20's are too big IMO. 19's are the biggest I'd go without it looking ghetto.

With the style of the rim IMO the 20" looked ideal.....go-to YouTube and search vw vossen....should find a white vw with orange painted inner side of the rims watch the video. ...rims cv3's by vossen

The VW scene can get away with it. But if you still want the maneuverability and handling of an M, I wouldn't go 20. A wheel that big on a 3 series doesn't look good to me. But it's your car, so do as you please.

Pros, you will impress people of certain races.
Cons, they will be heavy, look bad, reduce gas mileage, be more prone to breaking, expensive tires, won't have spare, rough ride, will slow you down.

20's are overkill on a three series. This isn't a chevy.

Very bad idea. Not to say it wouldn't fit but it just doesn't look right. Even if it's an m3 20s will never look good. Go find me pics of an m3 with 20s that look good.

20s will make the vehicle unstable in a few ways.

19s max, keep it classy

I jut got my 20`s BBS LM on ! Love them !!! Personally I think 20s looks better that 19, I think 19 looks small if u don't drop it like f.ck with coils..

I respond to the post from Peytonracer4: (some of the things you wrote I don't understand so I answer on those I can translate myself :P)

1.Heavy: hmm idk cant be much, if u fill the gas tank up to full or go with half tank makes more difference ? Should every one go with 1/3 of a tank all time then ?

2.Look Bad: I think it looks better, so that's up to each person to judge... I pick rims that ( I ) think looks good.

3.Reduce Gas: hmm if u own a M3 I don't think u will have a problem with that LITTLE more Gas it takes...

4.Expensive tyres: Yes more expensive than 19" for sure but as I said, if u own a M3 and u cant buy tyres... don't own a M3

5.Rough ride: I can agree to that, but its not that much difference than my 19"s, I think if u want smooth ride go 18.

Will slow you down: Maby a little but depends on what u have the car for. I don't compete or go track.. I ride normal and press the Gas time to time, if I want to go track or race in heavy Corners I can always put on my 19".

that's what I think :) Sorry for my English, Im from Sweden ! BTW I got 20x8,5 front and 20x10" Back, Rubbs a little in the back, but easy fix with rolling fenders, thatīs a problem you got with some 19" to if you want aggressive look.

Do you need 2 threads to be told it's dumb? It's the ultimate driving machine, not the ultimate poser mobile.

I got 20" BBS LM and I love them, I think its up to each person to jugde. I bought them cuzz ( I ) think they looks better and Im not a track racer so I don't need it to be 100% best handling.
