Finally Decided on Rims

Hey guys!

So after tons of reasearch and hundreds on emails and PMs, I finally bought a set of rims.

I always like the concave 5-spoke style, so I ended up with the Koko Kuture Sardinia 5 (by Giovanna). I spoke to them and in return for "sponsoring" their rims, I got a huge discount! (sorry, not allowed to reveal)

I got 20"s, 8.5 front and 10 rear. The offsets are quite aggresive, being Et20 for both front and rear. The 5GT is more closely related to the F01 7 series, so Et20 is perfect flush fitment on an F07.

WIll I have to worry about fender rolling and rubbing since it is exactly flush with the fender in the rear, especially on H&R springs?

Also, I attached some renders to get some of your opinions of how it looks. Sorry for the quality Enjoy

The Bentley is just to see a non-photoshopped pic

They look great. In the last pic though, they dont look to be much of a concave look. Might be the PS. I am sure they will look sick though. Congrats !!

The previous ones are nice too, but I wanted to change things up. If you like the rims, hit me up and we could talk about you getting them. They are very rare, discontinued now, and would look great on your GT. Called up BMWNA a few weeks ago and they said this wheel cost $7800, not to mention shipping. Obviously I'll give you a way better deal. HMU

Yea, my PS skills still need some work. It's quite concave, especially at ET20 in the rear.
