Nicest freaking guy on the planet, hands down.

Thank you very much man you really are a life saver bro...the world would be a much better place if it had more people like you. He wouldn't even take money from me, and basically changed the wheels with no help. Too kind for words. Truly a stand up guy!

Awesome post! I am very impressed. Glad it worked out.

Something to consider: I travel a lot so I purchased a BMW jack, portable impact wrench, refurbished M3 wheel with PS2 mounted on it and keep everything in the trunk.

I've already helped another M3 (a Forum Friend) when he had a flat.

Just a thought....

If I were around that area and knew you really were in trouble, I would have helped. Hope everything worked out for you.
Nice recovery... thanks for taking the high road.

Wow, that was really cool. I guess I was just getting used to people being aggravated and rude, putting people down on this forum. Nice to see somebody helping out. Really cool.

That is exactly what this damn forum should be about.

This thread is epic. Shamoo is a great guy. It's nice to see this thread instead of the ones of people bashing each other. Glad everything worked out OP.

Nicely done shamoo,

I know what it feels like having been stranded in a small US town last year on my vacation trip and local people helped out. I even communicated with my BMW dealer at home and they replied at once while I waited in a hotel room for a replacement wheel. It is nice when people help a guy in need.

To the fellow calling this cry for help a troll, I hope he is not stranded any time soon, if he is he should remember his negativity.

Cheers,

Rolf-Dieter

Thanks guys. Feels good to help out. [insert feelsgoodman.jpg]

I wasn't about to take John's money last night. Those 19" OEM tires are expensive man! Save your money for replacing that busted tire!

And BTW, like I mentioned last night you don't have to drive all the way back here today to drop the wheels off. They're my winters and I won't need them until like December. Next time you're in the area, drop by. Otherwise you don't need to be driving 70+ miles one way to drop off some wheels that are just going in my attic.

Good man, shamoo. I was stranded on the 405 a few years ago with a dead battery and two flats (talk about a comedy of errors) for hours late into the evening. No sign of the tow, and no less than five CHP cars passed me up until a cruiser finally stopped to assist. I feel the OP's pain.
