BMW 520D Touring with BBC CH-R

This is my 2012 BMW 520D Touring.

I just got these delivered:





A picture from Gotland:

Great choice of wheels for your F11. Am I right when I guess the tire size to be 245/35/20 + 285/30/20.
I assume it's the same wheels as on this F10 from Norway.

Nice rims. Not to sound a little naff but I also like the tread pattern on the tires. Are they the Michellin Super Sport?

Thanks for posting this. I'm will get the same wheels for next summer on my F11. Your car is very similar looking apart from the missing msport package. So this was very usefull! Looks very nice!

What suspension are you running?

Edit:
What is the wheel color?

If you mean the F10 in the link, then yes, it's Michelin PSS.

But if you're refering to the F11 in this theard, looks like it's running on Dunlop Maxx tires.

It's Dunlop SP Sport Maxx tires. Front 255/35R20, Rear 285/30R20.
The reason for the 35 vs 30 is that it is wider in the rear and we don't like to have larger diameter on the rear wheels. It's probably not exactly the same, but roughly.

It has standard suspension at the moment.

Color is Bright Silver

The middle number is the profile of the tire and it tells the sidewall height in percent of the tire width.

So in the front 245mm*35% = 85,75mm
and the rear 285mm*30% = 85,50mm
as you can see those two sizes will have a very similar tire sidewall and diameter.

i'm sure I speak for everyone when I say that we really appreciate your contribution remmiB as well as the guidance of those Modders with years of experience like Infamous, and Lacster, and ... (well, you know who you are).
