I personally think the M6 wheels suck, shows too much of the brakes!

I like the 166's but I have to say if I had to choose between the two it would be close and I think I would take the m6.

I saw a Chevy Caprice yesterday, circa late 80's
Jacked WAY up with 24" chrome wheels.

How did I know they were 24".
Because the car had custom decals which said, and I quote:

"Yez theze r 24" sucka no rubz"

With all due respect and apologizes to M6 owners, the M6 wheels are absolutely hideous. Sorry. Its really quite shocking when one considers all the great wheels made for BMW thru the years. To have 20 inch rims and use so very little alloy in the spokes, completely defeats the purpose of having distinctive and large wheels.

Going one further, they look very similar to the 19 inchers on the Infiniti M45 Sport. OMG

I'll chime in here. The M6 rims look fine to me only if you have cross-drill rotors and huge calipers. That is an awesome look. Putting the M6 rims on over the stock e60 rotors and calipers? Eh... No.

With all due respect to all the e63 owners, Marc545i hit it on the head. Stock e63 rims does not do the car justice. The front apron/bumper is unattractive as well. Slap on the M-tech aero kit front bumper and M6 rims, now that is a gorgeous car! Yes, I know the M-tech aero is not available yet for the e63 in the US. It is over in Europe though.

I am by no means hating on the e63. I found the front apron/bumper of the e60 butt a$$ ugly. That was my primary reason for going with the M-tech aero kit.
