Thanks for the info! I agree, 18’s would defiantly be better. I only thought about the 19’s because I had a set of them and was just wondering if they would fit good. I’ve seen a lot of people run 17 x 9’s.Welcome to Bimmerfest!
Yes, but... with the right offset ("et") and correct tire size, they'll work. A few years ago you'd have gotten ridiculed for fitting 19s on an E36, but since ultra-low-profile tires have become so common, they will no longer look so out-of-place. The ride, however, will likely be awful, like a hay wagon. The suspension was made to use tires with sidewalls as part of the energy-absorbing along with the shocks/struts. Putting near zero sidewall tires on it is going to result in a substantially harsher ride.
18" wheels are about the limit I can tolerate. View attachment 1076969
