Current look ... need ispiration for new wheels!

Hi Guys,

Here is what the M5 looks like at the moment and it is time to change the look for 2019. What would you guys suggest and should I stick to 21's or go to 20's? Looking for a more aggressive stance so please post up pics and specs of what you are running for inspiration.

Thanks

I say leave it! Your wheels are aggressive already and the wheel color matches your body pieces. Looks great!

I agree, I would leave well enough alone for now.

I wouldn't go near 21" wheels on UK roads, 20s are OK but any bigger and the ride will be awful.

Maybe change your exhaust tips as chrome looks a bit poor.

Have a look at the set I have, these would make a huge difference looks wise.

Have you increased performance yet as a stage 1 tune would be worthwhile?

I have had the 21's on my car for the last 2 years and no issues with UK roads what so ever.

I had black tips on the car but they got lost in the rear hence the chrome tips which flow with the bolts on the wheels.

I am running a map and pushing around 650 at the moment and also exhaust has been modified.

Really just looking to change the wheels to give the car a different look.

Ah cool fair enough, brave man with the 21s

Were the tips just standard BMW or the bigger diameter ones?

Car looks really nice great colour

I know I said don't change the look, but my wheels would look sick on your car. And ironically they are for sale

Sell those wheels and get some chrome/silver 5 spokes where you can see the caliper and shields properly,20''or maybe 21''again.
