Lowering E46 with 20" wheels?

1. Put flame suit on
2. A few have pulled it off well
3. You pretty much have to search.
4. It's all down to offset and width
5. Most that run 20s don't do it right and it looks silly
6. It's not worth it. With the ride and handling trade off.
7. You're better off with 19s or even 18s
8. Put 2nd flame suit on
9. Unless your getting quality lightweight 20s mileage will drop too.
10. Search
