Question about 1996 BMW 7 Series

1 Answer

Hi i have a bmw730 53 plate. It has 19" wheels. The tyres on the back are 275/40/19 and on the front they are 245/45/19. Is it ok to add 245/40/19 on the front as I need to replace the tyres or should the profile stay slightly different. If so why please?

Albeit slight, it may affect the speedo reading & ESP/Traction control if fitted.

I have a wobbling back end seat leon 1.9 tdi 2008 plate


wobbling from the rear end can be from worn suspension rubbers in the control arms. Normally it is from belt separation in the tyres and bulges in the side walls
I take it that it is a front wheel drive with no diff action at the rear.
another point may be that the rear brakes are grabbing ( out of round drums or warped discs) that is causing the vehicle to react as if the rear is loose.

I have a 1996 caddillac deville I put 22'' inch rims on with no problem, but a week ago I was driving and my car dipped and float up and down smoothly. It wasnt a pot hole it was a dip. anyways my rim tire...


try dropping down a width size in tyres and see if that will give you the clearance you need That is if you have 250 -50/22 tyres now come back to say 200-50/22 tyres . I don't know what tyres you are running but what I am saying is get the side walls to sit up straighter by putting on a narrower tyre . There will be a solution and the people to talk with are your local tyre shop people.. You may also be able to fit plates behind the rims on longer wheel studs to give you the clearance you require.

My 97 jeep cherokee front drivers wheel staggers when at speeds of 45 to50. but it stops around the speed of 60


hi there ,this is a tyre problem we in the business call an "out of round tyre" to find which tyre it is so you can replace it ,go to each wheel and feel around the tread part of each tyre with your bare hand laying flat on the tread and feel right around each tyre ,you will find the problem tyre quite fast using this method as you will feel a raised bit on the bad tyre thats making your steering wheel shake ,a reputable tyre shop could do this for you if you dont feel capable ,then have the tyre replaced and ask them to balance all your wheels in the processand THANK YOU for using FixYa !!!

Jaguar x type 19" alloy wheel upgrade but rear wheels rub on arch


I really don't think you will be able to use those rims and tires, probably the biggest is going to be 18" wheels. The 8.5" rim is too wide. An 18" came as the stock size on the sport package for the Jag, it's 7.5 wide. I don't think who sold them to you really knew if they would fit or not. Without wheel spaces and raising the suspension, I don't think they'll work on the car.

Car vibrates at slow speed, veering to the right,steering wheel vibrates; vibration less at higher speeds; within last two weeks couple of times steering hard, revved up in neutral it comes back to easy...


check tyres for wear-wheel balance needed if visibly ok-have a wheel alignment after a tyre rotation-best even tyres to be put on fronts-they will carry out a safety check all suspension and steering before doing the wheel alignment

Golf mk3 pulls to the left


First check your tyre pressures.If they check out ok, try wheel alignment.The fact that your steering wheel does not centre may mean its had new track rod ends or steering rack and hasn,t been aligned properly.

Front end noise


Hi Wild Bear

No 1....... Check your wheel nuts ! !!!!!!

If OK.....

Is the problem worse on full lock, one way ?

If so, it sounds like the drive shaft CV joint is shot.


If no....

Jack up the front, support car on axle stands.

Spin your front wheels, check the treads, and I should think, you will be able to tell the problem wheel.

Expect it might be in the brake caliper area, something loose and fouling the wheel or rim ?

Check for play too, in your front wheel bearings, by gripping the tyre, top and bottom and pulling, there should be no movement.

Give these things a try, and get back to me.

Good Luck !

A FixYa rating would be nice thank´s

Unexplained tyre ware X Type


This seems to be a fairly common problem with FWD vehicles recently.
Check the tyre pressures are at their top limit, then see if they seem to spread more than other peoples seem to in contact with the ground.

If they look ok, then have your tracking checked for alignment at a garage offering this.

If they still look bulgy at the base, then try to even out the wear by rotating tyres front to back, then bac to fron - but reverse them on the rims if possible.

Many times - it's the manufacture of the tyre at fault - try changing manufacturer next time - some just wear like that.

My steering wheel shakes a lot when i go past 65 mph...what could the problem be and what do i need to do to fix it?


you need to inspect your front tyres for damages, you can start by changing front tyres with back, and test drive, if tyres look ok then have tyres balanced.
