Since it already was October I needed to start thinking about some wheels for the winter.
To be honest, the tires I had on weren’t even suitable for the summer so I checked on ebay for some used ones. I didn’t want to invest in new wheels or tires which turned out to be a good decision later on.
After a quick search I found some standard BMW wheels which were not too far away so I called, got in the car and got them for not too much money.
4x 225/55 R16 95H seemed like a solid choice and they will last a few seasons probably.
When I was in the shop to have the wheels put on I got a small heart-attack after I heard one of them say something about a rim-lock. I’ve never seen the thing and no one had mentioned it before. This was also the first time the wheels were removed while I was present. Luckily, the issue was resolved shortly after – it was in the trunk.
