No, there is no fayle. I just don't think that anyone knows anything about those tires. May I ask how much they were apiece (with or without install). They could be better than mine for all I know.

If you have no issues with those tires then why even own an M3? It's a performance car, and I know for sure that the setup you're running will make the car handle and brake like crap, and understeer massively if you're brave enough to try to take corners at any kind of speed (because you have wider and grippier tires in the back, which makes 0 sense). Those are the kind of tires you'd buy for an old lady to put on a chrysler concorde. The car already isn't particularly fast in a straight line, and now you've neutered the handling, so I guess it just doesn't really make sense to me that you even desire to own the thing. Have you considered getting a 7 series or something? I mean if you really have absolutely no problem with driving on those tires you haven't pushed the car remotely hard. Old bushings are no excuse, believe me. My friend just autocrossed his totally stock 95 with 144k miles and kicked some serious ass.


And I'm not just singling you out, this is how I feel about everyone that puts crap tires on a performance car.

What did you use to get the wheel weight adhesive off?

I've got some on one of my wheels that's really stubborn. No amount of goo gone was budging it.

I used acetone to get the adhesive my PO left on my wheels, and it still took some scrubbing. It came off though. Just make sure you wash them afterwords, otherwise the evaporated acetone leaves a "fog" on the surface. Didn't harm the wheel at all, I checked. If you don't have acetone but have a wife, use her nail polish; it's the same stuff.

What is with you choad lickers? The man bought tires that he likes. Period. Most of you don't even know how to drive well enough to use 42% of the traction offered by your Michelin Pilot sports or whatever other top tier tire you use, especially on the street, so you really should STFU.

I dunno about the other people that agree with me but I have trophies to back my talk up.

Plus after all the **** badgtho has talked to me and others, you can't expect me to let something like this go

The best e36 wheel. Period.
I totally agree. I like the stamped wheel over the polished. Not so much for the stamping (which is cool), but the color. I want to get my polished LTWs refinished, but I've read that that is not an easy task. Now I'm thinking of having them painted in 95 LTW silver (mostly 'cause I'm cheap). Has anyone had their polished LTWs refinished/painted in the 95 silver? I wonder if they would look repy.
