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.

RE: Bottoming out
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

its ont the fender just inside the wheel arch.

then all the scraping spots.

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.

RE: Bottoming out
I suspect your offset (et) is wrong for your car.

RE: Bottoming out
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?

RE: Bottoming out
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.
