My back tire blew up last night. I gotta get some 265 19"s today. Does anyone have any available? I'm running Falken 452's right now. I just bought a new front one 2 days ago (!) so I'd like to stay with that brand if possible.

Are they 265/30/19s? If so I might be interested in taking them off your hands soon if you still have them in a few weeks. One of my back tires was damaged by a pothole and I'm not sure if my wheel and tire insurance will cover the tire since they said it "looks like it might be curb rash" (which is complete BS).

Yeah, it looks like its going to be a tight fit with the offsets you're running. But the extra rubber of 275's look so good.

So my tires are on, BUT the baboons at discount tire stripped two of my lugs. Now, i'm having to roll with a lug missing. I guess I'll stop by Vorshlag and pick up some lugnuts for 10mm spacers.

Does anyone have two I could purchase?

I hate to have to deal with specialty shops for things as basic as tires, but i've had too many bad experiences with routine jobs.

I misspoke. They stripped a bolt. I'm thinking of going ahead and doing a stud conversion. It may help insulate me from this kinda craziness in the future.

Does anyone in the area know a lawyer that they've had a good experience with? I probably need someone that's good with contracts/consumer law. Please PM me with any contact info.

Wednesday night / Thursday morning around midnight, I was headed home on 121 Business in Lewisville when a black e92 passed me as I was leaving a stoplight. I didn't get a good look at it, but I think it had some decals on the front. Anyone know this car? It sounded great, and I'm curious what exhaust it has.

I've seen a black, lowered 2011 E92 335i running around with a windshield banner at the top that reads "NEMESIS" or something like that.
