Hi all,

Firstly, great site! I've read some of the threads am impressed with the helpfulness of posters here.

Okay, I own a '03 330ci sprot convertible which is great, but I'm wanting to replace the 18" rims with 20's (i'm not a rapper/baller/gangster honest!) however, I've read/heard that there maybe problems fitting them.

Is this correct? Do 20's fit or would I need to roll the arches? Also, anyone got an Active Autowerke supercharger kit installed? Any info on reliability would be appreciated.

Thanks people! Keep up the good work!

I have a 2004 325ci. I just put some 20 X 8.5 all the way around and I don't have any problems at all. The only thing is that you have to put 225/30/20 tires. BF Goodrich is the only one that makes that tire. People think cause you put 20's on a BMW your a gangster or what ever. I lived in Germany for 12 years (the home of BMW) you will be supprise what germans do with all classes of BMW.
