Not as cold these days. That means there's more traction for the M.

My car has been making a weird high pitched squeal at low speeds when i turn the wheel and sometimes when I brake. I was going to take it to Choung to look at but do you think I should do it before I put on the springs/wheels/tires or will they care if its already done?

Im not sure. Its weird bc sometimes it will do it in a straight line when im slowing down too tho. I keep trying to figure it out but now its especially hard to figure out since my car is at the body shop...

Im going to let Choung at it either way. I actually had an appt to see him the day the parking lot incident happened. I was going to have him look at it before the wheels/tires got here but now that has all changed.

Does anyone know of a good wheel shop in Houston? My track wheels should be arriving by the end of the week and I want to speak with someone about the right tire fitment while they are looking at the car. Someone posted pics of the same wheels I ordered with the same tires I have in mind on their e92 and I thought it looked terrible (pics here). I feel like they look way to small for the wheel well on the e9x. The wheels were made for the e46M which may be why they looked so small, but either way, can someone recommend a good shop so I do not have the same problem? Thanks in advance.

tbh, if you want to talk to just about the best wheel guy anywhere about anything related to wheels, contact peter at *******perts. he's in dallas, but i know him personally, done business with him as well, and he's just about the most knowledgeable wheel expert (pardon the pun) around. http://*******perts.com/contact.html is his contact info. he also posts on many forums, although i don't think he posts over here anymore. any dallas local guys can attest to peter's wheel greatness.

Any 18" wheel with an offset designed for the E46 is going to look ridiculous on the E92, especially on 35 series tires. You'll end up with more gap than Michael Strahan's front teeth. You'll be fine with the E46 though. You running a square 255/35/18 on 9.5" wheels all around?
