19'' Wheels

Will 19'' wheel fit on my 1994 BMW E36? 19x8 up front and 19x9 on the rear. I had this car since I bought it in Germany in June of 1994 and still runs great and looks great. I am now looking to change somethings and bring it up to date as I restore the inside and outside.

WILL 19" wheels fit? Yes, if the offset is right and the correctly sized tire is used.

SHOULD 19" wheels be used on an E36? NO.

With 19" wheels you'll need to run 225/30 x 19 tires to be at the same diameter as stock and the car is going to look funny with that skinny rubber and ride like crap.

19" is waaaaay too big for an E36. Your tires will be like rubber bands. Constant blowouts, bent wheels, and terrible ride... Not worth it.

How much fender roll and pull did it take for those 19 foot wheels?
