I'm not running winter tires this season. I'm using my summer tires with the 166's. I don't drive the M5 often. It's like backup wheels so I don't damage my 20's over the winter. I put them on today so I can dismount the tires off my 20's so I can put them on my new set of wheels. I'm rubbing in the rear on dips.

Oh, and you're right about the lugs - they come with black ones that are dead ringers for the stock variety. Another nice touch.
Yes sir. You have great attention to detail.

Thanks. I think I'll just throw the wheels on and go from there. If I think spacers will give it a better stance and can clear, I'll let everyone know for their reference. To the OP, your M has a perfect flush look! Surprised there is no rubbing.

I'm also surprised I haven't had any issues. I will update if I do though. I will get a full car (5ppl) later this week and see if that causes any issues and report back.
