2011 550 MSport Rims & Tires

2011 550i MSport White with staggered 351M rims 8.5X19 front and 9.0X19 rear. Current tires are Dunlop SP Sport Max GT RFT front: 245/40/19 and 275/35/19 rear.

I am not excited about the 351M's and am actively looking for aftermarket rims and wheels. I like the look of the D2 VS1, VS5 and CV1 rims. I want to move up to a 20X9 on the front and 20X10 or 10.5 on rear.

Yes, I have used the search function and found some information; however, most posts fail to list specs like rim width (front and rear), tire specs, did rims need spacers, how the new setup impacted ride using factory ride as benchmark, lowering lit brand and how much a particular kit lowered the vehicle, etc.

I would greatly appreciate any feedback from other 550i owners who have gone aftermarket regarding setup and specs. I am not set on RFT vs. NRFT.

This are the wheels I ordered. Not ready yet. And the h&r springs are popular. Usually they lower the car 1.3 on the rear and 1.4 on the front. The wheels are forged1 wheels and this picture was shared by George from forged1 wheels

Those look great. I would really like to move up to 21 inch rims but the selection is limited and wheel choices are also limited.
