So has anyone actually placed new wheels on their GLA yet?

Really considering putting 20s on mine. HRE FF01 or TSW Nurburgring, had the TSW in matte gunmetal on my old Z4 and loved it so I'm contemplating getting it again.

I have lightweight flow-formed 19x8.5's in +35 offset by Advanti on mine. I love them. Acceleration, braking and handling all improved through the decrease in rotating mass. I lost 11lbs per wheel from stock. 11 x 4 =44lbs in reduced rotating and unsprung mass which equates to 44 x 2 = 88lbs of 'sprung' weight (approximately) off of the vehicle.

Plus they look great!

I also have the CLA250 'sport' brakes that are cross drilled, and they weigh about 2lbs less than stock per corner.

Nice!

No problems with 8.5 width and +35 offset?

My main concern is rubbing but I am not trying to go extreme, would likely go with 20x8.5 +43 offset.

The optional 20's are 20x8 and I think the offset is +45 so I think I should be safe with my choice.
