I would only go with 20's if they were chrome and had spinners - that would be the superior performance!

360 Forged actually makes very light 3-piece wheels compared to those companies. They are also very high quality wheels, haven't read any bad press about them.

If your M3 is not going to see the track on a consistant basis 360 Forged wheels are just fine. Very nice wheels actually.
+1 on 360 Forged I have a 20inch 3 piece and that bastard is light compaired to my regular 1 piece 20inch chrome wheels

Careful what you wish for, I actually have a extra set of 20inch Chrome wheels and a set of spinners all custom made for BMW's and they will fit on the new M3 don't make me prove it. I can put the bling bling in the M3 and make it gain some weight. I am not called Shady1 for nothing

Dub Pimpstars I think you watch to many
Rap video's or something and by the way I hate Dubs I think you can get away with 21's but 22's thats's just plain crazy. I will leave the Dubs to the Rap stars

Jason
+1, as well the GT-R is a BIG car. Wide, long, and heavy. These and the factors above all come into play. Just like 19s are fine for the E92 M3 they would not be great for an E36 M3, 20s are more about show than go for the E92 M3.

Don't do the 20s Jason! How is the car? Time for a mini SD meet!

The M3 was primarily developed around the 18". Check out almost all of the test shots from the ring.
