classic bmw rims on e90

Whats your opinion on these? i have an alpine white '06 330xi 4-door. a 2" step down from 17s.

well... im not a regular on here, but i've been lurking and spying on the rides here on the pics sub-forum. I dig the 20" (lol), the matte black rims, the concave rims.. and all. Basically I would like to keep it lo-key on the roads im driving to keep attention a little more relaxed on the eyeballs. "Especially" with the police.

polish these up and mount new tread?

Those are going to look really, really small on a newer style BMW. They are also pretty narrow (probably 7" or 7.5") so you'd lose a lot of contact patch.
