20' on stock height?

So I'm looking to get new rims on my 435i and I was looking into 20' vorsteiner Vff 103. But since I'm most likely not going to be lowering the car I'm scared 20s will look a little odd. Would it look better if I get 19s if I'm not lowering the car?

I just put the 103 in 20 on my 435xi, it dosent fill in the entire wheel well but it looks way more aggressive and proper.

I personally think, at stock height, a 20" doesn't feel quite right. I prefer the 19" in that setup. Just an opinion though.

I do agree with Titan 3. 19's would be enough and safer. Verde V27 saga or Lorenzo wheels will surely look good with your ride.

My 335xi stock height with 20" stock wheels were painful to look at. The gap was ridiculous.

Had to lower it and add spacers to make it look better. . Pics of both stock height and lowered height can be found in my photo album.

Sorry if I missed it earlier in this thread, but what is your "after". Lowered on what? Looks really good! Also how's your ground clearance now with the mperf. front lip??

I went with H&R sport springs for a minor drop. I believe it was about 1.3" and 0.7" on the back, with an expectation for slightly more settling after a few more miles. I've also got 10mm/15mm spacers front/back.

Ground clearance is still OK for most places I go. Previously at stock height I could roll over anything. But now I do sometimes come across areas where i scrape slightly but I am extremely careful these days and I have to be. Thats probably the most annoying thing though is having to worry about where I can drive and having to be EXTRA careful.

Has the dealer given you any trouble on lowering the car? I thought it voids warranty if you lower it
