Great space saver package!

Hey guys,

Just came across this space saver package for an E9X M3. What do you guys think? I know most people hated run flats so just pick the Bimmerzone package up and you're good to go on any tire..

There was a thread before about putting together this spare tire set. You can put it together for a fraction of the cost.

Really a Pretty Good Deal

Actually, that's a great price for what you get. The 145/70R18 Bridgestone tire provided by Bimmerzone is a better rolling diameter match than the 135/70 Maxxis that most of us have used, but it's quite a bit more expensive. Shaunt_Alpine put a spare together from parts using the Bridgestone tire recently for $417. Here's the big spare thread: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=253769
. Look at post #102 for the info on the cost with the Bridgestone tire.

I'm pretty sure there are quite a few people that want a spare but don't want to have to put it together themselves. Thanks to WCM3 for the heads up and Bimmerzone for putting it all together at what appears to be a very reasonable markup.

The cost is the Bridgestone tire. That Maxxis is a lot cheaper and it'll knock $200 off the price. It is slightly smaller but it'll work fine to drive a while until you find a tire shop.

For a pre-built kit, there's also this one to consider:

That comes with a jack and tools as well, making it more complete and less expensive.

Edit: The above kit is 17" size, doesn't look like it'll fit the M3.

Does this kit use a centering ring?

I bought the same components and put this together myself; about the same cost. If it can be done for a fraction of this cost, please post your sources.
