Do you love your manual transmission but need a bigger car? Today, there aren't many options for you to choose from. Dodge has hinted about rolling out a manual version of the Charger SRT-8 but right now they seem to be stuck in, well, neutral. BMW has confirmed they'll be offering the new M5 with a manual transmission.
We would like to thank BMW for offering a manual transmission on the E23 (1978-1987) and E32 (1988-1994*) BMW 7 Series. These vehicles offer classic styling, lots of room, good handling and the freedom to shift when you want to shift.
If you still love your 735i and would like to add a little sizzle to your ride, take a look at the 18x7.5 20mm offset chrome plated Zinik Z24 Risso marked down from $255 to $99 per wheel.***
What if you're interested in purchasing 18" tires? Both 245/40-18 and 235/40-18 sizes are compatible, however I personally would recommend 235/40-18 because 245/40-18 seems a little too wide for a sports luxury sedan. For a great balance of wet and dry grip, low tread noise and decent wear, consider the Kumho Ecsta 4X. Enjoy this combination mounted and balanced and ready to install for only $952.**
18x7.5 5-120 20mm offset Zinik Z24 Risso
235/40-18 Kumho Ecsta 4X
If you're puzzled as to why the Ecsta 4X doesn't appear in our Tire Survey Results, it's because we haven't accumulated our minimum number of surveys and reported miles. The Ecsta 4x is the replacement for the popular Ecsta ASX and during "Testing Value-Priced Ultra High Performance All-Season Tires" we found the Ecsta 4X had improved across the board, especially in wet grip.
In addition to the 1980-1992 735I, a set of these chrome wheels also fit other low offset BMWs such as: the 1977-1984 BMW 633Csi, the 1986-1989 BMW 635Csi, the 1978-1984 BMW 733i, 1993-1994 BMW 740i, 1980-1986 BMW 745i and the 1988-1994 BMW 750iL.
