P38 2.5 td rattle, disco wheels


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

got a rattle, came very sudden and sounded like timing chain (BMW 2.5). On investigation I found that the fan was seized and the idler and tensioner pulley for the fan belt were a little noisy. Started engine and ran without fan belt for a couple of minutes and the rattling noise is gone so will be fitting new fan, fan belt and pulleys tomorrow. Also been offered a nice set of Disco wheels with new mud and snow tyres fitted the rims are 17" as opposed to 18" but with 70 profile tyres giving a slightly bigger rolling diameter than the originals but with 235 instead of 255. Will this affect the handling. By the way the inside of the rim to the inside hub is the same as the originals-7", hoping it will soften the ride slightly as the coil conversion is a little hard but was well worth it and would defnatly do it again.
