Wheel upgrade advice.

I have decided to beef up my E92 'M' Sports wheel arches.

Being new I'm not sure on the wheel size, but they are MV4's with 225/35/19 and 255/30/19 tyres.

Do I

1. Keep 19's and put spacers on and lower suspension or

2. Put some 20's on?

Any advice or combo advice welcome.

What are you trying to achieve? that is the question.

Even if you put 20's on, you'll still have that wheel arch gap which you'll probably want to get rid of. People do put on 20s and have a decent ride, but personally I'd advise sticking with 19s (MV4 are very smart looking alloys IMO), change to NON RFT (that way you minimise cracking issues), drop the car to your desired level and throw on some spacers if you're looking for a bit of stance.

That to me says a lot more than just slapping on 20's

I think most will agree on that?!

Thanks for that. Must admit the spacers and ride height where my thoughts.

Really wanting more of a beefy stance and to fill out the arches.

Cheers.

Yeah that will definitely get you a beefier stance than now. I hope you're going for coilovers?
To get a beefy stance you'll want a bit of stretched tyreage lol, that's next on my list to do but coil overs are a great advantage to springs only for obvious reasons.

Pics pls when you get them on
