Getting New Wheels

I'm thinking of getting some new wheels for the M, and came across these Breytons GTSR-M. They are about 1100-1700 for a set, depending if I'm getting 19s or 20s.

Any members here tried these wheels before?

I'm leaning towards 19s as I think 20s might look too big. However, I was looking at tirerack, the GTSR-M only come in 20s(black or silver). If I were to go with 19s, then I can only get the GTSR, which is good because they have the matte grey that I wanted, and also in 19s. The only down side to it is the setting being not as aggressive and heavier.

I've only looked at Tirerack, but is there a distributor that sells the GTSR-M in 19s and in matte grey by any chance?

Help is appreciated

Don't know those wheels, but get nineteens and give the car a modest drop for the best compromise for looks, ride and performance.

The 19s are heavier than the 20s?

That's wierd and actually worrisome. How much difference is there? I'd be leery of a 20" that had less metal in it than a 19" of the same design.
