My 2013 550i X-drive with OEM 464m Wheels

My 550 is a company car so I had to go for a simple but elegant stock look. So 21"s were out of the question....ugh! The car has H&R springs, M5 spoiler, 464m wheels with 10mm spacers in front and 20mm spacers in the rear, carbon black license plate frames and window tint.

Wow, absolutely amazing. Those look better than the M5 wheel IMO. Great taste in mods.

I thought I was aggressive with my 18mm spacer on the rear. What company spacers did you use? Do you think 10mm was perfect for the front (vs 12mm). It looks perfect from the pics

Thanks pkancel and BigDeep1.

I thought 10mm looked good so I never tried anything else. I could have probably gone with 12mm. In rear I had 15mm and it didn't match the front so I switched to 20mm and it looks much better now. Here are the spacers I ordered.

Thanks for looking!

I have the reflector replacements. Hopefully I'll get a chance this weekend to install. I'm not sure on the black grills.

Those wheels look great. I decided to go with the M5 5 spoke because of cleaning issues. My "08 550i M-Sport had similar wheels but drove me crazy cleaning the brake dust out from in-between the spokes.

They're actually not as bad as I thought they would be as long as you keep them relatively clean. I'm going to wax the rims with smartwax rim wax which will make it even easier. Thanks for the compliment!

Those OEM wheels with the spacers makes the car looks great.

I agree with bigdeep, those wheels look better than the M5's, really lovely choice.
I am a big fan of the almost OEM look, you have hit that perfectly

OEM+ modding at it's best, nice job! I am also looking at going with an OEM+ wheel upgrade, but not the M5 wheels as it seems that is what everyone went with.

That is one sweet company car. It looks like the tires are Dunlop SP Sport Maxx. Do you mind letting me know what size tires your running?
