I dont think that would be very tasteful. I'm sure there would be rubbing issues with 20's. I wouldnt recommend it.

dont take this personally, but I think you would have more ground clearance than a bus if you put 20s on there

19" Alpinas would own.... I'm not a big fan of 20's , besides when the tires wear out it will run you way over $1000 to replace the tires.

Yeah, I thought that!!!

Its definately not worth it!!

I am just hesitant to put racing kind fo rims because it might look to poserish cuz my car is not all too fast compared to most cars with them!! Thats why I have always gone Chrome!!

But any suggestions are welcome, I am just getting an idea for the future(summer)

I believe teh max u can go on e34's r 19's

20's will nto fit unless u want to change all ur pedometer settings and such, and liek sum1 else said, good luck, u might require a step lader.

in my opinion, 18's look the best and max sum1 should go on e34's. 19's seem ridiculous but im more sport than style (if thats ur style)

you can go online to www.tirerack.com and choose your model car, they will show you what rims they have that are available for your car. They will even show you what your car would look like with the rims. If 20" show up as available then you can put them on your car and have no issues of rubbing at the same time you can maintain your current ride hight. Remember that 20" rims will make the car ride a lot rougher... a lot. If you think there is a difference between stock and your 18" wait till you get to 20". another web site to try is www.discounttiredirect.com... also great places to order your tires for a fraction of the cost then you would find at the local tire store.

I couldn't own a car like that, there are too many speed bumps and road irregularities where I live. So easy to crack rims and damage suspension components. I personally think those rims are 20's though.

If you show your BMW love, she will love you in return.

I think those might be 18's with a 2 1/2 inch lowered suspension!! They are no where near 20's, but maybe 19's but I could almost promise they were 18's
