Thumbs up

Hey Guys, I just purchased some 20" chrome Radial spokes for my 745LI and am in need of tires. They are 20x9 in front and 20x10 in rear. I don't want to lower the car but there will be a gap because of the low profile tires that I will put on the rims. Anyone have any good advice on what size rubber that I should put on that won't be rubberband thin but also that won't be awkwardly fat for these Phat wheels? Thanks.

Nice. 20s on a 745Li.

I've driven a 745Li with 22s. Just thought I'd mention that.

Good luck.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I was looking for 22's but I kept hearing about ride quality and such. In addition the replacemnet tires are too $#@& much money! I currently have 19" "Style 126" triple chrome rims. They are really nice but I wanted the deep lip. I am thinking about selling them but I may keep for back up. Also, I just ordered the AC-Schnitzer wing too. I'll post photos as soon as I get it back from the dealer that is putting my electroics back together (read my orignal "They stole my 745" post)
