BMW E28 Tyres

(1981 - 88)

  • If you have 14” wheels on your E28 1980s 5 series BMW we would suggest fitting 205/70 WR 14 PIRELLI CINTURATO CN36 (even though many of these cars fitted 195/70R14).
  • Inner tubes are not essential for most radial tyres, but they can still be the better option when compared to going tubeless. For more information, see our inner tube guide.
  • The E 28 BMW 518i, 520i, 525e, 525i & 528i SE fitted 200/60 VR 390 Michelin TRX.
  • The top of the range 5 series E28 cars; 528i, 535i & M535i fitted larger 220/55 WR 390 Michelin TRX.
