Im thinking about purchasing a 06-08 Bmw 530i, Most of the the wheels that are already of the cars are 17" and i was wondering if i could put 18"or 19'' wheels on the car with out it rubbing or any other problems.
Edit: I just bought a 08 528i, will these wheels fit correctly?

19" will not be a problem

I think the largest BMW OEM rims were 18/275/35 so i see no problem at all with 19" or even 20" but IMO 20" seems a bit oversize for my taste. 19" is the perfect size for the E60.

I've got 20's on my 530. I think it's perfect.

21" inch can be done. My buddy has them on his M5. However, it required the fenders to be rolled. So your good with your 19" w/o any issues.
I'm doing 20" on mine.

what size tires do you have and what car

20's are really the biggest you can go and maintain driveability and looks. I have seen 21's on the E60, they look ridiculous and stupid, mainly because your car ends up looking like a 4X4.
There was only one E60 with 21's that looked good, but that was an M5 that was widened significantly (he was running 355/25/21 rear tires)

Did you lower your car or is it at the original height?

My car is lowered 1.5 in. 20" rims. Front tire profile is 35 and the rear is 30. The fenders are rolled so there is NO rub when turned. The front wheels do rub the plastic inside fenders when start to go up a very steep embankment.

Nope, 17" is the smallest for an xi. Most rims are 8-9, but I've seen them down to 7.0".

Is it lowered? If so, by how much? Springs? CO's?

Yes. Currently I'm on KW V2's which you can see I've lowered it till the fenders cover the tire tread. Here's a pic of when I had the OEM sport suspension about 3 years ago.
