Spare Tire Followup

I ordered the Seasonal Tire Tote from The Tire Rack. It looks sturdy, fits, and covers the spare really well and is supposed to work with the regular tires too (haven't tried yet). Note: the tire tote is sold in pairs, but isn't expensive @ about $20./pair.

Mine's in a Hefty FlexForce bag - sold in 20s but also cheap! :-)

Cost is $70. plus S&H & sales tax which I have to pay as the tire will be coming from their Texas warehouse. I'll post when I know the total cost.

The wheel is currently $73.06 at Tischer.

Mucho thanks to GregW / Oregon and the others that figured this out and published the info.

The Maxxis web site now lists this tire under compact spares and the price is $139. I called Brad and he referred me to the web page.

Any chance someone with one of these spares could see if it fits on an F10 (current 5 series)?

Tire diameter should be a bit different but size is available, real question is the wheel fitting and clearance?

Sorry this is off topic but somehow related. Would really appreciate any help.

Thanks

Hi all. I took my BMW 36-11-6-768-861 black steel wheel and Maxxis T135/70R18 104M M9500N over to my local tire shop, and they were really scratching their heads at first. From the look of the wheel and tire, these folks thought there was no way that skinny tire would mount on the wheel, so I told them to go ahead and try anyway. Of course it mounted right on, filled up with air, and balanced with no issues. Now I have a compact spare in my trunk, along with a jack.

So, here's what you need:

- BMW 36-11-6-768-861 black steel wheel;
- BMW 36-12-1-116-326 rubber valve stem, $5.35 list
- Centering ring, 74.1-72.6 mm; 1010 tire (mis-labeled 74.1-72.56 $30 shipped for set of 4 (you can sell extras)
- Maxxis T135/70R18 104M M9500N (#TP10655100), $85 + $10 shipping + $12.50 mount & balance

All-in-all, not inexpensive, but a nice bit of security to have in the trunk for trips, and about half the size of a full-size spare.

Has anyone in Western Canada done this? I want to get one of these for my car. Wondering if I should source the parts from my dealer and tires from Maxxis or if there is different sources for us. Has any other Canadian sourced a tire from Maxxis? If so what was the shipping like?

I've done this, but I don't use the Maxxis tire. I can't remember but I think it is either a Conti or Bridgestone that I'm using. I'll try to remember to look and post back.

There is a Bridgestone 145/70r18 that's actually a better size (closer match to the standard tire diameters) than the Maxxis, but it's quite a bit more expensive. elh0102 sourced one of the Bridgestone's from Tire Rack a while back. He said, "You won’t see the compact spare tires listed, just call and ask".

I'm not too worried if the size is exact. I'm more worried about cost. So I'm gathering that the Maxxis will likely be the least expensive option. Is that the same tire that can also be sourced through Cadillac dealers? I may try that first as I imagine the shipping for a single tire to Canada could be prohibitive.

Yes, the Maxxis is the Cadillac tire.

Called Ben and ordered 2 rings today, he says that the ring will read 74mm-72.56mm but will work for my purpose. I'm a bit skeptical considering its not exact 74.1-72.6 mm as advised on this thread. Should I be worried?

Think about it - 0.1mm is only 1/254"! Should be fine.

So I ordered the more expensive route today. I feel more comfortable paying more and making sure I have the best and safest possible solution. And just to sum it all up to make it easier for others, I'll list what and how I ordered.

2 - "74mm-72.56mm" centering rings (called Ben at 877 533 8473 ext 660 from tire rack and ordered two just in case 1 breaks) at $6.00 plus $6.66 shipping = $12.66

1 - T145/70R-18 Bridgestone Tempa Spare LL tire (called tire rack again since not listed on their web site) at $277 plus $16.07 shipping = $293.07

1 - BMW 36-11-6-768-861 rim (ordered from http://www.worldimpex.com/parts/bmw-...c_1533872.html) at $88.68 plus $20.08 shipping = $108.76

4 - BMW 36-12-1-116-326 rubber valve stem (Called Worldimpex at 800-736-3550 and they combined the order with the rim so I didn't have to pay additional shipping charges, saved $10) at $2.85 plus $0 shipping = $2.85

Total cost of $417.34.

Next step is to bring to my local tire dealer to get it all assembled.

Thanks to everyone who has participated in this thread. You all helped me come to my decision on going the more expensive route as well as provide great insight. And special thanks to Tom Tarzian and GregW / Oregon. Without you guys, most of us wouldn't even have this option!

145/70 is a better size than the Maxxis 135/70 - pretty expensive, though.

^^the only problem I see with using the above steel wheel (page one of this thread!) is that you have to NOT loose that plastic adpator PLUS you need different wheel bolts bc of the steel wheel. The bolt heads taper in a different fashion. The above steel wheel is from a X5. I am still kind of surpised this wheel clears the larger M3(&1M) brakes.

I don't think you can buy the complete spare wheel and tire like I did over here in DE. But you should be able to buy the alloy wheel and then source a mini donut from TireRack or the like.

Here is the alloy wheel for the M3 listed by RealOEM.com
http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts...74&hg=36&fg=95



Here are some pics of my spare tire setup on my 135i(same alloy wheel!)...











jack kit and tools = 71106773536 - 100 euros
alloy wheel/tire spare = 36110445045 - 120 euros

The original spare tire thread...

That's a 17" alloy wheel, correct? And it clears the M3 front brake?

I glued my ring in with a bit of epoxy, though I think the wheel would still work okay without it for temporary use.

Yes, you are correct. My wheel is a 17" wheel. Somehoe I missed the factthat in the 1st post of this thread that steel wheel is a 18". I thought it was a 17".

I don't understand why on RealOEM they list my wheel's part number for the 1M and M3 though. ?

Perhaps it does work, it's just that no E92 uses a 17" wheel.
