Will try and get her up in the air this weekend to see if I can find the rattle.

Lucky for me the only part of the speedbump I hate the most is when the front wheels go over, thats where I mostly hit, Cry bumper still high enough to clear most of them Joy

Will update again soon.

also check I noticed your wheels rub when you turn hard.

Jip they do.

Maybe I have to go down to 215s in front and not 225 like they are currently.

Okay, so while my wheels were off I took some photos of rim size and the scraping spots.
Also kinda figured out my car isn`t bottoming out its the tyre hitting where it isn`t suppose to.
Here is a pic of where.

and the back wheels

fixed most of the front ones due to the plastic trimming not seated correctly, pushed it all into place now I can turn without all that scrapping.

Then here is the info i found on the inside of the mag.

There should be nothing wrong with a 7J ET35 on your car.

What size tyres are you running all round? And are the rear wheels the same spec?

All round wheels are the same 225/45 R17.
Doomsday did say that the fact that it is Dunlop SP6000 might have an influence due to the fact that Dunlop tyre`s rubber is thicker than onther tyres?Fencelook

Indeed I did Bluebiggrin but I had 225/45/17 SP7000D Dunflops & the sidewalls was as thick as tractor tyres Rofl

For 17inch e36 rims, Bmw recommends 7.5j in front with an ET of 41 & either 225/45/17 or 235/40/17 tyres.

I use this wheel offset calculator to see what difference it would make if I change either spec of rims or tyres or both. From what I can see your rims are narrow compared to OEM spec.

You can change to a lower profile tyre but that still might not solve your problem as the rim width & offset is incorrect. Only way you won't have issues is to have OEM spec rims with 235/40/17 tyres as 225/45/17 tyres have thick sidewalls irrespective of brand & don't bode well with a 40mm drop.

Maybe I should get other brand fitted and see what it does?

Why don't you just get some spacers and see what happens.
