19's or 20's?

About ready to pull the trigger on a set of Forgestar f14's but was wondering if anyone knows if it would rub or if I'd have any issues going with a 20inch? Are there any fender or wheel well modifications needed? Thanks

No issues going with the 20's, no fender rolling or modifications needed if you get the correct sizing.

20" only come in 10.5" as I understand it. The 19" you can go 11"

20s have no sizing issues that you will run into. Like others have stated a 19" will be the better option for you.

Why no 22s? Contact Mr. Sparkle for some options in 21-22" wheels for your M3.

Just finalized the order. Went with 20x9.5 in the front and 20x11 in the rear. Figured I still have the stock ZCP wheels so might as well just step it up and go with 20's. Semi-gloss black in Super Deep Concave. I'm being told 2 weeks. Stay tuned for pics!

Corrected. 20's are downgrade in every way on an M3. The biggest problems are the tire sidewall height and tire sizing limitations. The M3 tire diameter requirements aren't tall enough for 20's. The 991 porsche and Nissan gtr both run 20's OEM but their tire diameter is 1"+ larger than the M3. In other words they can support proper tire sizing.

I ordered two sets (one when they first opened their doors and another set when SDC came out). Both took for fucking ever. Mod bargains, was more than accommodating with updates and customer service, though

Shit maybe I should call them and change back to 19's.... I just figured since I already have 19" ZCP wheels, I can always switch back for when I want to track or drive aggressively.
