Poll (18s or 19s on sport line)

Which did you order with your 335i sportline?

18s or 19s?

Did not realize that. I personally like the look of the 18s, but I like the staggered 19" setup.

19's offer no advantage that I can see but a bunch of disadvantages: worse ride, more expensive to maintain, more likely to destroy a tire or rim.

I think you are right. Im happy picking the 18s.

Do you know what brand of tires the new 335i will come equipped with?

there should be an option for getting the 328, since you cant get 19's...other wise the poll results might be skewed

18". If I was living in area with no potholes at all then I would definitely go for 19". Else 19" are not worth headache and extra costs.

Option for 17s? Had 3 BMWs with 18s. I'd rather 17s, thanks. The 18s and 19s add weight.
