They will stick out about an inch past your fender so these wheels will not fit. +## means offset,

And offset is the distance of your wheel centerline and its mounting pad, measured in mm. "0" is being right in the middle.

Nope, they can't be modified. They will look ghetto. Look elsewhere.

Bigger chassis got nothing to do with offset.. and those models have lower offset than F10

$1500 wheels & tires ... it's going to be very tough !

Did you try Tirerack. They have some clearance wheels for your model.

As you have mentioned, VMR & AG wheels should be around $1000 for the set of 4. But they are gravity cast.

I think Avant Garde are low pressure cast which is better than just gravity cast. I prefer the M368 for the F10 body. Sporty but still classy.

$1500 for wheels and tires in 20" setup is going to be really tuff.

gravity cast< low pressure cast< form flowed < Forged

This is how wheels are made in the order from weakest (gravity cast) to strongest (forged)

Simply put cheap gravity cast wheels will bend/crack more easily than a forged wheel.

I've had cheap replica wheels before and they bend like swiss cheese. Might seem like you are saving money in the beginning but in the long run you'll end up spending more money since you have to keep fixing or replacing those cheap wheels.

+1 One big pothole hit and you are toast !

Besides, the paint finish on these gravity cast wheels are pretty bad.

Chinese Made gravity cast wheels = Headaches (lack of quality control during production process). Do note the VMR wheels are made in Taiwan and the quality is hit & miss.

OP, will you consider going 18"

There is a group buy on Apex wheels. Flow formed cast wheels. But still around $1100 for set of 4 - wheels only
