    Standard vs Alpina wheels

    My 2002 Z8 is equipped with the factory 18 wheels. I have been considering purchasing the 20 Alpina wheels as 18s look a bit small to me. Also wondered if there is a 19 Alpina type wheel that would fit the car.
    Opinions would be appreciated

    There is an entire sub-forum on this site dedicated to wheels/tires. Almost every conceivable option. I am certain you can find the information you are looking for there. I have 19" E60 M5 wheels on mine. No modifications required, not even spacers. It looks outstanding.

    Thanks very much
    I am likely going to stay with the std 18 wheels. 19 wheels with the std design would be ideal
