19"-20" undecided

I have a 12, 528i xdrive and looking to u upgrade my wheels. Now im on the fence on 19" or 20" non staggered. I had a specific wheel but only to find out it doesn't come in 20" biggest is 19". Im opting to go for the 19" and get a drop H&R springs to close the gap. Im asking if anyone has an xdrive with 19" with dropped springs trying to see the end results. im still looking for other wheels of my liking in 20" but im in NYC and a 35 side wall is to low of a profile dealing with all the potholes we have and the handling of the 20" if any pics or advice would greatly be appreciated

I just put on a staggered set of 20x9/20x10.5 wheels on my 2016 535i xDrive. Tire sizes are 245/35 & 285/30. H&R sport springs went on a few weeks later. no fitment issues or rubbing. New wheel tire setup matches OEM diameters exactly. That is what is crucial to ensure no awd issues.

here are some pics:

For NYC with the potholes, you'd probably be better off with the 19s and maybe slightly larger tires for comfort if running RFTs.

If this were in Vegas or somewhere warm year-round, then the 20s would look great.

If wrecking your ride quality is an 'upgrade', then go for 20s
