There is someone else on here with 20x9 fronts and 20x10.5 rears but I dont know his offset. So yes those will work if you have the correct offset and the correct tire size. Search on here for people with 20s and you can find out what offset to get. Nice looking wheels. Over here in the US we have a similar looking wheel by Niche and it looks great on the F30.

A front ET around 30-35 and a rear around 45 is OK with those dimensions.
The stock tires will be VERY stretched on those rims though, so I would suggest that you get wider tires. You have to make a decision and either go with a thinner or a fatter tire.

245/30R20 and 285/25R20
235/35R20 and 275/30R20
etc, etc

The one in their gallery looks like it is running 245/30R20 and 275/30R20 by looking at the pictures.

I changed my mind. Velgen wheels are so big and my tyres so small and Velgen product only big wheels. I do not like stretched tires
I have found the m131 targa by nichel (thanks pkancel), very very nice with similar looking.

20x8.5 and 20x9 (9.5?) are god size for my tyres.
What is the recommened front/rear offset I could run?

I was speaking about tires only.
8.5 ET30-35 and 9.5 ET35-40 should be fine.

20x10 ET40 works too. But if the car isn't lowered it will stick out a bit.
And a 10" rim is to wide for stock tire dimensions so you then have to go with one of the options I mentioned in my first post.

Then use 8.5x20 ET35 front and rear with OEM tires.
They won't be concave though.

Typo with ET15?

ET35 works on all corners. Look at this thread for 8.5x20 ET35
