Question Wheel Recommendation for 35d

Would it be a good idea for put on 4 20" Replica front wheels all around for 35d base model?
Preferred the ride comfort over the looks. I saw some complained about the vibration or something like that on Replica Staggered set up.
Please educate me if my thoughts are wrong. Thanks.

Looks like 19" OE are not that expensive. What size of tires go with the 19"? Thanks.

Breathtaking to think you can get OE quality for only $175 per wheel...


ANYWAYS.....

"OE" means "BMW", just FYI.... Pick up some 19s from someone with a burning desire to 'upgrade'

255/50-19s work on a 19" OE. Other sizes should work too, I haven't checked.

Okay. I'll keep an eye on fm like a hawk. Do you know any specific place in mind?

Got used 19" OEMs while I'm dying to get 20" but I don't think those suitable for Northeast roads especially in winters. Thanks ard for bring these up. It came with 50% of michelin tires but still want to put new tires on. What specific brand of all season tires good to go for 19"?

I've got the replica 20" with Vredestein tires for over a year now and they have been great to me. Driving over put hole invested roads, wildlife barriers and gravel roads and no vibrations etc..

For the winter I got the stock 19" with Pirelli snow and ice.
