What do I need to know about 540 Wheel Alignment?

Hi all...
Spring is here and I'm just itchin' to get the summers on. My 1995 540i automatic (see picture) has been lowered and I have a set on M5 Style 66 wheels for it.

Do I take it to the dealer? or?

Are stock settings OK or do I need to ask for a modified setting to allow for the lowered body and trick wheels.

Thanks Dan

if the car does not pull you are good.

If you have uneven wear then maybe not.

If you do decide to go... there is no harm take it to woodbridge allignment and get them to check it and say if its bad then do it... 4wheel allignment is 100 or so there...

excellent place highly recommended. They do it by hand.

take it to IAC to get your alignment done. I hear they have some impressive alignment machines.

BTW, on my E34, rear is not adjustable, only front. Probably the same thing for your 540. Only ask for front alignment.
