Hi, the search is your friend. Most of those issues have be covered in extreme detail.

The tire thing can be a ton of different problems. Without more info we can not help. For example: tire size, wheels, lowered, suspension setup?
No more ti.

Sorry that you're having problems. Don't let the car overheat again, and make finding and fixing the overheating problem your first priority. BMW engines don't take kindly to overheating. Good luck.
