1985 325e rims

My stock size rims are 195/65/14
Up to what size can I go to without having to do suspension work? 15's, 16', 17's?

Prolly 17's.. I have 16's on the front and 17's on the rear. I'm lowered and the 17's tuck pretty nice. be more worried about width of the rims than anything.

According to their website, the "Remember" 16" is only available in "virtual chrome". They are a discontinued series.
