I have 19s on my 550i now with lo-profile Conti's and even on a 5-series they're too big for these roads.

Never understood the 20s business... at least when it comes to performance, that is
You're right. You definitely cannot afford to lose 2 tenths when you drive to the grocery store due to having 20's

Get your 18's or 19's for the track, who cares what you have for the street.

OP...car looks great. I love brushed/silver wheels with IB. Nice contrast.

Looks very clean.

The Breyton 1 piece is one of the best looking single piece wheels

Visually they look HUGE on teh car....your car is clean, the wheel is clean but there is no way that you feel faster with those wheels. The 20's, nevermind that they are Breytons, are very heavy which with the rotational mass you are losing power no matter what you think.

I am sure you didn't get them for total performance so they look pretty awesome!
