19 ins with P zeros for F20 out now

Hi guys I saw these wheels at my BMW dealer when I was collecting my F20 so I had them placed in front of My 18" to see what they looked like on the car

These are specifically designed for the F20
$4600.00 for the set of 4

I hope this will help anyone who wants to option them on their F20

I had the 320i coupe M Sport with the 19" grey ones on it as my loan car. If you buy them, you may need to buy a cushion for the seat as well.
They look fantasic but the ride is very hard

Sorry for the poor quality pics. I did not have my DSLR with me, so I took the pics on a Blackberry

I will call in there next week and take some close ups with the Canon

Those look cool! But I think the ride will be excruciatingly hard. And the price is really expensive! I'd stick to the 18"

The proper dimension for the 1 series is either 17" or 18", but is always good to have more options
In Germany the roads are so good as some larger wheels will not cause many problems

Thanks for the pics, it will save the trip to the dealer

I am happy with the 18'' on mine, however after putting that black wheel in front of my wheels and looking at the contrast against the EB paintwork, I am now wondering what my 18" style would look like in black or charcoal. I think it could be a good alternative to the 19"
I would be very interested to hear if anyone has thought about, or has had their M sport 18" painted black or charcoal gray.

My thought is that dark wheels tend to "disappear". In the dusk, it looks like the car has no wheels at all, so it could just as well had small, black steel rims.

Thanks, hadn't thought about that
My M3 wheels were a bit ratty when I bought it, so I had them sand blasted then polished and clear coated. I might do the same with the F20's when I need new tyres.

I think the 18 inch wheel would look great in charcoal or gunmetal or somethink like that. Especially with colours like Estoril Blue and Valencia Orange and Alpine White.
Black rims tend to dissapear, as ovekvam says.

with all the nicely screwed up roads in HK, my best is for 17 inches
I think 17 inches gives me the best handling and off the line performance
it's all about balance

Anybody know if 19x8.5 with ET32 will fit the M135i?
