Yea it's made in Italy by BBS. Using a home scale, its about 23.5 lbs for the front & 24.5 lbs for the rear wheels, am very happy with the looks and color, all I need to do is drop it after I save some $$$

If you do drop it, please post some pics here.

I knew that model wheel was made by BBS because I saw one blogger in another forum was selling them and he took very detailed pics of the wheels.

What M5 wheels? There's no 18" F10 M5 wheels.

Just put these 345M wheels and PSS tires on my 550xi (thanks Alvin). Rears are very aggressive with 34mm offset(19x10) and fronts are slightly aggressive with 32mm offset on 19x9. I'm trying to get the front to match the rear fender gap.

What are the opinions on whether I can I go with a 10mm spacer in front or should I stick with 5mm?

Hi Guys,

I also fell in love with the 345M wheels.

Anybody knows if I can mount them on an F11 with integral active steering?
Remmib, you're the specialist on that field.

Don't know if the integral active steering changes anything to the fitment, but I assume not. Are you plannig on a stagered set with M5 tires, or just wheels with narrower tires?

Here's a F10 with the 345M and OEM M5 tires (265 + 295), looks very aggressive, but no rubbing according to owner.
But it might be safer to get narrower tires like 245 + 275 on the F10 in post #20 on the pervious page here.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I'm planning staggered, but not with the M5 tire size as the diameter is too big. This will rub for sure if you fully load the F11 at rear.

As 245 +275 are the original sizes for the F10/F11 staggered wheels, I'll go for that. And as you said, this will be safer.

Itanium
