[attachmentid=16508] I'm interested in putting Hamann PG2's on my 540 with a sport suspension, but I can't decide if I should get 18s or 19s. I like the ride with my present 17s, so I don't want a harsh ride. But at the same time, I don't want to go through the expense of putting on new wheels if I won't SEE a noticeable difference. Hmm... what a dilemma.
17" is the max for me! for winter? back to 15" stock= "function over design" period. 19" on a 5 series sounds-to me- like taking an F-16 for food shopping at a Pathmark. Overkill; and remember even Chris Bangle couldn't deal with his delimma of "design over function"
There's nothing like seeing a sweet ride like that going down the highway w/ fatties on the back / lowered / with those rims...I have 18's and love it. Performance is great, don't really notice big difference on the bumps as opposed to 17's
