see this item 200903990575 going on right now for M6 OE Forged wheels / tires
And if you dont know what are Forged wheels :

================================================== ===

Forged wheels are strong, dense, yet very light wheel that high performance car enthusiasts use for their cars almost exclusively.
The term "forged" refers to making an alloy wheel by forcing a raw block of metal into a shape with extreme pressure.

I bought M5 Reps (non-OEM) wheels for my car two years ago they are all craked.
I'm now busy trying to replace them with OEM wheels. I can't stress how on point the above message is.

Question though, have any of you guys used 3-Series wheels (with spacers obviously) on your E60s. I can get my hands on a 193M E90 335 Sport wheel for dirt?

I have seen some using 3 series wheels (E90/92) on their E60, but it depends on how comfortable you are with large spacers. You will need 20-25 mm spacers to make them work, a little smaller if you are looking at M3 wheels. I have a buddy with M3 wheels on his 545 running 20mm up front and 15mm in the rear with no issues.

Yep, exactly why I bought OEM m5 rims. Got them for 1k.

I've run over plenty of stuff and no vibrations, leaks, odd occurrences after that.

Ah thanks.
There was link that I got from here (not this thread) to a german website that allowed you to choose models and gave your wheel sizes that would fit.
