Default 19" wheels on non-sport E60

Anyone have any photos of an E60 with non-sport suspension and 19" wheels? I wont be changing the overall diameter of the tire but just curious how perceived wheel gap looks with a larger wheel.

Have pics on my laptop at home of a bone stock non-sport E60 with OEM 166 wheels from an M5 on it. I'll post up when I get home. It looks pretty ridiculous if you ask me.

I may have posted my car up with them.. not sure, check out my posts. If not send me a private message with a phone number or email and I'm sure I have one on my phone before I lowered my car. All my car friends... made jokes about the monster truck look. It wasn't that bad in my opinion... but of course now that it's lowered it looks MUCH better. I liked someone else's idea that got 19" tires that were taller than stock, although throwing off the speedo a bit, decreases the wheel gap look and is more forgiving on the potholes.

I generally inflate my tires to ~35psi, regardless of size or car.

The reason i am asking is that my rear tire (conti dws) have worn in the middle and as per tire shop i over inflated thats why it worn so bad(36psi)
Now i am waiting for the new conti dws 06 and i dont want to repet the mistake
I have on the tires ~ 20k( 3 years)
Thx u

36psi is not going to cause abnormal tire wear. Your shop is cuckoo.

As promised, here's one. Not my car, just a picture I found on the internet somewhere. Too big for a non-lowered car IMO.

Looks proportionate to size of car and arches. msports are only 15mm lower so hardly anything. could ramp up tyres profile if that bothered
