    I'm another newbie, I have had a few BM's over the years and have just ordered a new F10 5 series M sport in White, I have to spec it by the end of the week for mid october delivery but I need some help picking the wheels, my heart says go with the 19" twin 5 spokes as an option of £1185 but my head say stick with the standard 18" twin 7 spokes and save the cash! what do you guys think?

    If you go 18's, you'll probably regret it when an identical F10 rolls up at the lights with a set of 19's.. What engine did you go for? The 181bhp 520d is supposed to be brilliant. Many welcomes mate

    This is a quote from Car mag's review of the F10 530d: We tested our car on the optional 18s (£665) and, wouldn’t you believe it, it just so happens that these are the actual size that BMW tailored the dampers for – because they’re a middleground between the standard 17s and big-boy 19s.

    i would say 18's if it comes with RFT's, but go 19's if it has sensible rubber tyres!

    Cheers for the replies guys, yes just went for the 520D but with manual box, a few reasons 1 was price of the auto but both the dealers I quoted against each other both said the manual would get the most out of the 2ltr lump if you wanted to really drive the car if you know what I mean! Also I am sure the 19's are run flats aswell.

    As above, I think the 19" ones fill the arches really nicely.
