You can't go wrong with an M6 wheel, it's a classic. Matte black will look mean once you mount them.

I just needed a different look. I'd also feel more comfortable driving on 20's than 22's.

I agree with you. the 22's may look nice but not the safest bet in keeping the wheels from getting hammered. Personally I would never move from my current 19's because I feel much better with a bit more rubber between the rims and the crappy roads. This winter has made the driving conditions here in the northeast a bit more adventurous because of the craters we have now on the roadways.

+3 on this guys! I drove from South NJ (Mt. Laurel) to North NJ (Bloomfield) this morning and I saw many potholes along the way that could take out a 19" rim easily...let alone a 22" with thin tires. I will go 21" max when the time comes in the summer, but that's still pushing it.

These roads are TERRIBLE this year...worst I have ever seen.

Thanks for the comments guys. Although i never ran into any problems with the 22's, I was always nervous about driving it around, even though our roads aren't too bad in norcal, I'd just feel more comfortable with a slightly bigger tire.

Thanks guys! I'm glad I made the switch. The ride is like night and day compared to the 22's. A lot smoother and a little less bumpier!!
