    Any E60 owners in Maryland want to help?

    I need to see if my Avant Garde wheels run smoothly on your car? For your help, I have your choice of a couple of drinks at the bar or maybe $$$ for your time? I just need to make sure its not my car causing the problem so I can get my money back from ModBargains if the wheels are bad. Please call me if you would not mind helping.

    I could really use the help. We can kick ideas off of each other as well.

    Have you tried talking to ModBargains for suggestions? They are apparently a good outfit to deal with.

    Most likely the rims. I removed perfectly good 19" rims that came with my 2004 545i. Put the Original Equipment 18" rims back on and it rides just great Now. I put these 19' rims on my 2001 525it and they run fine, I BELIEVE THE 545I FRONT IS SO SENSITIVE THAT AFTERMARKET RIMS WON'T GET THE JOB DONE. BMW frontends are touchy to begin with. The E60 is more so.

    That is because the size on the e60 is smaller than the e39. The wheels that you had for the e60 were designed for the e39 and hence no vibration. I learned this the hard way. I was able to eliminate the vibration but it took alot of patience....
