DO NOT GO TO TAT ON TYRES Shop TO GET OR FIX WHEELS

TAT ON TYRES Shop in Kowloon bay near mega box
https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&l...,263.1,,1,2.55

I have been going to Tat On to change and fix tyres for the pass 5 years and last week I change my F10 wheels and tyre which I got from USA which god knows why they charge me $1000 just to change 4 wheels, he say it is this much because it is 20" which is bull shit.
I change my Stepwgn 18" tyres 1 month ago at the same place and change only $400 for the set. just because it is a BMW car dose not mean you charge more.

The main thing was the balanced my wheels, they did not take out the old leads on the wheels before balancing it so I had vibration on all 4 wheel at speed of 90+

this weekend I went to do alignment at Oscar Pro and they did a very good job with the alignment and balance of all wheels and now are all fixed and car drives like its on rails now.

I never get wheels from ebay dont trust them.
I only get parts from John on www.5Series.net Forums
http://www.motorcepts.com/

also I get all my tyres and rims from tirerack so far I am very happy with the items I got.
I hate OEM wheels way to heavy, even M wheels which I have a set of 18" M wheel and the weight is 236lbs wheels and tyres. My new wheels are much lighter about 200lbs wheels and tyres.

I brought my MINI to Tat On (Mong Kok) for changing a new set of PSS tires last month.
The c-fu there is nice and helpful.
