I would love to see a series of photos of an E90 with 17, 18, 19, and 20 inch wheels side by side.

Not the same car, but the same wheel style

19"s look the best on E90s IMHO


18"s



19"s

Good points..but the good point for RFTs is you can at least drive 50kms....if its freezing cold outside then you gotta wait to be towed..or like the other poster said, keep the spare in your trunk...

Garage List
E92 N54  [3.75]
Here are a bunch of 17-19" on the same car....IMHO - for looks the design of the wheel makes a big difference: ie, there are some 18" that look big; vice-versa there are some 19" that look small....wheels that have the spokes extend right to the lip look bigger vs wheels with dish styled lips

comfort = more rubber (non RFT) is always more comfy...ie a 17" wheel has a bigger tire vs a 19" wheel

17-17-18-18-18-19-18-18-18-19 in order of the pics
