Subject: Easiest roomiest transporting of track tires short of a trailer

For those interested, I have been transporting my tires to the track by bagging them (of course) and then standing them up (yes, all four) in the back seat. Then, to keep them from smashing into the back of the front seats every time you brake, I developed a strap that clicks into the stock corner seat belt receivers, no holes to drill! Click in one side, lay the belt on the floor. Load tires, snap in the other side and pull - the belt tightens over the tires and holds them snug. Now you have the trunk AND the spare tire well for luggage, tools, chairs, etc. In addition, you can take a passenger! :)

I've used this method with no damage to the seats whatsoever - passengers in the back seat weigh ALOT more than those tires do!

Anyway, to all the net bimmerphiles, if interested, email me and I'll have one made for you. The "tire belt" will fit most BMWs made in the last 10-15 years. Still looking into the cost, depending on demand, expect prices to range in the $80 per belt range (those seat belt male ends are EXPENSIVE). That is the WHOLESALE cost. Once the initial batch is done, they will be sold through retailers at a 50-70% mark up.
