The wheels look fine but dubs on these cars ruin your tire options

You do you but that's why I said why

Also, the M4 Competition wheels exist, are probably lighter, and look rad as hell (and fit the same as those you just linked, for probably a bit less money for a set of takeoffs, if you must have dubs)

Totally hear you,, I bought the cabrio as speed and track performance wasnít my main focus , sound and looks with everyday street performance was my goal.. for some reason I agree some 20 look terrible on the m3 , way to big looking etc but I find the higher end forged 2 or 3 piece look better, ride quality I am a bit worried about as even the 19 spill my wifeís coffee all the time.. for 3K Canadian though for 2 piece Brixtonís seems like to good to pass up. The set would cost me without tires 6k or more new. And yes the the new m4 comp wheels are sweet. Wha t has me on this 20ís kick is literally the Ferrari and Lamborghini cars with sick 20ís when lowered given that look. Have to remember the m3 ainít a Ferrari... this was my inspiration for larger rims....458 with avd1

HRE P40 20" on m3 it dwarfs the 380mm brakes, looks good...looks like it needs caster adjustment

Those look great...

I also think when the wheels are step lip 20ís work as step lip rims look visually smaller I think.

Keep in mind that recent Porsche's and Ferrari's are using 20's but they are designed around that size. As a result they have larger diameter tires with sidewall heights equivalent to 19's on an e92 M3. In other words the overall diameter of the tire is 1"+ larger than the E92 M3. Therefore a 20" on an e92 is equivalent to a 21" or sometimes a 22" on those platforms.
