I have the E36 shape BM 3 series and have seen a deal on some 19" alloys. Ws wondering if they would fit straight onto the car or if I'd need to modify anything. I've had problems putting large alloys on before and not sure why.

don't do it, just cause it will look good doesnt mean it will perform well!!!

get 18's or 17's, put low-pro tires on and hten you will still be able to lower it.

I've seen may people with them, but I would personally stick with 17"s. I guess 18"s could work, too, but not my personal preference. Performancewise, I don't think the 19's are the best for these car. Like it has been said before, you will not be able to lower your car. Keep in mind also that tires will be more expensive.

Oh, and , well, I think you don't need to do any adjustments as long as you get them with the right offset and width.

I wouldn't get the 19s. When my car was lowered, it rubbed in the rear when I went over a bump, even with my fenders rolled. Plus, I try to be really careful about dodging potholes and still my rims have dents all over them because of the low profiles. Now my car vibrates at certain speeds. It's gonna cost $225 a wheel to straighten them. It's REALLY a pain. Like they said, just get 17"s or 18"s, then at least you'll be able to lower your car.

I have a 325i on 19's and it is lowered all round 40mm, no problems with it at all, even when I've got 4 people in the car. I'll post some pics as soon as the sun comes out for more than 30 seconds, I'm in th UK. B)

sabbath130 is an unknown quantity at this point
i have 19'' wheels with low profile tires and my car is lowered.. i have ZERO rubbing issues...

however i do believe that the ride is way too uncomfortable for the benefit of looking nice. I hit a pothole and cost myself 200 bucks for A new tire..!! go with 18''s
