225/40-18 245/35-18. I'll try craigslist and the forum but i'd prefer new tires lol. American tires wont stretch my tires for me so theres no need for warranty and etc.

It's a good mentality to have. I believe that meets should be a once-in-a-while thing.
Thought about v12s but the sidewalls are really wide.

I got Falken 452s here size 265/30/19 for 188 bucks each. Came within the week. Have to order by phone though.



They're not loud for me. Even before I got the muffler delete, was pretty quiet
going to look up this site now, thanks! any local places will be good though haha

Slotted rotors is like a cheese grater slicing away thin sheets off your brake pads but for daily driving it shouldn't be a problem.

Haha I understand, at first I wanted a local shop too but they either didn't have my size or they were more expensive. I said what the hell, just order online, worth the wait. Good luck though!

If you did that means someone stole my car from my garage, I'm half a world away.

Could've been another same TiAg set up as me but he's an LCI 335.

For others that may wonder!

OEM 189 18" wheel fits:
Stoptech BBK 6/4 Pot
355mm
345mm
Took a few hrs to do this today and went smoothly, only modification needed to fit the larger calipers was the rear dust shield. Had to trim out about 1"

More pic's to follow later in the week!

Not BMW related at all, but figured for those of you who have not seen this on the news...

Shouldn't be too hard to know where this donut stunt was done.

Youtube vid:

Not sure about rules for having it show directly, so used tiny url instead.

There's also videos of them shutting down the bay bridge to do those stunts.

So many Rota wheels with Volk racing decals in PI.
FYI a rim of cigs is like $11-12 if that's cheaper in states.

Anyone have 225/19/35, 255 or 245/19/30 tires? I forget which has a narrower sidewalk Falken452 or HankookV12, I'll trade with PSS tires with like 3000 miles on them. 235/19/35, 265/19/30
