Tyre size

Hi all,

Bought 5 series M Sport 65 plate 6 months ago and looking to change the tyres now but struggling to find the right size for my car. I typed in my car reg no on black circles and they show different size to what i have on my car now.

I have attached what sizes black circles showed for my car as well as the pillar card

Currently am running Nankang AS-1 245/45Z R18 100W-XL

Can someone please advise me what sizes should i run for front & rear or is it depends on the tyres?

Thanks

Hi rajan

Based on your existing tyres

It would've been

245/45 18 fronts

275/35 18 rears

Your car came with branded tyres and the existing tyres put on might be the manufactures closest.

Best option give your vin to the parts department at any dealer and they'll tell you the factory sizes
Hope that helps

Garage List
It depends on what wheels you have - if they're the same width all round, you will use 245/45-18; if you have wider rear wheels than the front, you will use 245/45-18 front, and 275/40-18 rear. The M Sport saloon usually has the wider rears!

Plenty of the correct 96Y tyres out there for the 245/45 R18. The 100 XL (if used) is the equivalent load rating to the 96 Y at the typical pressures we use.

Speed rating of W is low for a summer tyre. Insurance typically requires the OE rating or above.
