Smile 21 inch Wheels

Is anyone running 21 inch BMW wheels. I'm interested in the style 375s but it looks like its impossible to get anything other than Dunlop DSSTs for them. Any comment on the ride versus 20s? Have 20 inch style 336 now and the ride is fine. Thanks in advance, pics would be great.

The problem with 21" wheels is you are extremely limited to tire brand. Dunlop SportMax RFT are the only choice in recommended size. Going to 22" there is a better choice of rubber and really you won't feel any difference in ride between the two sizes.

Think you can get Michelin Diamaris as well but I wouldnt go with noon run flats because of the safety issue associated with the size and the price of the rims
