My Ride: Dark Monaco Blue Non M? Manual 550i style 124. 130k miles. Black interior. Should I keep it?
Model Year: 2006
Default Chicago Bmw/track enthusiast

Hey guys just picked up this stick 2006 Bmw 550i non m. A couple things about it. Picked it up with a couple flats and the radiator vent hose leaking . After i filled the tires with air I drove it around to clear some rust off the brakes/rotors. There was some serious shaking when braking. I thought it was the rotors, but my buddy said its always been there so i think maybe some control arm or bushing related issue. I know a good deal about its history, but it's been sitting outside for about 5 months sooo...

Need to replace a tire, but I have a set of 135m wheels from my 04 zhp sedan. Does anyone know if they will fit this 06 550i? The 550 currently has a set of style 124, but I don't know the specs. All advice is appreciated for my new project car.

I ordered the vent pipe and front thrust arm bushings.

THANKS

Bryan

Here are the specs on the 124s: BMW wheel style 124 | BmwStyleWheels.com
Here are the specs on the 135s: BMW wheel style 135 | BmwStyleWheels.com


As long as the 135s have an offset of 20, I think you're good to go.

That helped, and I appreciate it.

who else is in chicago? I'll trade hot dogs/bacon/ sausages for knowledge and help working on my 500i project. (I'm a meat buyer in the city)


Also I wanted to ask members their thoughts on keeping this over my 04 330i zhp which has been fun, cheap, and reliable. Suggestions on where to post that or continue on here?
