19s are very possible depending on your suspension ive seen it and it doesnt rub as much as you would think...but it depends a lot on your suspension

19's will fit, but I think that those are just for show. I would go no bigger than 18's. In a few months, I will be getting 18x8.5 on mine.

yea the more i think about it, I think I might go with the 18 inch...Can I go any wider than 8.5? Someone told me I could go all the way to x10 before but he may have been full of it. I'm sure the wider you go, the more expensive it is too...Anyway thanks alot for the help and I will let you guys know whether or not I get this 325i I have been looking at!

I agree. 18's look best and I think 19's would be so low profile, it would beat the shit out of you driving.

Personally, I would only go with either 18"s or 17"s. I think that you would have to roll your fenders for the 19s to fit. Bling-bling + E36 = nono.

yes, you can go wider than 8.5, but you will need to roll your fenders to accomodate the wheels.
