oem 18", 19" or aftermarket 20" wheels on 2010 M3 coupe??

Hello friends,
I have ordered Lemans blue 2010 M3 coupe with original 18" wheels. I want to blacken the wheels ,plus change the grill to black.Debating whether I should powder coat oem wheels black or get aftermarket black wheels 19" or maybe 20" ?? Which would look better on blue car??Is it easier to get coating done?? I hear ride is best on oem 18".I am also concerned about tire pressure monitoring, handling and quality of aftermarket wheels.Any advice is appreciated.Thanks

go the aftermarket route...less of a hassle, plus you can have another set of wheels and tires set aside for track days

19's look best.

I've had OEM 18s and 19s on my car. 18s feel softer, but I wouldn't say ride quality is "better" than with the 19s.

Stock 18's or After market 19's but no 20's please. Just add a drop and you're golden.
