Concave wheels- are 9.5'' on the front too big?

Im looking at getting concave wheels front and rear. They only do them in 19x9.5. Will that be too wide for the front? ie. Will it be hard to steer? Does the concave put stress on the suspension?

Also, I believe that if the car came with 17'' wheels out of the factory, you can only legally go to 19'' in Qld. Is this correct? Did the e90 come with 16'' or 17''?

I missed the last two answers.
1. Did they come with 17s as standard?
2. What is the max size you can go to in Qld?

1. Depends on your car/year. So the indicated response of "no" was correct because you could have 16" or 17". Look at your tire.

2. Legal to run anything larger than 19 in qld? I'm assuming you mean Queensland? I don't know what laws may be in place but practically speaking 20", even if they would fit, would be so rough they could potentially cause internal hemorrhaging to internal organs they'd be so rough.
