When I put my matte black SF-71, I kinda felt that it seems smaller (looks more 18s. I think black color makes it look smaller) so i had somewhat confidence putting black CH-R 20s on my ride. And.. I'm very happy. It looks very 19s. Doesn't look too big at all. I'm sure I lost some ride quality but I didn't drive it yet so I can't tell anything yet.

Anyway, here are pictures of CH-R 20s on AW E90M3 with Dinan stage I suspension.
ride is looking sweet buddy. Well done.

op: for a wheel like the chr which is already heavy even in 19s just get 20s. Jmo.

I took pictures right after I put them on so actually it's not that high as shown in the pictures after test driving.

Def. I can feel the weight of these 20s compare to my OEM 19s.
Not while driving (I'm not that hardcore guy who can feel aftermarket intake power increase etc. of subtle things) but while installing, I can feel the weight differences when I hold them up.

Good to see my CHR's found a good home! I was running them on the Dinan suspension as well. Ride height was pretty good once the the suspension settled in after mounting.

Congrats! They look great. Look forward to seeing the car at Bimmerfest.

I JUST got some 20" CH-R's. And I LOVE THEM!! Sickest wheel available, IMO. And pictures don't do these things ANY justice. I can't tell a difference in daily driving to my 19" OEMs or the 20" Spec5 360's I just took off. Held side by side, you can tell a bit of a difference, but not something you'll notice under regular driving. Anchors? Far from. That's ridiculous.

Can't say the Shamu look is my cup of tea, but those CH-R's do go with the look you're going for. Congrats on the new wheels I agree with you, but of course I have a set myself
