    Anyone running OEM rear wheels on the front?

    This was a popular mod for the M5s...running 9.5" widths on all 4 corners. It reduced the understeer typically built into street cars. And allowed for rotating the tires yielding longer life. Just wondering if that was an option with the Vs.

    If you install wider wheels in the front, your turning radius will be larger. How much??? Will you actually notice??? But if you actually measure it....

    I have two sets of OEM wheels one set with PS2's and another with Pirelli's, I'll try it and let you know. Great idea!

    I was going to try a test fitment on Saturday but got sidetracked. I'd love to get the coupe's rear wheels on the sedan...

    Dont do it, you will hit on the back of the rim and rub on the Arm at the top. It will dig a large gouge out for you.

    On the M5s you had to run a 3mm spacer to keep from rubbing on the struts. Maybe a similar solution would work here.
