BMW rims

Postby 49thdiver » Sat Dec 17, 2011 7:08 pm

While BMW rims are a nice upgrade, due to the offset of the tire from the hub, you have to be careful what style you use.
I found that using style "D" or 5 below on the front does not work.

due to the inside surface of the rim being flat which causes it to rub against the front brake caliper.

Where as style 42 above which has a sculpted inside surface works well and looks sharp.

Good reasons to switch to the Bimmer rims is to get a wider foot print on the road and to be able to use a wider tire, we found that the van handles a lot better at speed and if there is any kind of particularly if there is any side wind.
