So I went with TE37SL in 18s. Got my confidence back of hard cornering and I'm happy with its comfy ride too.
It used to be +1" wheels were cool in E46M3 days but it looks like our trend changed and a lot of folks are in for -1" setup these days as well.
I agree with what he's saying as far as "confidence". I just recently went with 20's and I don't feel as comfy cornering as I did before, but I still wouldn't say I regret going for 20's. Look is mean and the performance/ride isn't so much different that I question my decision.
