any issues with 17x8 et20 all around?

Im looking for a set of wheels and have come across a great deal on oem
17x8 et20 wheels. I really wanna stay with the 17s due to road conditions in NYC.

Will there be any issues with this set up, especially in the front?
Would it look awkward cosmetically?
Does anyone have something like that currently on and would be so generous to post pics of the fitment?

I have an 06 330i and wheels im looking to get are the oem style 71.

17x8.0 +20 is quite aggressive. It is 9mm further out then the general 8.5 +35 most people on here run. What tire sizes do you plan on using?

17x8 with a 225 tire is fine. but small out back and might look off a little.
