    Hello all, My car is due 1st tires. I currently have factory fitted good years but they have always struggled a lot with the torque. Car has 19" wheels. Was thinking of fitting same again but non run flats and saving £30 a tire. What's your thoughts?

    Hi, last summer I`ve change front tires (225/45/17) Brigstone Potenza with ContiSportContact 5 runflats. Now I`m looking to buy tires for rear axle (255/40/17). I want to buy the same tires like the front, but Continental doesn't made SportContact 5 in this size 255/40/17. They have only...

    Hi guys, I bought my 8 with this original 37"8J ET13 and 9.5J ET25 wheels on. I like them but I think they need at least 2 cm spacers or more to come to the edge and look more aggressive... also on 8J there were tire dimensions 245/45 and on rear there was 275/35. They look "fat" on front so I...

    Hi, I've just returned from a dealer who told me that this is last time they swap my summer tires to winter and they are not prepared to do it any more due to "safety concerns". The more elaborated reason he gave me was about damaging tire rim if performed too often. I was so surprised...

    I am the owner of an X5 40d e70 2010 which has the original 20" wheels fitted with wide summer tires. I need this car to get me through safely muddy B roads and icy A roads in the upcoming winter months, and visiting the occasional muddy build site or grassy field come into the equation too...

    So I burst my two tires a few days ago after I hit a pothole and now need to change all 4 with new tires (old tires were bad anyway). I also checked today my rims just to make sure they are not bend and the person who checked them said that I should put tires in rear 225 and 215 in front...

    I changed to winter tires (17 inch wheels 205mm in width all 4) almost a month ago and everything was fine until recently... a few days ago, I noticed some strange sound from the front (can hear in the cabin). It sounds like it's coming from my tires, because the sound changes depending on the...

    Is there a difference in ride comfort between normal and XL (extra load) tires? I am considering buying Hankook v12's but their 255 40 17 tire only comes in XL version. Since my e39 is M sport I dont need it to be any harder then it already is. I drive city most of the time. Thanks.

    Hi there, I recently had two new tires on the front of my 530d 04 plate E60. I went down slightly profile wise to a 35 profile from a 45 just for the simple fact that I already had them laying about! Now when I pull away the brake pedal pulses and the abs tries to work even though obviously it...

    Hi All, As the title states what PSI should be tires be at? I have red light on my display stating low tire pressure so it's either a really slow puncture or my trip to london and back hasn't treated my tires very well lol. I drive a 2010 320d Saloon. Thanks in advance
