Unfortunately my wheels are pretty wide 205mm so I need to replace them, but first I have to take care of other things. Maybe next year? Or maybe I'll switch wheels with some BMW owner for stock BMW wheels with 185 tyres... I think it can be done.

Anyway I'll start to modd my ride soon so I'll keep you posted. I have some ideas how to improve aerodynamics, reduce rolling resistance and get as much miles from galon as I'll be able... ;-)

Stock tyres are either




TBH, they're not that wide for the size of the car.

The compact you ahve has the older e30 rear axle- good fun, but a bit snappy in certain conditions.

185 wheels make it laughably slidy..and going sideways does not get you good mpg
