Hello all

Has anyone changed from the throwing star 17" E34 M5 wheels on their M5 to the more current 18" E39 M5 wheels?

I have done this - with the 275/35's back and 245/40's front.

Has anyone had any problems? I haven't yet - but I am thinking of changing the back to 265's to be sure. Also no high speed runs yet in the new wheels, so I have'nt fully tested them yet.

These wheels sure are heavier than the 11kg (?) originals, thats why I may change back to the 17's, I just had to try them on - as they look so **** good.

pics attached.

Hi

That looks awsome. What was the price for the entire set?

(what did you pay in swedish kroner?)

All the best,

Hi Micsor

Yep it does look awesome, I bought them off a guy in Mantorp through Autopower.se, they cost 13,000sek (1,000GBP), and the rubber all round is new, Bridgestone Potenzas back and Kumho Ecsta front.

Although they look good, I still feel a pang of regret for the old ones, something about them you know, cant quite finger it.
