M6 GC wheels on the F10 M5?

I'm really digging the stock wheels for the M6 Gran Coupe - wondering if they would even fit on the F10 M5 and if so, how'd they look.

Anyone with some good Photoshop skills care to take a shot at it?

I just took a look at the M6 GC and the wheels do look nice, but was surprised to find the tires are 20" run flat. I guess BMW thinks the GC is slightly removed from the high performance of the other Ms?

What? That's absurd - BMW needs a spanking.

Where did you see this? Do you remember the make and model of the tires?

Just did some googling and found this pic of an autoshow car. Looks like Michelin PSS just like our M5 tires.
