My tire blew up, need to replace.

Hey guys, was on my way to pick up the gf from getting her hair done when my driver side rear tire blew up on me. I hough it was maybe a nail or something, but there was a crack and steel showing all the way around the tire on both the inside and outside. Am pimpin the spare (thank god it's not a doughnut, but it's a smaller tire).

But anywho, my car has the sports package and I have 17" M3 rims. What I'll be doing is that I'll replace both rear tires, but what I'd like to do is put wider tires on. The car came with 225's in the front and 245 in the rear.

Question is.... What's the widest tire I can slap in the rear without having to roll the fenders?

if you are going to use the same wheel, then no matter what tire size it is, like if its 225 and 245 on the same wheel, its the same width?

Bad news got worst, I think I have a bent rim...

But here's the tire.... I'll be looking at it closer in the AM, if I do have a betn rim, then that means I'll be getting some 18" CSL's... if not, then I'll just replace the two tires on the rear to the widest that I can slapp on there









Look at where the crack is, right under the weight.... you can see how the rim seems to be bent....

I'd like to keep the same rim, I just want to slap the widest tire (255 maybe?) on the back rims?

what iw as saying is, no matter what size tire u slap on there(if it fits) the widht will still be the same, b/c if its a 245 it will kinda curl around rather than a perfect fit 225.. oh and from pic 2, yea thats bent, but that def. shouldnt do that to your tires, it may have been the sealant was cracked or something

yeah you'd have to get bigger rims and tires or else the tires would roll. If its economically sound get some CSL's those would look hot on your car.

Well... am about 90% sure the rim is bent....

That means some CSL's are coming my way ...

Now.... am gonna go with an 18" wheel.

Probably gonna do 235/40/18 in the front.... what can I do in the rear? 255/40/18? (Don't forget... I Don't want to have to roll fenders!)

Good. I was just going to say that we have a "wheel" guy that services our customer's bent wheels. He gets them unbent...and removes scratches, scrapes, rashes along the rim, etc. I'm pretty sure you have one of those at your BMW dealership too.

Look out for the pot holes, thats the thing that scares me the most, besides bottoming out on driveways and such, when i have my 17s on because the low profile is easier to blow out, and bend.
