Whoa, what size are those? They look huge. This setup wouldn't last too long in MTL with our ridiculous roads. Do you have any pics without a fisheye lens? It's hard to gauge how they really look. Color is amazing!

Which ones are these? Not sure whether these are 19" (maybe 18" winter tires?)
Anyway, IMHO goes well with AW. Wondering how these would look on a VO, but think they'll suit too.

Your 1M is sitting low. How much lowered compared to stock ? Any other remarks to fit these wheels (or was it simply plug and play) ? And what tires are those: 245/35R19 front and 265/35R19 rear ?

I do not intend to lower my 1M (otherwise the ground clearance will be insufficient on some roads and parking lots I regularly use).

Thanks.

20" wheels on the 1M = a species rarely seen in the wild ! Only for the brave.

I am not a fan of the BBS logo but I love this wheel and due to their good pricing as well they are actually my number 1 candidate for an eventual replacement of the stock wheels (like Artemis) on my VO 1M. I am expecting him to post some pictures on his VO soon, so I may pull the trigger already. I checked the tirerack and some other sources and saw that the only and very minor disadvantage is they are slightly heavier than the stock but negligable amount, a total of 1.7 kg. heavier for a set, but since my Michelin PSS weigh sightly less than stock PS2s, it almost comes even at the end! My question is if I go with them can I keep the center cap of BMW stock rims with these BBS wheels? Is it kind of standart size? Very probably BBS produces the stock BMW wheels in Germany so I am hoping yes they fit. Maybe Golo has a better idea on this or he will be kind enough to try one for me

Contacted my tire dealer earlier this week re availability as initially scheduled. Reply: "Tires are available and rims should arrive by the end of this month… I hope".

Another Belgian 1M got the same 19" setup last December and confirmed that no changes to the 1M stock set-up were required for fitting. No rubbing. His rims sport the BBS roundel (instead of the BMW roundel).

Will post pictures once I get my new gunmetal shoes.
