    Smile Floor jack usage

    I plan to change my wheels shortly (getting rid of those run flats) and wonder where the safest place is to position a floor jack (front and rear).
    Thanks,

    There are rubber capped jack points under the sills, you can see them clearly if you lie down beside the car.

    I am a reasonable mechanic and enjoy working on my cars:
    I have chosen the Michelin PS2s after reading many posts on our site.
    Thanks for the comments.

    I plan to buy new OEM wheels and have BMW or our local world class porsche shop mount the tires. I have already purchased the Michelin PS2s.

    note some cars are missing the rubber jack points (ours were missing as we found on the monterrey trip). They were really cheap to get installed though...
