New wheels on my E90 - 225's (MV4) in Matt Gray

Hi,

Got some pics of my new wheels for you, it's from an iphone, so please bear with the quality (lack of it). I had it aligned (Hunter)/balanced at Discount Tyres in Worthing (they are just superb and come highly recommended)

Just whilst I was on the motorway, I got the Red tire warning light ? I pulled over at a filling station and looked at all tyres, they looked fine ? My only guess is that since I switched from 17"s, it triggered this warning as something's changed ? How do I reset this warning ? Do you guys think there might be an actual issue? considering the 225's are known to crack ? I was advised to keep the tyre pressure at 2.8 bar for the front's and 3.1 bar for the rears, all tyres are RFT's ? Does this sound right ? Let me know what you think, thanks for viewing

Good colour combo. Warning nothing to worry about as stated. Mine reset itself after warning, but if not as suggested check manual, and enjoy!

As the others said just try reseting it, I also had to reset mine when I went from 17 to 18" wheels and tires.

Very nice wheels

Cheers guys, got the wheels from Nottinghamshire, the seller was awesome, the alloys were in mint condition and went straight onto the car. I know some dont like dark wheels on light coloured cars on account of it looking a bit gothic, but I must say I love the wheels, now for some performance grills and blacklines, that's my mods complete (for now :-))

Looks good - I love dark grey wheels, I just don't have the balls to do it on my car which is dark grey too...

If you are in SE London or pass by Brighton anytime, gimme a shout mate, we could swap to see how they'll look on your car, dark grey on dark grey doesn't sound right I feel

Think the 225s are my favourite wheel. Very rare on an e90 - looks great!

Hope the don't crack on you though
