1) 20s will destroy the ride quality
2) it will look idiotic/chav/shit
3) tyres will be more expensive
4) it will devalue the car when it somes to sell because people will think "what kind of **** has owned this car
5) They'll be much easier to curb/damage
6) They're probably more expensive
7) what's the point?

You should have just left it at numero uno,that's the most pertinent point.

Unless its an Audi.......................?!?!?

On one of the other forums a guys bought a v8 Audi was an A8 i believe which had a LPG conversion. So he decided he wanted something different so stuck on 22" audi reps with 1mm profile tyres or something stupid.

Anyway when asked how the ride was he said its actually very civilised with the Air suspension or whatever it has.

P.s He also lowered it too

For your eyes Senior Coupe:

to be fair getting 20's on a car i don't think would be any more uncomfortable than OEM 19" MV4's on Run Flats!

i think the 19" rrun flats against 20" standard tyres ride comfort would be about the same!

as long as you get the offsets, stance etc correct then i reckon it will look fine! you just have to ensure you go for the right wheel to compliment your car

I am running 20's on my e93 with Eibach Sportline suspension and the ride quality is surprising comfortable compared to when running the M-sport suspension with 19" MV4 with runflats.

Most suggest wearing 285/25/R20 tyres (you can try 275/30/R20) for the rear and 235 or 245/30/R20 tyres for the front.

To be fair in concave all the really nice wheels around 3k plus, especially because the deeper the concave the more likely they will be forged.

It will be really difficult to get something but if it must be 20's and under 1k for wheels alone then...

LM reps. ( a la cage)
CSL reps (NJ is running these)
MK motorsport (huge lip)

I mean are there any others you are considering?

What do tyres cost?

Can't imagine many budget brands in such a low profile and rare size.

I only see Dunlops at 270 each without fitting.

The Autovogue cars come with 20s although that doesn't help against the chav point.

I think they could/would look good.

Budget tyres are between 65-80 each; mid-range (Falkens, Hankook) 150-200 each and high end (Michelin, Conti's) 250-400 each.

Price based on quoted prices on camskill website.
