I have OEM M6 rims on my M3 -- just downsized the rubber to M3 size to fit

20" MORR VS8.2. Can't wait to switch back to the summer setup! Probably in a couple weeks here on the west coast.

I use to ride the Apex on my pervious M3. No I am trying to decide on either Black BBS CH-R or Volk Te37SL....

Going on a E90

I was thinking of going 20" if I go concave, just worried about sacrificing performance.

20' - you will def. feel every bump. It looks good though and fills out the wheel well. A few times when I hit the potholes so hard, I thought I have cracked my wheel and even the front windshield.

Anyway, I am sure other bloggers may tell you differently. To each of their own.

More rim, less rubber especially on the sidewalls will make the ride not too bottom friendly.

I'd say 20" looks great on a VIP car like a 5, 6, or 7 series with the plush suspension but on something like an M3 19" is as big as I'd go. 18" would be even better.

I'll be riding on my bronze TE's once this friggin snow melts.

19" matte black Volk VRG2 here. for a street setup I personally favor 19s over 20s on the M3.

I got a quote from Tires23 for those 360Forged rims, and its over six grand! Not sure if I like them THAT much, would probably just go for HRE's with that price.

HRE's, you are probably looking at $7K without tires.

What about Advan RZ DF, around $5-6K without tires.

Still wouldn't be that much. I think you need to find a new vendor.
As for HREs, I guess it really depends which ones.

Havok, don't go 20", go 19". I think a nice set of LM-Rs would suit you.
