F01 Style 252 Wheels .. what you guys think?

Debating if i like this or not.. what you guys think? It has ACS springs but I might raise it back up because wifey likes the OEM comfort more than current setup.

Same wheels I have on my F10. They're brilliant and made a huge difference in the ride quality. Its much softer and more comfortable with the taller tries. Keep in mind those that these wheels are a staggered setup. They went on perfectly without issue. One thing I learned though, probably not the best wheels for track day. Tires this size are kind of pricey

Excellent. How was the weight and body roll on track day? I'm curious as I've done a few in my M3 but not the big 5. I would imagine the tyres groan and howl under the weight on a slalom run or in the chicanes.

Nice TimeFor! Is yours lowered, and any issue with bottoming out or rubbing with the fronts? I got mine for a pretty good deal, $1500 with brand new tires.

Oh I think I noticed more lag on acceleration too, did you notice any?
