Damn newbies...just kidding..lol Everything you need to know right here... Tire Tech Information - Calculating Approximate Tire Dimensions

And to calculate tire size ride height compared to stock, go here Tire Size Calculator - tire & wheel plus sizing

The first number is the width of the tire (285mm, 295mm, 305mm, etc). The second number is the height of the tire's sidewall (though it is listed as a percentage of the tire width so if it was a 285/30 that would mean that sidewall is 30% of the 285mm tire width. If it were a 285/35, that would mean that the sidewall is 35% of the 285mm tire width). The last number is the wheel diameter.

M-Atlanta Timmay Meet at BIP Pictures

For all those that missed the meet last Saturday I've uploaded photos on the M-Atlanta site Photos | M-Atlanta. We had a great time and I encourage everyone to try to make the next one!

If I don't have the M6 up here in March I might have to bring it just to meet you guys. 90% chance of the M6 unless snows in the forecast before the trip up, then I can't bring any fun cars lol

I do have a 1997 Honda Passport SUV I was going to sell but I am not sure if I can do that or not now. I keep it in NC for the other run around vehicle. It's nice to have 4x4 when you need it. If you are remotely interested let me know. My father in law has it now, so I am not sure I can pry it from him or not

I think I found my new beast Found a 2008 Honda Acord with 40,000 miles for only 12,000. I am thinking this may be it. How many miles can I put on it? I think it will be fun to drive. With the M6 I am always so cautios of where I park and things like that. I am going to be slinging this thing around corners and parking on curbs

I PM'd most of you guys this information, but wanted to send it in the post as well.

We've received an invitation from Bruce Schonk over at Atlanta Motorsports Park. He is a 3-series owner and wants to invite us over for a tour of the park next Saturday at 9:30 am. He wants more BMW guys to join particularly M-guys so we're all set for a tour. I think this will help us garner some interest in a track day later this year so let me know if you're interested. Here's the website...

http://www.atlantamotorsportspark.net/

If you are definitely coming please make sure you RSVP with Bruce. His email address is bruce@100mphlunch.com. He needs your full name, vehicle year, make and model, email address and mention atlbimmers tour. The RSVP cutoff is Thursday.


Afterward, we have also been invited to an Open House at R&I Motorsports in Roswell. ATL Bimmers group is planning to meet at the North Georgia Premium Outlets before we roll over to the facility. We can join them there and I will post the time we will meet later this week. Don't miss this chance to see a great facility and perhaps get out on the track! After the facility tour, we will roll over to R&I Motorsports in Roswell and meet up with the owner John. He will have a little food and drinks for everyone. Stay up to date on our M5Board post here.

http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/usa-southeast-forum/200924-new-track-atlanta-motorsports-park-4.html#post2256097

Hope everyone can make it!!
