haha Quack, Great Taste...I went to see those rims yesterday, because my dealer had it in, and they are 100 times nicer in real life...the deep dish is beautiful! Best of all, I picked up the rear rim, and I couldnt believe how light it was...

Does anyone actually have the two rims on a BM, or how about we get some posts with pics of Bm's with custom rims!!

neither.

BBS LM's all the way, or OEM BBS wheels from an E39 w/ sport pkg.

SSR wheels own. TSW's are prone to bending, I've seen a lot.

Ya i'd stay away from the TSW's, no where NEAR the same quality as the SSR's!
Besides, the ssr's look hotter, but i agree with MIGUEL, LM's man, nothing looks hotter!

I hear GT3's are also on the soft side.

Honestly guys, i love the 5 double-spoke look rims the best...the LM's seem to be too much of a rim, whereas I like the more "check out the calipers and rotars" look..now, all i need is some E55 4 piston brakes*love* *love* *love*
I hope the new M5 will have some stunning brakes like the E55's...wow they are impressive, and I've driven it, WHAT A CAR (but still doesnt compare to M5)

I kinda like the look of the TSW. The 19's would look sweet on an M5.

go get a BBK from Brembo, they have multi-piston calipers,
by the way the new E55 has 8 pistons calipers, the old E55 only had 1 big piston

I have Dinan suspension it's lower then an M5 would be stock. Also my new GT3's are 18's. I wanted more tread and a more comfortable ride in my old age, so I got 18's. I don't think they would tuck with the stock M5 springs.
