Wheels and tired for most bmx bikes are all 20 inches. Bigger bars would be a good start. You could also try a front load stem (or a stem with a longer reach) before committing to a new frame

I'm 15 and 6' and a 21" fits me perfectly. that being said everyone has different preferences. I do run my bars pretty far forward.
