Aftermarket wheels

Are bmw dealerships fine with aftermarket wheels?

Since the range rover is so unreliable the dealers always try as hard as they can to blame aftermarket wheels as the cause of the problem. So I stopped doing it with the range rovers.

I was thinking about getting these wheels for the gran coupe, I like the look and also like that they don't look much like aftermarket wheels. They also come in 20 inches, which is nice.

But I am wondering what the dealers reactions usually are to aftermarket wheels, and if they would put them on the car when it arrives. I didn't want to ask the dealer before I got some opinions.

I was going to use the stock 20 inch tires that come with the individual package, you think that is a bad idea?

If that's the case I might as well order 19 inch wheels, I ordered 20's thinking that $1300 is about what the tires cost.
