Smile Winter Alloys and Tyres on G30 530i

Hi all,

I have just put my winter tyres on today and here they are below look better than i thought.

Have dropped from 19" to 18" non staggered. Summers in storage now

684 V Spoke winter wheels and tyre set tyres on the alloys are 245/45R18 V Goodyear Ultra Grip 8 Performance Runflats

Summer wheels can be seen on my other thread:http://g30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho....php?t=1395256

I have the same setup on my 540i G31. At the begining I was little bit dissapointed-they looked small compared to 19 but I get used to.

I like it, works great on your car with the grey and black.

What finish are the wheels? Doesn't look as black as you gloss black summer set up.

Yeah thats how i felt a bit now when i put them on. but like you said getting used to them.


Also feels more like a softer ride than the 19" for some reason or may just be me

Not sure how it would like mate but make sure you get the right size. if you have the m sport break system the smallest you can go is 18" otherwise the wheels dont clear.

so be careful of that

Thanks much appreciated.

I am not sure, they look the same as my summers with the finish. When i looked at them in person. i may take a closer look when i change them back next year.

Your right though it has more of a sheen to them

I stayed with the 2 wheel drive rather than x drive due to the extra weight and feel of it.

At the time the x drive was not an option too in the 530i

Let me know how they feel in the snow. We havent had proper snow now for a little while here in the north east of england but i have a feeling we may get some this year

Looks like njc has a 520d, so no M sport brakes.

But today i saw a 530e with M sport brakes, and it had 17" winters.

Looked like the 17" style 618.
It had VERY little clearance, and I'd be afraid that tiny rocks and pebbles would get stuck between the caliper and the barrel of the wheels and scrap them. I know this is a problem on the newest M3/M4 with carbon ceramic brakes and OEM 19" wheel. Personally I wouldn't go smaller than 18".

Yeah BMW say not to go below 18 on these for the clearance. Like you say this could cause issue while driving and may need to check the insurance as if anything happens it may not cover you.

This car was actually at a dealership, and I believe it was a demo car.

Defo i have had a drive back from london today and the tyres were great on the ice snow and slush at the service station

Think definitely a good investment

I am worrying about clearance as well. I am getting my 530e with blue m sport brake. In Canada, all G30s come standard with 19. I am debating if I need to get 20 inch. I am worrying about if 19 will have proper clearance

No need for 20" wheels. The wheels with the tiny clearance was only 17", so even OEM 18" wheels won't be a problem.
