Nice thread. Although personally I could care less about that german vs japanese thing. If they look great and aren't built like crap that's all that matters to me.

My Ride: 2007 Z4M Coupe
I got a new set of wheels and tires put on my M Coupe this weekend and wanted to share some pics. Here are the specs:

Enkei Racing RPF1 Wheels w/ Nitto Invo Tires
Front: 19x8.5 +35 (19.8 lbs) w/ 245/35/19's
Rear: 19x10 +25 (20.7 lbs) w/ 275/30/19's

I wanted a lightweight setup with a more aggressive look and I think these definitely achieved those goals for me. As for the Nitto Invo tires, I've only driven about 60 miles on them so far, but I'm very impressed. They are lightweight, quiet, and grip impressively so far compared to the Michelin PS2s and the Bridgestone RE050a Pole Positions I used previously.

Here are the pics:

Yup. Sold the LM's. I decided to save some cash this time around and go with something a bit more unique for BMW's..especially Z4M's.
