Test fitting 20 inch rims

Hi,

Anyone in the north jersey area with 20 inch rims that would let me test fit them on my E90?
Im thinking about buying 20 inch rims but im afraid it will rub and I dont want to roll the fenders.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks

I have 20's for my M3, but they are just for the summer. It won't rub as long as the offset and widths are correct.

I think 20" looks to big for a e90/e92 . why not 19s ??

I honestly think that 19's look best on non-M's and 20's look beat on M's. The M3's handle bigger rims better visually for some reason.

Although Craig those P40s's look pretty good. What car are you getting next?

I had a set of 20x9 front and 20x10 rear with 35 offset front and back on my coupe. if you get something with those numbers u will need to roll your fenders, trim the splash guard on the rear and the front I removed my oil cooler plastic cover.

20's look to big on e90/2 ive seen them in person and for some reason they look really out of place. I would stick with 19s they look the best (visually) and you dont have to worry about every bump or crack on the road.

I'm also lookin for a set of summer wheels and considering 20's over 19s. What should the wheel/tire sizes be to have a clean flush look w/o rubbing
