    Hello-

    Go right ahead! This was my first BMW and Z4. It was a 2.5 Step, non sport. I couldn't wait to get those 16" 104s and runflats off!



    These are BMW Style 125 18" staggered 8" front 8 1/2" rear. Michelin Pilot Sport PS2s. Watch your offset and tire size - then go have some fun!

    Best!
    Jack

    P.S. - Stick with the standard Z4 18" tire sizes (even a little larger)and you will have no clearance problems.<img src="http://members.roadfly.com/jackb1/SIG.05Z4.160.307.jpg" height=160 width=307>

    Do you have a picture of the liquids on your Z4? Are those the ones sold by discount tire?

    Thanks!

    Re: Used tires to go with the wheels????

    i found a guy selling OEM SPIDER SPOKE Style 199 with michelin runflats for $1850. Only 50 miles on tires and rims. Is the ride that much better without the runflats?

    Re: Used tires to go with the wheels????

    Hi Mason!

    Yes - sort of - the ones in the "Merlot" picture are BMW style 125.

    The tires I have for sale are the OEM Continentals that I took off the set of Z4M wheels and tires that I bought. I replaced the Conties with Michelin Pilot Sport PS2s and put them on my 2005 3.0 Sport -



    I'm selling the OEM Conties - all with 6/32 to 7/32 - $200 for set plus shipping (about $100 FedEx) -



    Did you get your allignment checked yet!

    Best!
    Jack

    Re: can i put 18's on my 05 Z4 2.5i non-sport

    Absolutely! 18" is much better ride, stance and feel of the wheel - and great on the 2.5 non/sport!

    I really liked our 2003 2.5 Step non/sport. It was our first sports car and our first BMW. The rest had to be stick shift and I love trying to drive them as clean shifting as I can - with a little attitude! I love these cars, Z3s and Z4s - I have even drove the new 2009 Z4 and like it too!

    My wife wants to stop driving our F150. So she looked at all the little 4door "what evers" and she didn't like any of them. I suggested a 2001 or 02 Z3 automatic and she is open to the idea! We are looking -

    Since my 2003 Z4, it has been like eating peanuts! I should have kept all of them!

    Best!

    Just about everyone that changes from runflats to "regular" tires would never go back to runflats.
