Which rims? The M5 replicas or the Forgestar CF5?
As you can see in my build thread, I have recently switched over to a new set of wheels and tires.

The M5s are low pressure cast replicas in non-staggered setup (4x19x8.5 ET35) with Goodyear LS2 runflats tires.
The Forgestar CF5 are in staggered setup (20x9F + 20x10R) with Hankook Ventus V12 tires.
I got them both from Alan************. Great guy to work with.

Ride quality with the LS2 are ok, but they simply don't compare to the Hankooks. The RFTs are noisier and harsher on the ride.
The new 20s combo feel much like my original 17" wheel/tire setup in terms of ride quality (but better handling due to the ACS).
