    M6 wheels/rims

    Just been to my local BMW dealer.
    They had a new M6 in the shop and I wanted to see if these rims would fit the big BREMBO brake kit which I had installed. They looked very good and more in harmony with teh car then my present Alpina(20") rims. They fitted even better than the Alpina rims (no need for a spacer any more on front wheels). Now I just have to wait and see what they will want to charge me for them. Any of you can give me hint what you paid for them?

    Regards
    Z8-NL, Klaus

    Paid for the rims less than 2.500 Euro.

    thanks Kai.

    they quoted me 2,125 ex vat. so similar.
    what tyres have you put on them. They suggest Michelin MPS same as M6 has.

    regards
    Klaus

    They look really sharp! How does the weight compare to the stock rims?

    we weighed the rims at the shop (at least the rear rims to compare). The M6 rims with tires weigh 24.2kg against the 20" Alpina of 25.8kg. I assume the stock rims plus tires will weigh more then the Alpina's especially with the runflat option incorporated.

    Switched my old Bridgestone S-03 (245/40 and 275/35) from the Schnitzer-rims onto the M-rims.

    Can you post a close up of the front and rear to see how the Brembo Big brakes look in contrast to the M6 wheels?

    This car is presently for sale in Miami and on ebay.

    Saw the photos of the M6 rims on this Topaz car and wanted to save them in the event anyone is presently, or will be considering these wheels in the future and is wondering how they would look.

    I think those wheels look great on Klaus' black Z8 but not so much on the Topaz. The M5 wheels you have compliment the car much more or the stock ones.

    I too like the open look on the black car. Gives it a bit of an edge. They look very out of place on the Topaz.

    Not sure about them when I saw them in person -- maybe with the big brake kit?

    I know this is bumping a very old thread, but are there more images available of the 167-style M6 wheels on various colors by any members?

    I want these wheels for my Z8 as well but am having the hardest time tracking them down for a reasonable price. The fronts are available however the rears are not to be found. Full sets are going for crazy money...$3500+. My search continues.
