Question on Wheels on my E46

Hi guys.

My brother went and slapped on the summer wheels on my e46 - 18 inch wheels while i was in the states for the weekend.

Thing is my rear mounts are shot, the car makes knocking noises when im over the bumps - ive ordered new mounts but i wont be able to have time to get them done for another 2 weeks.

Can I still drive my car? Didnt want to put the wheels on till i got the mounts fixed but my smart ass brother couldnt resist..

Im worried the rubber may get chewed or something...? Should I get the alignment done or just not drive it till the mounts are here??

When the mount fails, the top of the shock goes thru the trunk carpet. Then you loose all function of the shock, and ride on spring only (not fun handeling).
Its up to you...

It should take a newbie no longer than an hour per side to replace the RSMs. That's using jackstands and a wrench in your garage.

Yew can do eeeet!
