Thats not true I've seen 3 in my town with 20", I'm really just curious as whether the 8.5 width is too much or if I need to go with a 7.5 width. Even the wheel shops I've looked at say a 20 will fit, but I think that might be too wide. I'll post pix when I get em on.

20s will fit, with a fender roll, and u will have virtually no tire and cannot lower ur car....bad idea...19's are ok for show...18s are better for show and driving, 17's are the best for performance...

I remember when 16" was the biggest rim that was made, period. -sigh- This trend kills me.

I'm only 22 (23 in 7 days w00t), but I love old cars.. I had a hell of a time putting on my 17"'s on my e30, and when I get another e30 Ill never go bigger then 16, and that'd only be to clear a IE BBK or something.

Big rims + real life driving = poor fuel economy, poor performance, and 100% certainty that you will bend your rims within a year.

I plan on 16's on my e30 as well, great drive, and great performance and way less chance of denting and bending

All great things are simple, and many can be expressed in single words: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.
