Introduction to my new 5 series

Hello everyone!
After a long absence from the BMW family, I'm finally back into my new to me 5 series. I found a nice equipped 2015 BMW 550xi.
So I do have some questions, I'm not a fan of these run flat tires. My plan was switch them out and get some new tires and a 20" rims for the summer. Then when winter came about I would switch the rft back in. Any recommendations for rims, I was planning on using Michelin pilot sports for my tires.

Welcome! and awesome looking ride.

As for the run flats, I ditched mine as soon as I could and got a set of Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+. These are really good for all year around (sun, rain & even snow).

Hi, thank you for the recommendation! I was looking at the same ones.

Welcome and congrats!

I've heard great things about Michelin tires, but have no personal experience with them. I have used Continental Extreme Contact DW and DWS tires, and have loved them.

Just my 2cents

Good looking car, what color is that btw? The angle is making it look grey or almost cashmere silver.
