Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

2007 BMW 530 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 192008

530 8-cyl

  • 10,836 miles


I purchased a new 2007 530I with light alloy rims and "run flat" tires from weatherford BMW in berkeley, ca. In June 2008, with only 10836 miles on my odometer I was advised that I had to have my two rear rims replaced at $491.19 each for a total of $982.38. The part number for these rims are 36-11-6-760-616. I was notified by my independent mechanic that some of the rubber on the my rear tire tire was separating and flapping thus the noise in my rear tires. When I took my vehicle for tire replacement at the tire firm, I was notified that the same two rims that were replaced in 2008 at 10836 miles was cracked (now at 77633 miles). I attempted to resolve this matter with the BMW dealer but was promptly dismissed by the service techniciab and told "tough luck" and if I wanted 2 new rims, I would have to pay for them. Since these rims are very important to my personal safety and I find it very difficult that as bad as the highways in California are not a+, that these rims would fail at 10,836 miles of normal driving even with the "run flat" tires. I feel that this is a manufacturer's safety issue since this situation appears to be almost a common problem with these same vehicles, all with manufacturer's rims. Since the safety of the passengers depends on the dependability of the rims and tires I feel it needs to be investigated by your department.
