General Car Chat / Space saver tyre
« on: 21 October 2018, 16:55:26 »
Could somebody please advise.
I have 235/45/19 on the front and 255/40/19 on the back. I noticed that the space saver is t135/90/17. If i had a flat either on the front or back could i use this space saver without causing any damage to transfer boxs or diffs. Car is a bmw x3.
I have looked on a couple of different sites and the tyre radius is ok but iam more worried about any damaged to could cause.

General Car Chat / Bmw 3ltr petrol

On normal driving everything runs fine. If i give it a boot full to overtake or just to get on i find my cats are stinking of rotten eggs. Does this mean my cats are shot. :'(

General Car Chat / Tyre sizes and rolling radius
« on: 06 May 2018, 16:24:36 »
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.

General Car Chat / Black plastic

General Discussion Area / Brake pedal
« on: 13 April 2018, 20:16:15 »
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.

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.

General Car Chat / 4x4
« on: 02 March 2018, 14:27:52 »
Knowning nothing really about this but after reading some stuff on here about bmw x5s and seening a land rover and a truck thing go up our hill without a problem but a chap in a range rover couldnt. My question is whats the best and why or is it just tyre choice and driver skill. Would lets say a audi quattro on winter tyres be as good as lets say a land rover. Also whats the difference in all wheel drive and a 4x4.
