Yep wheel are oem. No other size tyres. Only other option is buy 4 new wheels 18"

Ok so using that..
255 40 19 sidewall 4.0" radius 13.5"  diameter 27.0" circumference 84.9"

235 45 19 sidewall 4.2" radius 13.7"  diameter 27.3" circumference 85.8"

These are my tyre figures but how does that help with my question. Does it mean i will be fine running the same 235s all round even though i think my back wheels are 8.5 not 8 j.

Sorry if questions are stupid but price of tyres are not cheap so dont want to cock it up

I picked up a bmw which is running on 235 45 19 on the front and 255 40 19 on the back. It needs new tyres all round but i cannnot find 4 of the same. Apart from the cheap rubbish.
 Is they any reason why i cant run 235 45 19 all round. I think the alloy is a bigger width on the back.
Also is the running diameter different with the setup it has now.

Cheers Nick. I was just thinking 10mm was a bit of overkill. But i want to be sure it wont bend or snap. So a 2mm thick piece will work ?

Bit of a strange question but if i heat the metal arm of a brake pedal could i get it hot enough with a plumbers torch. Secondly once and if i could bend it would the metal loose its would it be brittle and not safe to use. Also what thickness would you make a wide brake pedal say 15cm wide when the brake arm will be at one end and not in the middle. I was thinking a 10mm drilled plate.

The X3 in general is one to avoid no matter what.  If it must be that style of car, and must be BMW, get an X5.

He did state he had only put then on 60 miles ago and they did look brand new.

General Car Chat / Bmw x3
« on: 19 March 2018, 20:04:32 »
Had a look at a 2004 bmw x3 when you slow down you stop then you get a slight thump from the back. Chap told me it was because he has just put on 2 cheap tyres on the back. His  mechanic agreed with. I have googled it and it does seem to be a problem if same tyres are not the same make on all 4 wheels. Just thought i would ask your opinions on this. Yes i can walk away but would just like to know.
