    A while ago, not sure how long could be two years or so, I had the nearside rear wheel bearing changed. This year's MOT car failed due to excessive tread wear at inside of wheel, so bad that the outside edge looked great but virtually no tread at inside. I've been told that this is probably due...

  7. Prevent rust on wheel arch idea

    General BMW Discussions
    Hi It occurred to me it might be worthwhile putting in the metal gap that the plastic wheel mud guard rests on some kind of filler such as putty so that water doesn't get in and stay there, any thoughts? I eventually finished off the wheel arch painting. It looks a lot easier on YouTube,

  9. Yellow DSC & BRAKE light cause?

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    I’ll be driving my 2001 325i and all of the sudden it feels like the drivers side front wheel grabs for a second and then lets go. Then the yellow dash DSC and “Brake” light will come on and stay on until I shut the car off. They usually reset. Occasionally, when driving, the yellow DSC light...

  12. 2004 bmw e46 325ci wheel bearing or something else?

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Can a bad front wheel bearing make noise and vibration on one side of the car but no vibration in steering wheel? Left side of the car vibrates (sometimes more, sometimes less, sometimes no vibration at all) at highway speeds. Changed left side rear wheel bearing, still the same noise. I had...

  14. 2007 E93 Wheel Offsets

    Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    Could not find a definitive answer on offsets for 19" wheels for my e93 but my local tyre fitters were very helpful with advice.

  19. Wheel Refurb

    Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    So my 403M wheels are originally silver like this (don't look diamond cut because the silver paint matches the metal so closely): I could have chosen the anthracite (orbit grey?) version that isn't diamond cut, just powder coated all over but preferred silver on a black car myself...
