pot hole. The pot hole was at least 1.5 inches deep but wasn't visible because it was submerged. I felt the sudden jolt at the seat of my pants as I rolled over the hole and quickly inspected the wheel as soon as I arrived home. other than a minor "road rash" on the rim, the wheel was not bent in anyway.

My wheels have a 38mm offset and there is probably a 1/4 inch gap between the rear fender and the edge of the wheel rim. I had 2 adult passenger in the back and had no rubbing issues.

I'm planning on purchasing the BMW Mobility kit or any product similar to it.

Ok Nine4surfah,

I just received my 162 wheels from the dealers; Fabuluuulooous!!! I have ordered the Hankook Ventus tires; and also the M Mobility Kit.

Did you wax your rims before mounting them?
Does the m Mobility Kit fit under the trunk carpet in that Hidden compartment?
Do you need to have a jack to use the Mobility Kit?

I waxed the two front wheels with regular car wax. Although they appear to stay cleaner longer, the wheel still collect alot of brake dust.

I haven't purchased the mobility kit yet buy I did see it at my local "stealership" and it appears as if the kit woul fit under the luggage hatch.
