Hello everyone,

I used to have 17in. wheels and tires for my snow package and used the stock 18in sport rims for the summer, by the way I drive a 545 2004 sport package. I'm thinking about using the 18's for the winter and upgrade to 19in tires and wheels. Will the ride quality suffer? If not, which tire and wheel combination do you recommend?:dunno:

I have the 19's on my 5 and love 'em! I never had the 17's or 18's to compare but I have no complaints on noise, handling, ride quality, etc....

here's my suggestion on wheels, but of course I'm biased :-)

JDL92,
I don't have 19s but my 18inch snows work great in jersey winters...

lynnje,
