Will 303 M wheels from the 7 series fit my 2012 550i w/M-equipment?

Anyone have details and pics would be great!

Yes. Do a search - several people have done this upgrade. They look very good - better than the 351M wheels.

They lok great if you want 20's. Personally, I have a hard enough time with the 19's.

5er GT F07
8.5x20" Front 245/40R20 ET 25 15.10kg
10x20" Rear 275/35R20 ET 41 16.20kg


5er F10
8.5x19" Front 245/40R19 ET 33 14.53kg
9.0x19" Rear 275/35R19 ET 44 14.51kg

Based on the stock F10 front wheel setup, your new wheel will have: 8mm MORE clearance on the strut side, and the outside edge of the wheel will EXTEND an extra 8mm.
Based on the stock F10 rear wheel setup, your new wheel will have: 10mm LESS clearance on the strut side, and the outside edge of the wheel will EXTEND an extra 16mm.

If you were to use the larger F07 tire sizing, your new tire diameter will be 1" larger or 3.6%.

My only comment will be: Man these wheels are heavy!

I just did a copy & paste from the FelgenKatalog, but a quick check at RealOEM confirms that they are 9" and not 9.5". I'll have to edit my original post above since I actually entered 9.5" in the offset calculation. Sorry about the error.
