Mein Auto: 2001 325CI
19" Wheels on a 2001 325CI

Would 19" wheels fit on my 2001 325CI (without scrubbing or sticking out the fenders)?

I am thinking: 235-35-19 on the front and 265-30-19 on the rear.
I an worried that the 265-30-19 will stick out beyond the frame.

Also, does anyone have this setup, if so - does it rub when you hit a bump or pot-hole?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!!!!

i had the same width all around. Why go for the 265 in the back. In regular day to day driving, it will not make any difference.

Raja,

I just like the staggered look better. Just cosmetic, nothing performance wise. Just don't want them to rub if I hit a bump. I had this happend with my old car and it tore up the wells.

At max I think 255-30-19 on the rear is recommended.


btw, what 19" rims are you planning on getting?


Also I ask everyone else, what 19" wheels do you guys recommend/like on our bimmers? Tires? How's the ride?
