BMW OEM 312 style Ferricgray wheels

I am in the process of ordering the 20" OEM 312 style wheeles for my M sports. What is your opinions on these? Anything I should be aware before placing order? Do you think 20" is too big for F10?


Thanks

No, 20" is the perfect size, looks wise, IMO.

I think they are a very good looking wheel. My only reservation is that, at the price, you can get aftermarket wheels that will be strong enough and very light.

They will look good, but at 33 1/2 pounds each it's more show than go.

I did the same and the 20's are perfect...My only suggestion is not get the Run Flats...I had them originally and then swapped them out for top of the line Michelin...night and day and much smoother and enjoyable ride

Topview,

Did you lower the car or the gap looks smaller when you install 20's?

How many miles are you getting from your 20'' michelins? Is the price much more than for a 19'' rim?
