Hi Warren,
Thanks for the post. How do you like the M-parallels replicas? I've been thinking about
these for my 735il. I believe they are the best
looking wheels.
A few questions:
- Any vibration at 55-60 mph?
- How is the ride, did you lower your car, if
so what spring/shock combo did you go with?
- Are the Supersports aside from being less ex-
pensive fairly compliant on ride?
- Are you running the 40 aspect ration/235 width?

Thanks for any comments,
90 735il

I'm running the $249.00 18x8 discount tire M Parallel replicas on my 1995 525i. You can get free shipping on them from a local discount tire. Check w/ them to see if they manufacture the fitment for your '89. I had to use hubcentric rings which corrected some vibration I had when I first put them on. I love the look and get many compliments. To lessen the impact on my wallet, I went with Pirelli Supersports at $149/ea (all season performance) which you will find is cheap for an 18" tire.

Good luck
