    Need advise

    Hi all folks need some advise from u guys as i am thinking of changing a new set of wheel for my E66. Currently am on 19''(original BMW wheel), just wonder should I change back to same size of 19'' or upgrade to 20'' cause heard comfort level will be compromise if change to 20'' wheel(not sure how true this is ) BTW any idea how much will the fuel consumption increase if on 20''. Sorry for so many question

    the current 19" are on runflats, so if you go 20" non-runflats, you should be fine. in fact, i find the ride slightly better than the runflats. dun keep to 19", its not as aesthetically pleasing as 20-21".
