Talking FINALLY! Got rims on my e90!!!! 20" Vossen VVS-CV2s



20" Vossen VVS-CV2 (20x9 front, 20x10.5 rear on stock sport suspension). Should I lower it a little? Maybe some 5mm spacers in the rear?

Great looking wheels.
And of course you should lower it.

Looks great, a drop is much needed for 20's imo.

I love them rims, the concavity in the rear is really nice.

And yes a drop would be nice.

Yea, the gap between the ground and the bottom of the body looks pretty big at some angles. I'm thinking 1.2" in the front and .8" in the back

285? Wow... those Vossen must be a bit wider at 10.5 than other wheels or maybe it's the tires cause I'm running 10.5 ADVs and 275 tires and the wheels border doesnt stick out that much.

Still, they look nice and I'm really diggin the quad exhaust!

So today I went to dinner with some friends and I drove. While getting gas I had 3 people sitting in my car and from the outside the rear height looked perfect and the front looked pretty good too. I feel like if I drop driving will become a chore. Currently the only rubbing I get is when I turn the front wheels all the way...anybody with a drop (on 20s) care to share experiences?

I love my set, but you need a drop and 5mm spacer in the back, after that pure sexiness...
