405s apparently weigh 24 lbs and are forged. So it is a good wheel for a 20 incher. However, for my money, I would spend it on a set of HRE or Morr wheels which are less busy looking and are also forged and quite light. I think the HREs are only about 22 lbs.

OEM wheel weights are discussed on this thread:

That's pretty light!
They can be found for cost around $2500 with tires....I think it's a good price actually.

No love. 20" wheels that narrow are just odd looking.

These wheels are controversial. Many guys have a negative view.

not a fan myself, but they would probably look better if they were all silver or maybe gunmetal.

I love them. These are my second favorite BMW wheels after the M6 GC. I seriously considered getting these for my car, but just can't justify that much money for rims after I completely decked out everything else. That would have pushed me damn close to $70,000 :-S

I'm not crazy about them, but they came with the car...so what ya gonna do? I'm hoping once I throw some springs or some kw's on they will look a lot less wagon wheel-ish. Won't put them back on the car until spring...if I don't go out and get a set of Stance or Morr wheels before then

Where'd you find them for $2500 with tires? That's the price i've seen for wheels only. Pls share link.

As it's been said already, I don't think they're worth the price. It's a good-looking wheel and clearly says "M Sport/Perf" but can't justify the cost.

No update on where they're being sold around that $2500 mark?

MUCH love. Always thought they were a sexy wheel. And, for a 20''er, not that heavy. The 19'' 403M is close to 5 lbs heaver each, for example.
