2012 550i lowered on H&R springs and sitting on 20" Vossen CV1's

just got it all done today guessing once the car settles it will have little bit more of an aggressive stance

It looks great. I always wanted to see an F10 with those wheels. What size rear wheel and tire do you have? I looks like the tire is not quite wide enough for the wheel.

Thanks! It's 20x10.5 in the rear with 275/30/20
Recommended by discount tire. Called them this morning and had them order 285/30/20 due to be in on Monday. I don't like the stretched look.

You definitely pulled the stretch look off wrong, that only works if the lip of your rim is flush to the fender, hence the need for the stretch. Once you get the correct tire you'll be good to go!

Thanks, as most especially with the concave wheels pictures do them NO justice and can't capture the effect they give in person.

Def nice rims HMHA. I know what it's like trying to get rubber to fit the beast without stretching it to the extreme. lol. It can only look (and feel) better when you finally get 'em strapped on Monday.
