will this tire fit on the stock wheel of the m5?http://www.mickeythompsontires.com/street.html
Those tires are for show cars or street drags & not approved for use on an M5 or similar high speed vehicle. They are not designed to withstand heat plus speed. In addition, the Mickey Thompson carcasses do not provide any lateral performance at all (turns).

With no speed rating whatsoever, so they could explode with typical M5 usage.

Look for something with a Z rating or higher. Ratings of R, S, T, H etc are grossly inadequate. Even a Dodge Neon or minivan comes with speed-rated tires.
