NEW M6 sittin' on 22" Forgiato's...

Your thoughts and enjoy!
My Opinion... Wrong color scheme, could be more agrressive with the offsets (rear especially) And definitely needs a drop. But otherwise, lovin' 22's on this machine.

Hahahahaaa thats funny but this isn't that M6 Bro... I know exactly what car your speaking of too... It's funny because that M6 your speaking of is the same body color with the same wheel color scheme and not to mention Forgiatos as well.. The only difference between the two is the rim style... It has the Forgiato Martellato which is a 5 spoke face... These wheels are the Forgiato Maglia.

You should've seen when he had it in front of Green House with my boys Red Ferrari California parked behind it... It was insane!!!

100% Bro... I've notice that with the new 6 body with 22's. I'm thinking the sleeker design with the shorter rooftop helps give the appearance and illusion of a drop when 22's are applied. It is deceiving, but trust me, when a drop is applied you will totally notice the difference.

Not for me but it isn't horrible. It would be better if the wheels were 21's and the lip painted black with color matched blue on the rim of the lip. Or chrome lips with black centers.

It looks ridiculous. At this level, a lot of serious designers spent a lot of time maximizing the look and aesthetic of the car. I understand some people's need to personalize their vehicle but really 22" wheels? As soon as you hit one pothole you'll have a nice flattened elipse. I ordered my M6 with the 20" wheels. Looks great and is at about the limit of taste. As someone previously mentioned this is really over the top ghetto. The performance will be compromised unless you have another set for the track. Just my thoughts is all.(meant respectfully of course)

Vas is los?

I personally don't like the look of the Forgett-you-O's, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn last night...

Really, if you like it then that's all that matters. I see many posers here in Cali' and I guess the way to prove it is to show pics of the Engine, and the VIN on the car and on the MSRP sticker.

It's all good, because even 650i's umm ahhh, I mean 640's need lovin' too...

Definitely GhETto. Ride height is good, but the wheels are just too big and too deep. Not to mention the serious degradation in performance.
Might go over well with the gold-medallion, hat-on-backwards and underwear/buttcrack showing crowd, but, personally, I would be embarrassed to be seen in this. This is obviously just my opinion. If you are happy with the looks for your car, then that is what really counts.

Don't you think thats a little over-the-top judgemental?
You might as well just say blacks, hispanics and/or hoodrats.

The first words posted by the OP are "your thoughts....." No matter who you are, there will be people who don't like what you do. I am sure there are people who don't like the way I would mod a particular car. The OP is asking for opinions. They are not going to all be positive.

As far as the ethnic references, there are people of all races and ethnicities that fit the picture I described. Likewise, I know people of all races and ethnicities that do not. It probably has more to do with education, occupation, and age.
