I run 245/30 285/25 on 20x8,5 and 20x10 works perfekt, just a little rubb but that's cuzz I wanted aggressive look so myself to blame, need to roll fenders As I said before, I think 20" LOOKS better maby not as good as 18 or 19 on Track but not every one goes track and drive like H*LL with their M3s, and if I wanna do it I put my 19īs on :p Simple is that
