Anyway, the 550i I found has 225/50R17. Is that the base model and standard rim? I was under the impression that 550i comes with 18" standard, am I incorrect?

The standard rim on the 550 is the 17". With the M-sport package, the car has 19" rims. In my opinion, the Sport package completely transforms the look of this car. Keep in mind that manual transmission 550s are hard to find. In 2008, they made less than 500 of them. 2009 and 2010 are even rarer. I've noticed that quite a few of the manual trans cars do not have the sports package, which is kind of weird.
