Avant Garde M580 Custom

2011 535i with new summer wheels - 19 inch AG M580 with brushed face, polished windows and barrels, 8.5 inch on front, 9.5 inch on rear. Car is lowered on H&R Sport springs, and I mounted P Zero runflats, 245/40 on the front and 275/35 on the rear. Big appearance change from the Rohanna RC22's I had on last year, which just couldn't take the road abuse. Not sure yet whether to use BMW center caps.

Looks good! Need more pictures. Any reason you stuck with 19's and not 20's?

This spring, when I was taking off my winter wheels, I noticed that the cast 19 inch Rohana wheels I used for 4 months last summer needed repairs: one had a bend and there were tiny hairline cracks in in the rim paint on all of them. I decided to get new wheels, and looked at 20's (much more choice than 19's). In the end I was concerned that 20's would suffer even more damage as a result of the reduction in tire profile, and I just couldn't justify springing for forged wheels, because the car is getting on. The 19 inch AG's are much beefier than the Rohana's, so hoping they do better.

That said, I think the 19's look really great on the car now that it is lowered -- to my eye, the wheel wells look properly filled.

Ate your roads that bad in your area?
