I have seen 20s on e32 7s and I think they would look good on my 850ci, I have 17 on thete now and they look small and I have seen 19in on 8s but not 20in

In my humble opinion, 20s are too big on the 8er and look silly on it. The biggest I would run on an 8er is 18" wheels. It's a big heavy car and 20s don't give you enough tyre sidewall to cushion the ride and you're going to be dealing with bent rims.

That said, that front tyre size should fit but the rear tyres diameter is more than 3% bigger than the front so it might run havoc on the traction control module.

Post pictures if you put the 20s on your car...
