not sure on sizes, but money can make anything fit, 19s fit, so i assume 20's will with some crazy fender rolling.

I thought you had to modify the car to fit 19's, so 20's, Furious is right, crazy fener rolling. I have even heard that 18's can rub depending on lowering car and tires.

20's? I'm not sure about the fit...but IMO it wouldn't look right and your E36 will be dwarfed by the size of the rims.

18s or 19s may look just as good....

I featured car(e36) in BMW Performance magazine had 20's on it, looked really bad, 19's are big enough.

Hahaha, Iono...20's is a bit overkill? I'd go with 17 or 18's, but I'm not your captain, do whatever floats your boat. :wink

I also think 20's are a bit of an overkill for an e36. Go with 18's or 19's at most.

get a bigger car like a 740il or 528i if you want to throw dubs on there...but the E36 body is too tiny already for 18s and 19s!

Putting 20s will just be like putting Shaquile Oneal's big ass sneakers on Mini Me's feet.

I'm rollin 18's on a stock E36 and they rub alittle sometimes. Lost alittle of my ride too. In my opinion(for what its worth) Don't go bigger than 18's!
