Tire and Wheel Sizing

Those with aftermkt wheels or are planning on getting aftermkt wheels, are you going wider than stock on tires? I believe stock is 265/295, can the m5 take a wider track without modification?

If so, what did you go with?

And are you going with 20 or 21? I can't decide which is better. 21s look nicer on such a big car, but the roads out here suck and looking at pics, the tire on a 21 looks like a rubber band.

I will be using the stock PSS tires (sooo damn good) and running a 20x9.5 up front and 20x10.5 in the rear. I think a 20x11 is too wide for a 295 tire.

HRE is my wheel of choice.
