Any pictures of a E90 M3 with E60 M5 wheels?

I wanna see how the E90 M3 looks like with the E60 M5 wheels.
I'm really curious to see a mini-E60-M5 modded E90 M3 at its best.
This is what I'd do if I ended up getting that model instead of the E92.
Thank you!!!!

Awhile back there was a pic of a red e92 on e60 M5 wheels I believe... maybe a year or so ago? Hopefully someone has this pic?

I have done some research on this-

i thought this exact same thing! I think the e60 m5 wheels look great but!!!!!!!! yes, there is a but...

e60 M5 wheels weight 4-5lbs more per wheel- The m3s 19" wheels weigh around 25.x lbs, the e60 m5 wheels weigh 29.x lbs

That is my major downside, I don't feel like adding almost 18-20lbs of unsprung weight.

As far as offsets, the front m5 wheel is a 12 offset which will really fit perfect- The rear wheels have a +28 offset, 5mm more offset than our wheels so the rears will look more 'tucked in' than a factory m3 wheel fitment. You would need to run a 5mm spacer to fix that- or..... if you plan on running the usual 12-15mm spacer in the back, you are will need to run an 18 or 20mm spacer. Most 20mm spacers add 1.4 addition lbs per corner.

Did you ever see the wheels on the 550I? They're actually really nice too. Obviously not M wheels though.

I can see you did your research about them. Either way, I might buy a set of these for my baby. They look way better them the stockers i have on now. I really don't like using spacers to much but I guess thats a choise.

Did you ever buy a set for yours or did you go another route?

We only put it on the car so we can roll it out the shop. The front looked like it will definitely rub/rip the fenders on the M3.

Not a fan of M5 wheels on the M3.... plus the added weight is a definite no.
