Anyone running 19" wheels still?

i'm kinda paranoid to go to 20s cause of 2 rim cracks. (bad roads) love the look of 20"+ but......
anyone have pics of m5 style 353 or CSL/VMR style 19" reps on their F10?

Don't do 19" aftermarket, you will regret it. Just looks a tad small on the F10 chassis. Go 20" and just drive careful. Hard to imagine your roads can be worse than ours here in NYC and lots of members here make it work.

I second what Bake said. The only 19" wheel that looks good on the F10 are the oem wheels.

If you want to go 20"s just go with something oem or higher quality brands. Most cheap brands are just gravity cast wheels which is the weakest you can buy.

I'm running stock 19" 351 for now, planning to get some new wheels, but still struggling to find a design I like that is super concave, and I'm also not sure if I should go 20" or 21".
I don't drive on bad roads, so 21" would probably work out fine for me, but I am a little worried that it will ruin too much of the comfort, though the 19" run flats and 20" regular tire are probably very similar when it comes to comfort, so 21" is probably not so bad.
