Mein Auto: 550I
Cross Spoke 312 in Ferric gray 20 inch wheels

Hey guys was wondering if any of you have driven on these 20 inch wheels. Strongly considering purchasing them with my new 550I M that's scheduled for October build. I am just nervous about the ride. Any experience with these or 20's in general?

Joshbw - I pick up my 550i this Saturday. I opted for the 312 wheels. I'll keep you posted on the ride.

I'm considering 20inch Ferric grey wheels on a new F10 I'm ordering soon. I'd be really interested in your opinion on the ride, and love to see images of the new car with the wheels...!

Enjoy!

I took deliver of my 550i a week ago and have the 356 wheels on them. Ride is not bad with the 20" but I had normal tyres on them instead of RFT.

Nice car mlia - and nice wheels. I see your front bumper/air-intake has been extended - was that standard on your 550, or BMW/dealer upgrade?

Is it just me, but that looks far far better than BMW's M-Sport package...

Thank you and yes, I rather have my lips than the M-Sport

That's from the Japanese 3D Design

Possibly the best looking wheels I have seen in a while (obviously everyone to his own)... I went with the std M pack wheels I just could not justify 6k for a set of wheels to get the 20s.

Your set may be, but it is the cross spoke 312 they offer in the USA. I would have worked the dealer a bit had it been the double spoke, same as yours. But I have not even seen those until in this thread. The cross spoke 312 or the 311 is not something I like all that much over the std M wheel. So I did not even spend time on them. Perhaps I will special order yours after a year or two when we will have to get a new set of tires. It is my wife's car anyways. I will stick with the 6.

Have a look at this UK site - they stock all BMW's aftermarket F10 wheels at cheaper prices than dealerships. http://www.alloywheelsdirect.net/bmw...ies_f10_alloys

There is a set just like these on ebay from a BMW dealer for a little over 2k.

Damn... the more I am looking at these the more I like them. I just don't feel dealing with all the ebaying of the ones that will come with the car. These wheels somehow match the car. To me anyways. Very good choice bro.

I think they are one of the best matched wheel selection, even when aftermarket wheels are taken into account. There is a reason why BMW choose pictures of the F10 with these wheels in their marketing brochures all over the place
