i would like to see pics of the wheels you have on your M's.
can you please state what size/ make /or had an effect done..... and if you required spacers to make the look right.
i really do like OE ones but must admit iv seen some stunning ones out there and i just want a nosy.
mine with OE no spacers...although i think i could push it to 10/15 mm....just to fill it out a bit more ;)

Must confess to being a bit of a wheel nut (excuse the pun)but I think wheels make a car, I had these on sale recently but had no offers so decided to put on over winter.
Last 2 pictures of my previous car

Hartge classic alloys 19" with Hartge 20mm spacer on rear.
Rim size 8" fronts - 9.5" rears
Car has Schnitzer lowered suspension and Bilsteins all round

Swamper, if you do it make sure its something a little special, the roadstars are a great wheel so it needs to be....

I will say since removing them and returning back to OEM the the difference in traction is monumental, the extra width on the back plays a huge part
