Not from me, and I'm not happy about it. Trying to determine if it's worth it to buy a new set of rims since I only expect to have the car for one more winter. All in all, a very disappointing situation.

I talked with Ben about this about a month and a half ago and didn't really come up with anything new.

I measured my center bores. Normal is between 72.56 and 72.69mm. Mine ranged from 72.71 to 72.80. A little big but probably not enough to make a difference.

When I pulled them off this spring I noticed that one of the rears was damaged enough to need a replacement. So I'll need to decide whether to replace just one or all four. Not sure yet which way I'll go on that one. Around here it is often tough to tell the difference between a vibration and the crappy winter roads.

Kinda sucks but then the only reason I got them was because they were cheap...

Nah...I think we just got hung out to dry on this one. I never had this problem with the winter setup on my M5, or my 540i, and they were comparably priced.
