IMO it's the wideness that makes it look retarded, i run 26" and 8 and i am a tad bit smaller.
so yeah go for it.

tad bit? your like 4 foot...

Are you seriously worried about looking gay? If so, get out. Bmx is about having fun, not looking cool or rubbish or whatevaz.

Whereas i'm 5'10 and after trying all the different widths available, i settled on liking 25-26 wide.

So it really is just preference.

If you think they'd be too big, don't get bars that you wouldn't feel totally comfortable with owning, just for the fact that you really like the look/angles of them.

Should be okay, keep in mind, 8" bars feel good for me at around 5'11" and I've been riding a mountain bike for the last like 4 months since all of my others were out of comission

if they feel to big after you get them, you can flip your stem and/or cut them so they're not as wide

how much rise do your current bars have?
