Nick's E90 gets new wheels.

car Nick's E90 gets new wheels.
Hi all.

Just a quick one from my end.

Most will know that i have wanted a set of 1m wheels for my car for years, the stars have aligned for me.

A fellow Member hooked me up on a used set of 18 reps, they need some work to get them back to 100% and they all need new rubber.

Below is the start of the resto process.

1. the night i brought them home, gave them a quick hose down.

2. I fitted one side just to get a feel for the off sets, then i went to Tiger wheel to pull the old rubber off. None of them held air very well.

3. Came home and sprayed them down with Sonax wheel cleaner, i believe Dragons Breath works better...

4. The results after the Sonax and some elbow grease.

Next up ill send them in for refurb as one rear has a dent on the inner lip, and they might as well respray them.
I also need center caps as the OEM ones dont fit so that going be a fun experience.

Then ill get the new rubber sorted, im modding on a budget Rofl

To be continued...

Berry goo Nick-san.

I've got a set of tires at home (225/255) at home you might like. Talk to me when you have a gap.

FINALLY! Tiptoe

Well done man. Like everyone has said, those wheels just work on the E90, sport pack.. If you're going to refurb, maybe consider a slightly darker colour than Hyper Silver.

Exes:
10' BMW 335i Motorsport (A) - Alpine White III
