530I Rims

Hello everyone. I just got a 530I and know nothing about rims. I am looking at getting a 20' but what brand should I go with that won't break the bank?

Agreed, 20 is a bit much. It would be a rough ride along with body/fender issues...

do yourself a favor and take 18"
looks better, feels better, and is better for your banks

+ 1....18" Rims will be alot better than 20" and will be cheaper on tyres.

530I Rims

Oh I wouldn't want any issues with my fender... If its standard 17' I don't think 18' will make a big difference? Would I have a problem with 19'?

Also, I feel a jerk sometimes when I brake is that normal? I didn't have this problem with my 330 and I just go my brakes changed.

06'

My friend had went on tirerack.com told me that 20' should be fine on my car if I went with Front(25/30) and Rear(295-25)?

question: can the M5, 17" rims fit 530-2002 with no issues?

Any one did it?

I know! that's why I wanted 20's on mine. Anyways I got a good deal on some Rims made by BBS on Nitto's, staggered, and will be putting them in this week. Can't wait to see how they look on my baby!

Thanks for your input!
