    The Wheel Guy - Official Sale Thread

    Yea I want more than 255 on the rear - I want as big as possible without rubbing as traction is important with so much torque. I'm hoping to fit at least 275's without rubbing.

    I think you would be fine with 225/235 40 18 for the front and 255 35 18 rear. I was running 18x8.5 et22 with 235 40 18 square on my e46 and they didnt stick out

    The importance of Full Cover Insurance

    This. Make insurance compulsory (and it's no coincidence that the biggest campaigners for that are the insurance companies) and the premiums will go up. All the 'competition will make the market stable' claims will mean nothing - exactly this has happened in the UK. New drivers may spend as little as £500 to buy a car, and face £2500-3500 in annual insurance premiums. At present, the voluntary nature of insurance in NZ means that you buy insurance to cover yourself. Make insurance compulsory, and you're buying it to cover everyone else.

    Yea but the offset is not right for me as they stick out too far which limits the size of tyre I can go to on the back of a lowered car. For my V8 wagon I want the widest tyre I can fit under the arch.

    Project twin e34's

    How did the painted rocker covers come up? They are tricky because the surface is not smooth - I've been trying to think what finish to go with mine.

    The importance of Full Cover Insurance

    I think third party insurance should be lumped together with car rego. I wouldnt mind paying more than $80 a year for rego which makes it way too easy for people to put cars on the road.

    The importance of Full Cover Insurance

    Voluntary insurance probably works out better for decent drivers. If you want insurance you get it and if some idiot hits you then you can make a claim. The people who want insurance are sharing the risk among themselves. Making insurance compulsory just introduces all the morons into the pool and this makes it more expensive for everyone else on average. With voluntary insurance, all the accidents where two uninsured morons hit each other, or drive off the road by themselves, don't result in any claims (which helps keep premiums down).

    The importance of Full Cover Insurance

    I bet the proportion of the population that do not have any insurance, also struggle with the concept of wof/rego, and will treat "compulsory" insurance the same. I dont disagree with you at all by the way, its the same problem with a bunch of regulation - You end up writing regs for the people that follow them, not the people who just DGAF.

    Soooo when the f##k are the authorities in this country going to wake up to make insurance compulsory. it only needs to be 3rd party. What gives the right to anyone to bash into someone else & not be responsible!

    Oh man that sucks... glad no injury was involved! Let's look on the bright side, one less E9x 320i on the roads🙄 Now for the first question on everyone's lips- did that rim survive???

    The importance of Full Cover Insurance

    I had my 2011 535i Touring written off a few months back. Uninsured restricted license driver in a 300Z Nissan. Not even a third party. She written off two cars (apart from her own) and caused damage to two motorway barriers (which will need to be fixed with the traffic control in place == $$$). I was fully covered.

    To true on cars with any value. Particularly when there are so many muppets running around with NO insurance!

    The importance of Full Cover Insurance

    Yeah i remember having 3rd party on my first E34 i bought. A drunk driver hit it in the rear with a bullbar fitted ute and drove off, got his details and the police paid him a visit but they couldnt do sh*t. Car was a write off with bend chassis rail but at least i found another body with a stuffed motor and swapped the engine\trans over. Never got 3rd party again after that
