With its mighty V10 under the hood and 500hp on tap, 380lb/ft of torque – not to mention that fantastic noise the S85 V10 makes at wide open throttle, you might think the E60 BMW M5 needs nothing. But you’d be wrong. These beauties just cry out for a set of gorgeous wheels to match that sweet sweet V10’s power – which is why the owner of this E60 M5 brought it to see the Mod Experts at ModBargains.
E60 BMW M5 on Forgestar F14 Silver 20×9 ET18 / 20×10.5 ET25
with 255/30-20 / 285/30-20 Michelin Pilot Super Sport Tires
Matte Black Kidney Grille / Matte Black Fender Grille Blackout Package for E60 M5
Getting the fitment right can be a challenge with BMW E60 Wheels, but our Mod Experts know the ins and outs of these cars, so figuring it out is no sweat for them. Our Mod Experts set this M5 up with a set of Forgestar Wheels. Specifically, a set of Forgestar F14 Wheels in 20in Diameter, finished in silver.
Each set of Forgestars is custom made to order, taking into account things like whether or not you’re lowered, if you have a big brake kit or something, all the things that may throw off the fitment of your average “generic fitment” aftermarket wheel.
The bright silver finish really pops. It’s worth saying that your wheels are only as good as the tires you pair them with, and so we went for the top shelf stuff, fitting a set of Michelin Pilot Super Sport Tires, spec’d out at 255/30-20 up front and 285/30-20 at the rear to cover the beefy 20×9 and 20×10.5 wheels.
With a 10.5 wide rear wheel and 285-series rear tires, this M5 rocks one beefy fitment.
The silver finish looks especially sharp against the deep blue finish of the M5.
Bringing the details together is a Grille Blackout Package for E60 M5, which fits a set of Matte Black Kidney Grilles and Fender Grilles to replace the gaudy chrome-trimmed factory bits in favor of something more tasteful.
Everything about this car works brilliantly and creates a cohesive look that’ll make people stop and stare when it rolls by – if the song of the V10 didn’t already get their attention. We hope you enjoyed the photos, thanks for joining us.
