Whatever you do- make sure you get 20's
You'll be kicking yourself if you go small.

Don't think the offset would work on F30.

20s do look great, what's the ride like though?

I would guess ditching run flats for normal tyres is essential??

Here's mine. And honestly since I ditched the run flats my car feels totally different. It's super smooth and enjoyable to drive.

Just got the 405M 20"s on mine. Makes the car look perfect and gets rid of any wheel gap that is there on the 19"s. Ride is stiffer obviously, but IMO, it perfects the ride.

How would it get rid of wheel gap? The circumference, stock, is the same. So you would have the same wheel gap whether its 12" OR 20". I on the other hand, went up a notch in profile size. And THAT reduced the gap

Compared to the run flats. My 20's ride so much quieter, smoother, all that. I have lowering springs and it rides better than stock.

I have 20's and love them, ditching the run flats and putting on mpss was a night and day difference for the better. My rims are 8.5 front and 10 rear with 245/35 and 275/30 tires, respectively. I honestly didn't find any negatives in the ride going from 18" OEMs.

Edit- factory suspension:
