Thanks, Kevin. I just got the standard silver finish.

Have gotten a few pm's for wheel specs and realized I forgot to include widths. They are 9.5" front and 10.5" rear.

As I mentioned above, if your sitting on Eibach's and 255 tires up front, et +23 (+/- 1-2mm) would prevent any chance of rubbing. There is a slight rub on large dips (got one today) with et +20. Love the look the look, but wishing I bumped the offset up, just a tad.

Went with the Deep Concaves in the front at et +20, and Super Deep Concaves in the rear at et +35. Rims are wrapped with Continental ExtremeContact DWS 255/35 R20 and 285/30 R20 and sitting on Eibach springs.

A few quick phone pics right after install - will try to post more in a few days.

Good looking wheels I have a similar set in Gloss Gunmetal but went w/ no concave in the front and SDC rear.

Where did you get the BMW center caps to fit the Forgestars?

Looks great!

I paid extra for the center caps when I bought the wheels. You should be able to contact your supplier and purchase them too. Couldn't tell you who makes, unfortunately.

His signature says Megan Racing Coilovers.

You got to have coilovers to get a F10 that low, (or air suspension).

Sent you a PM, love them! Going on 8 months ride quality is great. They are fully adjustable, but I have not adjusted them since I originally got them dialed in after my install.

Could those of you who have coilovers now confirm that you DIDN'T originally have the full adaptive suspension?

I cant really remember, i know i didnt touch the back at all (other than ride height) The front i think i turned them 2-3 stiffer, but it was back in Feb when i did it, so im guessing.

I got SDC F14s from Forgestar with the specs above for my 550i. 9.5 x 20 ET 11 Fronts.

I'm about to use H&R springs to lower the car.

What alignment specs should I use with these wheels to make the fronts tuck in?

Can you recommend a shop for alignment and maybe even install in SoCal?

does anyone have a pic of what they would look like on a comp package F10?

Whats the most aggressive offset/sizing you can get without running into rubbing issues while retaining oem tire sizing from comp package? I see that everyone is going with a slightly narrower tire?

I can lower the car with any aftermarket goodies as wifey will drive it too..

Thanks for any input guys!!

Sorry for late reply, yes I'm thinking F10 M5.. now I'm debating if I should go for comp package at all.. since most F10 M5's come equipped with 20's that comp package would come with, just no springs.. so my questions would be on factor F10 M5 whats the most aggressive offsets I can get a way with retaining OEM 20" tires?

I did mentioned that since wifey would be driving it lower is not an option, but I've read decent reviews on aftermarket lowering springs for F10 M5 and hopefully she will be able to manage with a slight drop.

Thanks for your input in advance!

p.s. would definitely like to go for F14's Super Deep Concaves if possible :-)
