Considering going from 17" to 19" hell even 18" :tsk: my main concern is ride quality and if i have to do anything to the suspension :rolleyes: some members have advise me to stick with 18"

Looking into tires as well so far i've looked into Falken Azenis and Ziex. This is for a 98 e39....


Thanks!!!

Common 18" sizing on the E39 is 235/40R18 or 245/40R18 all around, or wider rear 265/35R18 or 275/35R18 will a possible fender lip roll.

Ride will be more firm with the 19" options, which are commonly 245/35R19 front and 275/35R19 rear with possible fender lip roll.
