Only come in 20"?

Chrome these bad boys and donk-up that caddy in the background.

Wonder what they weigh before chroming.


I should add - I would love to see a performance oriented 5-spoke wheel in 18, max 19 for the 1M/M3. (that don't cost $700/per).

Yes, this is my car. I'm not sure why everyone makes assumptions about the wheels because at the end of the day the car handles better with the new wheel/tire setup than it did with factory wheels. I maintained the overall rolling radius and width in the front so I could go hard into corners, while in the rear I widened the track and grip so the car can put down more power. I can understand why people may not like the look of the wheels or ride quality, but the people who question the functionality of it really do not know what they are talking about.

They look phenomenal, particularly in the rear. Closest to the concept drawing I've seen

I've always liked a clean five spoke design. Not sure it works on the 1M. Maybe an 18 or 19 would work though, the lack of tire on the 20s makes the wheel dominate the wheel well.

To big. I personally think the stock wheels look good. 20's are ridiculous, 19's max.

I think it was posted before on a group dyno day. I may be wrong, but wasn't it this car that had same peak WHP numbers as a bone stock one that was dynoed on the same day (but noticeably more tq tho)?

I'm still waiting for my lift kit so I can do 24x12's in the back. Then I'm writing "Lucky Charms" on the side.
