BMW Seasonal tire jack kit

Just picked this up at my local dealer. I will get a couple of pics posted later. But the reason I am mentioning it is because the kit is awesome! It ISA nice little emergency scissor jack, folding wheel chock, a few other bits, and a very well-built Heyco Tool torque wrench, all packaged in a zip bag that fits somewhere in the trunk. (not sure exactly where yet) The wrench alone is worth the price of the kit! I am a fan of good tools (have a little collection of Snapon and Maaco, and a complete briefcase of Heyco wrench and sockets), so this kit is a nice add-on. Plus the torque wrench can be used on other cars in a pinch. Highly recommended if one is switching wheels and tires seasonally, or getting away from run flats. Having this in the trunk on a long journey is nice too if you get a flat and need to swap wheels for a bit. So, as usaual, BMW comes through with a high quality, reasonably practical accessory, albeit a little costly.

Pics to follow.

I have the same jack/tool kit in my car. I also like it very much. I also bought an mini donut for a 335i. BMW only sells it over here - I think. The mini donut is VERY thin. I think its mounted on a 3.5 inch wide allot wheel.

The jack cost me 100 euros. The spare alloy wheel and tire was 120 euros.




jack...

I carry this.... it's TPMS safe too.




I like the idea of having an actual spare tire, but in reality I don't want to.

Runs $158 on realoem.com, not including the wheel. Is there a serial number on the donut?

I dug up my old parts invoice. Here are the BMW part numbers:

jack = 71106773536 - 100 euros
spare = 36110445045 - 120 euros

The spare came with the tire mounted on it. It's for a 335i German specs. From what I gather you can not order this wheel/tire in the USA. You could ask a dealer though what they say. ?

I bet that part number exists here. Pricewise, the jack set is around $160 here in the US. I took everything out to look, the torque wrench alone is worth $50-$60, beautifully chromed steel, preset to factory recommendation.

I have a doughnut spare from my Z3. I wonder if it would fit in a pinch?

I also bought the tire change kit. It is $145 from Tischer. The torque wrench is limited only to tire changes - it is preset to 130Nm (unless I'm missing something). Since this is my first BMW, I bought a bunch of stuff from Tischer and treated it as part of the cost of the car. But, considering that basically all you are getting is a scissor jack and limited-use torque wrench, this kit is way over-priced. Would never have considered it if it weren't for my treating it as part of the 128 purchase. But, for a BMW part, maybe that is what is to be expected.

Just used everything to mount my winter wheels. The torque wrench, while limited to tire lug bolt installation, works well. The jack was quick to setup and easy to use to raise the car enough to remove each wheel. I have an electric impact wrench, so that was very handy to free each lug bolt quickly. Aired up the winter tires and am now out for a test ride. All is well so far!

Have to edit my previous entry - although I still think it is overpriced.
Just got my new 128 on Thursday. Changed to my new snow tires yesterday. Got out my faithful hydraulic floor jack, until I noticed the plastic jack points. (Many things have been said about these infamous plastic points, but didn't get the true picture till I saw them in person.)
The options were to break off the jack points, make something to use with my floor jack, or use the new sissor jack that I bought.
Well, the jack kit worked great. Fits in the jack points and the rachet jack handle works better than any sissor jack handle I have ever used. The torque wrench worked great too - made just right for easily loosening/tightening the lug bolts.
Only complaint I have is the nut on the jack is too short. The jack handle barely fits on the nut. You have to hold the jack handle on the nut, while turning, or it keeps slipping off the nut.

I use a 2 ton floor jack when changing my tires or doing an oil change. I bought a regular "hockey puck" and put it in the bowl of the floor jack/arm. Then I jack the car up from those plastic jack points. I have never broken or damaged those plastic things on the car.

Dackel, what are you using to the keep the spare from moving around back there and how much space does it actually take up? Just wondering if I could still fit 2 suitcases back there on top of it for trips...

I don't have anything holding the spare tire in place. It really doesn't move around at all - with that BMW rubber trunk mat. I suppose you could use some tie downs IF you were really worried. But even with braking hard on the autobahn or going around the twisty bits - that spare never really moves much.

Yea... you can put stuff ontop of that spare. (I do all the time) Or just remove it IF you got to transport some large items. I have thrown it in behind the front seats a few times. This spare is very light and only about four or five inches wide. The tire and alloy wheel weigh about 20 Kg's.

That's a nice little setup. I rigged up the same thing. Scissor jack $25, small breaker bar $20, socket $4. I jack barely fits under my donut. The other pieces fit in the compartment under the trunk floor.

I believe the spare tire kit from the e60 would also work. But that kit has a steel wheel/donut and not the alloy one I have from an euro spec e92 335i.

Does this jack kit include something to break the lug bolts besides the torque wrench? My understanding is that torque wrenches should never be used for breaking bolts.

^^I have no idea what the e60 spare tire kit contains. Maybe try asking a dealer. I think if you run a search on the e90 forum you will find some photos as well.

In my jack kit, it only came with a torque wrench. I added one of these German breaker bars. They cost less than ten euros and are really made well. It comes with a reverseable 19mm/17mm 1/2" socket.






You can find this breaker bar in any German super market or hardware store.

For those who have the BMW tire jack kit, can you change the socket on the torque wrench?

foldable wheel chock. To prevent your car from moving while jacking it up. Gotta love these German engineers - they think of everything!
