Anyone running Rolls-Royce Wheels ?

Saw this posted in another group and got me thinking about the different RR style wheels. They're a perfect fit which makes sense since BMW owns Rolls, 5X120 Bolt 72.6 Bore and ET25

Because it makes total sense to put boat anchor of a wheel on a relatively lightweight M3, don't you know.

Should've mentioned, I would only do this for my all-season /winter tire set-up, these tanks would never bend on all the potholes I encounter Winter thru Spring around the Denver area, I always get the DiscountTire road hazard coverage too in case of tire damage. Would still have the 666M's with summer tires the rest of the year

Just get yourself the oem f8x winter wheels which are 18" 640M and call it a day

How much would a set of RR wheels even cost? Haha. Im fairly sure you could get a nice set of forged wheels from any brand that are better looking and alot cheaper!

Anywhere from $2K to $8K for 20", the BlackBadge are only 22" and up

Looks great, from what I've found Bugatti uses a 5X130 Bolt and 71.6 Bore so not a direct fit to the F8X like the Rolls

True. Though fitting wheels like that on an older bimmer is hilarious and cool and I'm sure required customization.

Wondering if your original question about RR wheels would work on a 7 series. Not much of a mod scene there but could be cool I imagine.
