    Hello, I am new on this board and coming from the BMW M side :smile:I finally decided to buy a model S after having test driven 2 P85 over the last 1.5 years when visiting the US.
    After finally the P85D was introduced, I pulled the trigger and ordered once a month ago.
    Expecting delivery in Germany in March now.
    Since I also want to track the car, like all my cars before, I am already thinking about a nice 20" wheel set.
    My car has all options except rear sets and I ordered the cheapest 19" wheels for winter tires only.
    I am planning to put custom 20" BBS wheels on.
    Presently I am thinking about 9x20 front and 10x20 rear.
    It will be either BBS FI or RI- D design.
    Tires I am planning are 255/30 front and 285/30 rear.
    Any recommendations from you guys about possible offsets?
    Tending to 32 front and 35 rear...
    Since BBS needs a about 3 month for the project it's time for me to get started.
    Appreciate your recommendations☺

    Now that is a chunk of change for rims. I'm doing 9s all the way around (20"). Your offsets sound about right.

    tyre sizes in 20":
    front - 245/40 or 255/40 w/ 8.5Jx20 ET32 is OK
    rear - 265/40 or 285/35 w/ 10Jx20 ET35 is OK

    Does somebody have the exact weights of the OEM 21" wheels, also for the 265 option in the rear?
