Default 19.5" wheels, do they exist?

My roommate says his sisters twincharged (that's a super AND tubrocharged) BMW has 19.5" wheels on it. Now the BS meter is already pegged, but I was just wondering if such things ever existed. Anyone?

Not that I've ever heard, in fact, only 1 size exists that I know of (for performance cars), and that's the 16.5".

19.5" wheels do exist, but they are for hard-core heavy truck tires. Not sure why anyone would run them on a BMW.

More likely an idiot who can't measure.

I hate it when people post like they know everything. Thanks Luke for setting them straight and clearing this up. I have no doubt many "experts" will still post their "expert" knowledge even after you posted the answer.

I stand sorta corrected. Very cool.

However they are 460mm rims. Which is 18.11 inches. Why the unique size I ask?

And they're Michelins so in the final turn at the end of the back straight they'll come apart on you.

then, you need tires...

I don't think Bridgestone will care to make a 19.5" tires even for $10000/pc just for you.
