Who says you can't fit 4 tires in an E93?! Thinking outside the box :)

Who says you can't fit 4 tires in an E93?! Thinking outside the box


Since I'm going down to EAS/VMR today to get my new tires mounted (Yes, I am driving 70 miles on way to get tires mounted, I don't trust the shops around here), I needed a way to get the tires over there... I wasn't going to take 2 cars.. That's for sure.
I'm also meeting up with a very beautiful woman who lives in the area...who I wouldn't normally drive 70 miles to see, so it worked out.
And I should see one of my best friends from Elementary school while I'm down there.. win win win . If you're going to be driving 140+ miles, might as well make the most of it right? (for those that don't know me, I hate driving my car in the city/on freeways. And when I go to far-away meets, I rarely take the M3; so if I'm driving really far, I have to convince myself it's worth it. I don't even drive 25 miles to see my gf on a regular basis, so yeah..)

So I thought out of the box


(ok maybe not all that out of the box, but I just wanted an excuse to use that picture )

And did this:




The 4th one is in the trunk.

I measured the interior and resumed the tires and it checked out, but I was still nervous it wouldn't work out... But it did
I could even put 1, heck I could squeeze 2 more tires in the front seat...

I did the same when I bought my winter wheels\tires from a local guy, except I put one in the front seat. And then, since it was raining, I put the top up.

Best part is the buyer for the currently mounted tires is meeting me down in Anaheim so I won't need to meet up afterwards with tires in my car lol
