New To The M3 World Can 20" Wheels Be Run ?

So I have decided to put some new shoes on my 08 E90 M3 however the wheel I am looking to buy only comes in 20" just wondering if anyone can tell me about any issues i may have running this size wheel. Not looking to roll my quarters and dont need things rubbing. I am thinking it can be done as long as I dont run a real aggressive tire. just wanted to hear what others may have to say

Yes, possible and many people here have done it. I personally do not want to go any bigger than 19s.

Many people on the forum are running 20s. It really depends more on the offsets and width of the wheels that you are looking at. If you can get us those numbers then we can help you further. Even help with tire choices.

I bought my M3 with 20's on it so I never drove on 19's. I can't be any happier with the way the car rides and handles.

+1, 20 takes away from the M3 perfect design in my opinion

You need to find out the offsets on these wheels. Post a pic of what they look like, someone might actually have them installed.

thank you sir ! I plan to get the black ones and they will be fitted on a blue M3 so should look nice, plus I should be the only one in the states that even has them, as they are not offered here in the states having them brought over from a distributor from Europe
