    Hi Chuck, I am new to Bimmerfest, in search of an answer to my question. I want to put M5 wheels on my '06 550i and noticed that you recently did the same thing with your 530i. I called my BMW dealership and asked whether or not they would fit. They said yes if i used a smaller size tire. However, they highly discouraged me from doing so, saying that i would encounter suspension issues, traction control issues, etc. Have you encountered any problems since you put M5 rims on your 530? Do u notice any performance issues at all? Would you mind replying to my email? I would VERY much appreciate your feedback. I don't want to purchase these wheels until i get this answered. I'm at: martyflynn@mac.com. Thank you very much!
