Any F12/13 M6 owners order the 19" wheels

Like the title says, I'm curious if any F12 or F13 M6 Owners went with the 19" wheels instead of the 20's?

Not for me. The 20's look much more sexy and show off more of those huge brakes.

I went with the 19" and they look great. Even better, knock on wood, no road rash yet on my rims. Living in an urban environment, that was an important consideration.

This may be a tough request, but do you think you'd ever be able to swap one of your rear wheels to the front to see if the 19x10.5" rear wheel clears the front brakes?

It is my daily driver, so I do not muck around with the car that way. Just for comparison, my E46 M3 with 18" wheels had bad road rash. But if you want the carbon ceramic brakes then you must get the 20's.

I was faced with the same decision but glad I went with the 20's... Yeah the roads are tough to deal with in NYC but learn quickly and avoid the ones you can. I prefer the look with the 20's to the 19's...

I got the 19 inch wheels for the slightly smoother ride and because of the crappy roads around here. I have to agree they are not as pretty but no regrets.

Any of you guys looking to sell your sets? I cannot find any used sets and I need new wheels to fit over my M5/M6 brake setup. Unfortunately I don't think my 19s are gonna make it.

And barclay, you're local for me, but I'm thinking you're not interested, right?
