Re: Any Performance Advantage in 19"or 20" Rims
rims on the rear of formula one cars are 13"--and feather light--so this tells you something about rim size for performance. race cars rarely go over 18"--even street exotics--mostly run 18" rims from the factory. however, the push for asthetics is high for consumers--the carerra gt has 20" on the rear i believe. with that much power you wouldn't notice the difference--but racers still use smaller diameters.
20" rims on an m5 would be hideous in my opinion.
