Pictures of the M5 with BBS LM Wheels

Hello everyone,

Just got my silver 2003 M5 a couple weeks ago and I love it. I used to have a white 2002 M5 that I was very stupid for selling...but I am back with a beast!

Here's some photos of the car, with my new 19" BBS LM wheels with Michelin PS2 tires. My first mod is finished! Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Re: Pictures of the M5 with BBS LM Wheels

The wheels are 19" x 10" rear and 19" x 8.5" front. The tires are 275/30/19 rear and 245/35/19 front. The handling seems a little bit more firm, precise, and the ride is roughly the same as stock, maybe 10% or 15% more harsh on bumps though. These tires are pretty sticky, so there is more grip off the line but if you push the car too hard from a standstill you have to watch out for wheel hop.

It is nice that the ride didn't change too much. Also, from the pictures I took it kinda looks like it could use some lowering, but when you see the car in person it looks fairly low, especially the rear. I would probably lower it for the killer looks but I would regret it since I live right in the heart of Atlanta!

gorgeous!! Personally I've always thought the M5 looks superb in silver. Were you in Buckhead earlier this evening? I think I saw your car by Phipps?
