22" Wheels. Cool or Not Cool?

Saw this car in a parking lot. 22" on a 645. Cool or not cool?

I think thats fukin hot

Im all for sport like I would never put chrome dubs on a 3 but I dont think of the 6 as much of a performer.
It more of a pimp cruiser.
So 22s work
as long as their not tacky

I dunno--- the 645 is a big car, but I think 22s a bit large for it--- 19-21 would be acceptable.

I don`t like them. 19" looks perfect on the 6series.

20's are way more than enough...Won't 22's make the ride really really harsh?

I would assume that every dip or bump can potentially bend his/her rims. But again, he/she can probably afford it with no problem.

COOL

now it's got 9 inches of ground clearance and a huge speedometer error, and slower accelaration, and worse cornering, worse braking

NICE

oh, it's a 6 series not a 3

guess it's OK then

i definitely do not agree that bigger is necessarily better. personally, i feel that any tyre size more than R19 i on e90 is going to affect the ride badly, cause undue wear on suspension and will require rear fenders to be flared out. A sure void of warranty, if your new car runs into suspension difficulties prematurely. Deliberate self harm in my books!
