I just suggest you roll um to be safe, no harm in that and its fairly inexpensive... but its your ride so whatever.

I would not go to Zimbrick, why give those aholes the business? Tires Plus will charge you $100 to do it on 19's but they've always been good with my rims, no scratching or anything. You could always try Monona Tire, I hear good things about them. Or you can try Discount Tire over in Middleton next to Biaggi's.

I also know there is a Tire Rack recommended installer at 2583 University Ave, just don't know what/who that is, think it might be the Import Auto Clinic I've seen over there maybe?
I might take it to Discount Tire. They mounted tires on my wheels for the Audi that is now on the GTI and didn't scratch it up. Since my friends dont work at tires plus anymore, I don't trust them all too much.

As for rubbing, we can test fit the wheels and tires next week when I get them and go from there. If I need to roll them I can do it that day too. Rolling is easy peasy if you know what you're doing.

Offset for the rears are 37 I think and 30 for the fronts. I think Seth might be right. It'll be real close. Not too worried because I can roll my fenders at home. The key is HEAT so the paint doesn't crack. Other than that you'd have to be a moron to really eff it up lol. We'll find on by next Wednesday or whenever my wheels get here.

My tires are continental dw's...heard they ride really nice as is minimal or no road noise and handles ok. I don't plan on tracking my car so Im more concerned with ride comfort. Plus I got the set of four for cheap because of my hook up ! Tire rack would've cost me 900 shipped. I got it for less! But I can't disclose price.

Nice let me know how it all goes. My rear offset is 35 so if urs doesn't fit mine won't. I don't think well even need to roll cause I have 275 35 18 and doesn't rub. Going up to 275/30/19 is basically the same with a very slight increase in overall diameter

Can't wait to get new shoes...hey does anyone know where to get tires mounted without them fucking anything up? I don't want my new wheels scratched. You guys trust Zimbrick?

you should sell it and get the eurocharged tune cuz it now includes a flash at home tool so you can go from stock to tune without installing anything.

Wow, a lots changed since I've been on this site!

Noel, I need to change my rear tires this summer. Very interested in how the 275's work for you.

Vu, That sucks man. I never know you went through that many HPFP's. At least yours is under warranty. I had my pump go out during this winter and just got done replacing it with the new model BMW came out with in Feb with serial number ending in 943. WHAT A PITA!!! One battle after another replacing it. Crossing my fingers that they actually solved the problem. The new pump was a little heavier then the old one so maybe more metal instead of plastic is used.

Yeah, I try to do all my own work. Were all your other pumps replaced before February? The 943 version is the 3rd version. I had the 2nd version installed by BMW under warranty last May. Needless to say it didn't last me to long. BMW is suppose to replace your fuel pressure sensors when they install a new HPFP, so I decided not to replace them this time.
