Thumbs up Spyshots of 2012 BMW F10 M5 sporting NEW wheels!

Here are the newest F10 M5 spy photos, featuring a new set of wheels which have yet to be spotted on the new M5. The next M5 is expected to utilize a turbo charged V8 engine derived from the motor used in the X5 and X6 M.

Oh So Lovely

The rims actually look pretty good, kinda reminds me of the M6 rims, but suites the M5 better. So far so good BMW. Looking forward the finalized product.

not only does the f10 m5 share the same engine as the x5m, but now it sports the same wheels too!

At very quick glance they might sorta look similar, but definitely not the same.

X5M's spokes are slightly more apart, especially at the end, and the M5 wheels have a lot more concavity and bend to the spokes.

They look almost the same. Almost.

I guess he's talking about the X6 M wheels which are pretty similar:

Well Porsche and Mercedes might be nicer but I see the same RIMS shared across cars all the time. I like how BMW makes one unique to a model - I think they have wayyyy more selection then Mercedes or Porsche.

Is it just me or do the rear tires in that first shot look REALLY wide?

sure it's my imagination, but looks sweet with wide tires like that.
