if you want oem i prefer 20" style 303 and with standard tire sizes. 245/40/20 front 275/35/20

if after market depends on style. i love my aftermarket 22" but i also have oem 303 bmw wheels. the ride not to much of difference since my RFT on 20" rides rough. the 22" have nonRFT. with 22" wheel on it make car look more aggressive. the 20" more standard business look (adult like as wife says) even after i coated them with liquid Black coating.

Ditto.... the wheels on his car look awesome. I went from a 19 inch wheels on my car to 22'see and the ride is actually better to me. I changed my mind on lowering my car because I actually liked the look without lowering. The question would be, how are your roads and how conscious are you of them.
