Only damage is to your actual ride. It becomes very harsh. I'm lowered on KWv3 and you can tell. Rides like it's on rails, both good and bad.

As long as you don't get some huge 40lb chrome 20's, wont' make a difference.

Also, Ferg, I've found that wheel size makes only a minimal difference in ride comfort. The factors that really influence the comfort of your ride are:
-Tire compound (Are you riding on junky cheapos or on S03 soft compound?)
-Tire inflation (this is a big one that is overlooked)
-Suspension setup (obvious, right? This is the biggest single influence)

I've ridden in cars with 18's and stock suspension that were twice as bumpy as cars with 19's and race-spec coilovers. Tires make a HUGE difference.

I'm ridin' comfy on my 20's, no problemo.

Not sure what is wrong with my setup. I have the coilovers set on a soft setup although I am having BMW take a look at it next week. Keep hearing a squeaking noise over some bumps and a clunk when turning right. Might be that. Then again, maybe it is the tires. We'll find out next set. Thanks for the insight though. Will keep you updated.
