New wheels are ON.....FINALLY! *pictures*

Finally got around to putting the tires on and mounting them

Miro 111's
Fronts: 19x8.5 w/ 255/50/19
Rears: 19x9.5 w/ 285/45/19 (25mm spacers)

I really like them...I wish they were 20's but at least potholes won't really hurt me!


What do you guys think? I've personally never seen these wheels on an E53

PS: I'm going to lower her with the H&R lowering kit (w/ springs & rear links) ASAP!

BEFORE LOL:


AFTER:

They don't do it for me. It's your car though.

I respect your opinion tmv! To each their own..

Will look better lowered though!


ALSO: Quick question...I want to order the H&R lowering kit w/ links. It doesn't go low enough for me...can I cut the front springs a 'tiny' bit to give it another .5 or so drop? It can't really hurt anything can it?

NEVER cut springs, EVER. Period.

IMO the H&R drop is perfect. If you want to go lower then use coilovers.
