Check out pics of what 20s look like on an e92, you'll likely you find the 19" look better.

To me, 20" wheels on an e9x just wasn't meant to be.

I like 19"' wheels on lowered cars, just a personal preference though, mine:

Here's my ride on 20's - i just installed KW V2 coilovers and the ride feels great. Obviously a personal preference, but i like 'em and see nothing wrong with 20's vs. 19's.

I LOVE THIS DEBATE!!!!! 19" vs 20" I love your current MRR wheels.... on my current 20s I'm running 245/30 and 275/30 and I'm on Ksport coils with full side wall of the tire showing in the front and back.

Most people would say 19s why:
1) bc everyone else have 19s alot of people want to be like others, no one wants to be different and be flamed
2) 19's are better performance sizes
3) 19" tires are cheaper then 20" tires (myth...it depends on brand)
4) some people just like 19s over 20
5) looks better

People that get 20's just like 20's. Everyone that think 20's look ghetto...maybe you are just looking at the wrong cars. B/c last time I check my car looks FAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRR from ghetto. I've had 18's, 19s, and 20s on my car. 18 looked way to small, 19 looked small, 20 looked just right IMO. Here is my car with my Vossens and with my Volks (soon to be for sell) and as mentioned I don't think either of the 20" wheels are ghetto.

Sorry for the last 2 pics iphone

I actually have a similar question... I just got aftermarket 17's. I feel I either need to go bigger or lower the car a little bit. Thoughts?

Also, what are the largest size spacers I should go with?
