After going to a meet yestarday @ woodbride, I have decided its time for me to put on my 18inch chrome m5's

I was wondering on what I toque my bolts to and what psi I should make sure my tires are

I am running 18's (how do u check the size of the rim like width and fitment??) on 225/40 ZR18 92W Hercules G500Z tires


Is this a good set up?? Ive never heard of Hercules tires before.......... :huh?:


O and how do I polish my rims because they are sprayed chrome not real chrome, u can tell cause the whole rim isnt chrome jsut the visible stuff at the front and its peeling a little.... I dont want to rub off the finish when i polish my rimss

nice, i had 2 sets of replica M5 rims, but 17" and not chrome for my e36... the first set started peeling, so i got another set, and they did the same thing, so i got a set of real chromes (another make) which were awesome..
dont spray your rims w/ anything!!!!!!!!!
my buddys got your exact rims on his alpine white 325ci, they look sooo goood!!!
and keep them looking good by not using anything other than soap, water, and scrubbing... you dont wanna ruin the finish on those beauties!

i take it since our tires are the same, it says MAX PSI is 49!!
so whats a good number to set them at?!

I have similar tires, they're ok for daily driving, but dont have enough traction to keep my back end from kicking out under hard accelleration in wet conditions.
I usually keep my tires anywhere from 35 to 40 psi
