jack the rear wheels, the front just free wheel. I dont know if the e90s have locking steering wheels though. If they do, make sure the wheels are locked DEAD STRAIGHT. If not, you'll need dollies.

if you have it up on carriers it doesn't matter.

or do you mean redneck style with rope looped through the tow hook. in which case why are you even doing this.

Wow. This explains your other line of questioning.

Drag the rear wheels, everything will be good.

How could a tow-truck driver not know this already?
