What did u have to do to get the M3 rims to fit?
Youre missing the point of the board. If there's nothing to talk about, then make something up that will annoy Jayson
hahah, have a great weekend guys, and happy thanksgiving to all you yanks :2: LOL
Jayson,Jayson said:I love this 20" wheel crap.
People hate them cuz they are 20"s? THat wheel is ugly hate it for that alone.
ALot of 20"s look good size wise it fills the fender nicely.
You wanna talk about hurting performance? Dont' put 275 on the front dont' run wider rubber, run smaller wheels and more narrow rubber...and o yeah dont' drive a 4000 lb car.
the reality is if you where blind folder and drove a car you prob wount' notice the 2 lb difference. it's in your head 95 percent of the time.
you want alight true sports car and hate on 20" wheels...get a porche gt3.
whats even more funny is very few people acualy use their car hard enough to notice a 17-20" wheel difference.
can you tell this argument really annoys me?
Now that we know that you can be annoyed by the 20 inch tire talk, how do you feel about the CAI subject? You do realize you have just set yourself up for some real cute comments about everything from car color to proper leather care. Not trying to harpoon you here but you have seen the number of different threads here and you know someone is going to able to come up with a legit reason for staying below 20 inch wheels. I would have to say the ability for them to withstand pot holes has got to leave something to be desired damage wise.
I can take it, tell me me what you really think.
Listen Jason it is really simple to explain.Jayson said:I always set my self up cuz what is say makes to much sence But if sombody tells me car color makes it faster that will annoy me too. The difference is nobody says that...years ago 17" wheels where "optimum" for street performance, now the enzo runs 19"s the carrera gt 20"s on the rear
So I guess those are slow huh
That right Dan...BeastPower said:My opinion:
- 18" is best for the performance of the M5.
- 19" is a compromise between looks and performance.
- 20" is the best looking wheel on the M5.

We are not talking about sizes only here but just as much central force of a bigger wheel. A M5 uses some were around 30 Bp more to pull the 20" than the 18" IF not even more.
This is proven many times.
For example take a bicycle wheel. Put your finger inside it just as the far to the tire as possible.. Now turn the wheel. Then take your finger and out in as close to center as possible. turn it again and you will realise that it is harder to turn. WHY?? central force and the size is still the same.
The central force on a 20" is much bigger than on your 18" so it is simple 18" is faster wheels than 20"
Here is another thing.
Keep your 20" wheels on the car go to a freeway or a road were you have the chance to speed. Take the time yur car accelerates from 45 Mph - 100 Mph ( 60-170 Km/h) And a time from 60 Mph - 125 Mph ( 100-200 Km/h)
Write these times down. Put on you 18" on and do these times again.
You will be surprised dude :wroom:
