Hi All, this is my first post, had my M6 for about 6 months now and loving it, it is 2007 car in black with individual champaigne leather, i am a wheel specialist in Engalnd, www.bmautosport.co.uk , some of you may know me.Anyway it gives me pleanty of opportunity to play with wheels and tyres, so i am thinking about trying 305/25/20 on the rear, as everyday wheels i use 20" AC5 forged wheels (nice and light weight at around 10kg per wheel, which makes car feel a little faster!) with 10", they are et33 and i am running 28mm spacers giving me an et5! I have 285/30/20 at the moment and with this off set they sit very close to the arch but dont touch, i have 255/35/20 front on the 9's with 15mm spacers on the original et22 wheels. I want the wheels to look a little bigger and also some more grip at the rear, so am thinking 255/30/20 front and 305/25/20 rear but not sure if they will go ok with no problem, i think i will have to use a 20mm spacer to give me the clerance on the arch, so i was just wondering if anyone else is running 305's and if so how you find them within the arch and do they feel better than the 285's?

Here is a pic of the car at a recent BMW show, but these are my 22" show wheels, 9" et2 with 255/30/22 and 10.5 et25 with 295/25/22



Hope you like and when i get a chance i will post a new thread with some more pics and interior pics.

Thanks Guy's, when i get a chance i will post a new thread with more pics of the car and interior and the spec details etc! Just got the RPI scoops and BMC filters to go on and had it remapped so am looking forward to seeing what it will be putting out. Had it Rolling roaded and it done 497bhp at fly wheel before any mods which i am told is pretty good as not many make the 507! so am hoping for around 520-530 after the mods!
