What are the specs for putting 20" rims on an E92?

I've seen it done in pictures but want know for sure what the specs are.

The 335i coupe is currently on 18" factory sports package rims but I'm looking at 19" or preferrably, 20" to put on.

Considering DPE S-7s if going forged or something from Velocity if going non-forged. Any suggestions so I don't miss out on better looking rims?

If you guys can, please also advise on tire specs and which tires you all think would be good for under $700. I've heard UHPs so far...

If you are doing 20s, I would do a custom 3 piece forged wheel. That way you can get the offsets specified for your car and it will be a direct fit. Here are 20" Enkreuz H8Rs on our E92 335i.

You'll want 245/30/20 front and 285/25/20 rear. That's what seems to be the most common tire setup for 20s.

We have great prices for 20" iForged wheels, they are on special now. Let me know if you want a quote.

As far as tire sizes go I must agree with Boost Gomez, that is the preferred tire size for 20's.
