BTW, you can put BMW roundels from ebay on the Miro wheels. I did that on my set of Miro M6 wheels.

Yep... I have been running 315's all around for the past 3 years. It allows front to back rotation and greatly extends tire life. Yes 30mm H&R in the rear. I dig the Miro caps myself..

I didn't know 315/20s would fit in the front. I've always believed that it is too wide. Definitely a great idea of being able to rotate tires to save wear and tear on the rear ones.

If only I had known, I could have done the same.

I thought the same thing at first. Their is actually plenty of room in the front wheel wells for those bad boys. Maybe next time...

Are the wheels the same ones that the X5M has?
