Question/Opinion

Does Advan make the RS wheels in 20"??

And which color would flow nicer with a black sapphire? the dark gunmetal or the hyper silver?

Mike, I don't think Advan RS's come in 20's. I've seen them in gunmetal on a sapphire metallic e90 330i with M3 conversion in silver. Go with the gunmetal. It will look much nicer. They are great performance wheels because they are 1 piece forged wheels, are very strong, and don't weigh much. They will greatly reduce unsprung weight and be a big difference performance wise from your other wheels. Your handling and braking would greatly improve from 20" DPE's. I would only go with the Advan RS if you like the JDM style on a german car though. IMO Advan's only look good with a very aggressive offset with a stretched tire...

Here's a link to the sapphire e90 from the car show i went to. It's magmd's car with the silver Advan RS's: Just scroll down:

Here's gunmetal Advan RS's on a black e92:

I would only go with Advan if you are going for performance. If you want to do 20" wheels it doesn't matter how heavy they are. Since I'm sure you won't be crazy enough to track your car with 20's.
