19s

The E92 comes with stock 19s in Europe (with some packages) so relax! In a year or 2 19s will be stock on E92 in USA.

Your car is going to look sweet!

The gap wont be too much more at all because the wheel/tire package should still be around the same height.The ride will also be comparable because you wont be on runflats.You are thinking too much and buggin because of it.Its going to look awesome.You will have a gap but I think it will still look fine.

I think 18" would be better, hence I'm going with them myself. I had them in the 06 Z06 and currently on the AMG, and they are rough. My car is a daily driver and I want some cush on my tush.

Drop the car, you gotta drop it to look right.

i bought 18" M6 reps for the reason that your regretting getting 19's. But right now i kinda regret not getting 19's and trying them out lol. so since we're both regretting our wheels do you wanna just swap? we have the same wheels brand new and we're like 1 hour away from each other.

Has anyone seen the M6 Rims on 20"s? I'm thinking about getting them for my E93, but haven't seen any yet so I'm hesitant. I've only seen pics of the 19"s which look pretty sweet.

going from 16's to 19's is really an agressive setup...I usually go with plus 2 and no more..It will compromise the speedometer and not show true readings..The ride will be definately much harder and when u hit bumps you will feel it hard....As far as the looks go, the car will look more awesome, but thats the price you pay for looks rather than ride quality...I would have went only plus 2....My setup came with 17's so i upgraded to 19's...I would never go plus 3 especially living in New York...With my 19's hitting bumps, the car feels like its going to break sometimes....

I'd really like to try 20s and see how they felt over my 19s.
