HELP!!! 19 or 20 inch M6 REPLICAS AND TIRES FOR MY CAR!

I have the 2007 650i Sport Package, and need to replace my tires (RunFlat) However, I want M6 rims and 20inch and problems moving up? The mechanic at the dealership told me to make sure they are compatible with metal or rubber valve stems (not sure). Can someone give me the specs I should get on my tires and where to purchase the rims?

19's look good and don't effect the performance of the car as they are a light weight compared to some stock rims. Also the 20's have been discontinued and may be hard to find. They will definately be heavier too.

to put it simply , I got the 19's and all my friends think they are awesome , besides people on the street that gawk at them modbargains.com has them on sale right now I believe

check my garage for pics just uploaded them

Personally I think the 19's are the way to go. With the M6 style rims they look damn good no matter what. You could drop the car a bit later on if you desire to make it sit a bit lower and that gives the impression that the rims are bigger than it actually is. I would stick with the 19's plus you have a bit more rubber on the road to help protect against the pot holes that seems to be potting up all over due to the bad winter.

So you said if you could do it again you would go with 20 inches? Modbargains does not sell them on 20 inches onluy 19? Do you know of a site for the 20inches? I see everyone says go to tirerack for the tires

Run flatts suck and dont last at all I have to replace 2 sets already and the car has only 15,000 miles the solution is to keep a can of fix of flatt or small compressor with plug kit
