20 Inch Rim Help

I am going down the road of buying some new Rims for my F10 X-Drive from another forum member, and had a few questions regarding ride quality and where I go from here.

Questions:
1) Will there be any rubbing in the tires?
2) Since I have AWD I will be un-able to rotate the tires I place on these rims, will that cause these tires to cup or wear away quicker then normal?

3) will my speed be correct since I am going up a size? I am coming off the stock rims/tires

Any guidance is very helpful, this is my first round with ever replacing rims with bigger ones/different ones.

Thank you very much,
PGH

Those are nice wheels man. Putting those 20's on your ride wont be a big deal. Speed will be correct ect. Not sure about tire wear since I don't have AWD but someone else on here will know that. They wont rub but the ride will be a little bumpier going to a bigger rim. Most guys on here are running 20's like myself. Just put the right tires on there. Most run 245/35/20 in front and 285/30/20 on the rear. Enjoy and hook up some pics!

Hello. because you have Xdrive I do not recommend aftermarket wheels. Bmw has many 20" rims to choose from. Originally and used 275 rear tire on Xdrive.

I agree I put 20 AC Schnitzer on mine and have had an issue with traction control and a tugging sensation on acceleration. Take the wheels off problem goes away. you should be ok if you use 4 identical tires and rims even if up a size and lower in profile. if you stagger on an x drive the small difference in profile height will translate to a different rolling distance for one revolution of the tire comparing the front to the rear. Some cars may pick this up as wheel spin and apply the brake.
