Which rim between these two for my F11?

Which of the wheels here (planning to buy one of these) suit the car better in your opinion?

Choice 1 - 5GT rims (top). Classic and I can see driving these for a long time.

Choice 2 - Speedlines. Bit flashy or?

Choice 3 - not presented in poll but these are 20s, Breyton GTS Race.

Those speedlines are gaudy, sorry to say. I think some 343M's would look great on a F11.

Im going between these two choices actually, thanks for you input though! For some reason I dont want to install rims that go on M5... dont know why, just too common and see them everywhere by now.

303M's look better than either of those options.

Between the two, I'd go with the top for a "sportier than stock" look but mesh wheels look more custom. I had 20" 464M wheels that came with my car but got bored with them because they're an OEM wheel and didn't look custom enough for me.

Which one do you prefer?

Tried these on today guys, What do you think?

RACE GTS 20s. Not too bad? A bit of a batmobile but I can always respray the rims which have some kerb rash on one anyway - they are slightly used but price is very good. Should I?

I like the rims but silver would suit more I feel.

Much better than the first two! And I'd powder coat them satin black!

Yeah, one try and I realised you guys are all on to it with the 20s. I thought they would look bad on xdrive but they dont.

btw, is 255-35-20 OK tyres size to fit? Im going with 8.5x20 and square setup. Tyre size calculator says 1% difference to stock all around - anyone have this tyre by any chance - does it rub?

255s seem like they would be meaty. My preference.

I like the GTS 20s.

Also that M badge.......

I run 255's on my 219.5's so those GTS's are they 9.5's?

8.5x20 all around. So bit chunky tyre that came with the rims. I plan on replacing tyres later, need to sell a set of 19s Michelins PSS first. Gonna go for Michelin PS4s or Conti 6s once trade is done, hopefully. Thanks for the input, happy with my choice!

What M badge, you mean on the wing? I think BMW now sticks them on every Msport car, who cares. I got the car used. Might be taking it off as it irks me just a bit, but other priorities at the moment. Will deal with it once detailing the car...

Tyres look meaty and I like it too. Happy with the setup, now that its on!
