Hey, I am 17 years old and I have a 1996 328i convertable 5 speed. I have had it for roughly 2 months and I decided I wanted to join a bmw forum since I love my car. That is why I am here. I will try to get some pics of my car ASAP.

With that said I have a couple questions.

-I just ordered 19" konig profils (black with chrome lip) but I havnt seen many E36's with 19's. Im not 100% sure if they will rub or not. I have Billistien racing struts and it almost looks as though a bigger wheel may hit it, so I figured someone on here might know.

-Also I could get Nanchang tires, or I could get Toyo Proxy 4's for 50$ more a tire. Is it worth it to get the Toyos?

thanks for the help.

-Gabe

first off, welcome to the forums!!

about your wheels... 19's will fit, but you are going to have to "roll" your fenders, because they will rub, we have a good search engine on this website, in which u can search many different topics other members have contributed...

welcome to the forums, and welcome to the bimmer world.. gotta show some pics!!

We need to know what the offset of the wheels are and also the tire size, then we can tell you for sure if it will work, I run 19's on my e36 with NO rubbing and no rolled fenders due to the correct offset and tire size.

i have 18x8 and no rubbing but my offset is high. it is 40+, keep it under 40+ and you should be okay. that would be the only reasons mine would rub (they dont cuz my car isnt lowered) egk2 what is you wheel size... 19x8??? or 8.5

Thanks for all the feed back.

-Im not sure on the offset, or tire size. Im am getting them through Town Fair Tires so If they dont fit they will probaly be able to send them back and get me 18's. I was just hoping the 19's would fit because I really want this particular rim.

-Anyone know Anything about Nanchang tires, and weither the Toyos are worth the extra$$?

I have Toyo T1-s tires on my e30, they have excellent traction in wet and dry but they are a bit loud. You should look into Kumho Mx's, I run them on my e36 in 235/35/19 and found them to be the best tire for the money out of several brands I have tried in the past such as Dunlop, Pirelli and Bridgestone.

I have a '94 318is and went directly to the local BMW dealership and
spoke to one of the guys in the parts department. He owns a couple of
Bimmers and told me that 18's are the largest wheels you should use,
if you're not going to lower your E36. If you're going to lower it, then
17's are the way to go. I followed his advice and got a set of 17 X 7.5
HP Racing wheels, 40mm offset, with Toyo proxies on them. I plan
to lower it with a Bilstein BTS kit. I haven't received the shipment yet,
but when I do, I'll let everyone know how they fit. I haven't had any
experience with Toyos. I have a 325es with Khonig wheels and Khumo
tires, I really like the Khumos too, but that's another story.

you will probably have problems with the 19's. I have Wanli tires and for the price...they are awesome. like 55.00 per tire shipped and they are directional and rated for high speeds andwhatnot.

Not really, but with a 318 you probably better off with a smaller and lighter wheel.

I would suggest 18... every car on the road seems stocked with big wheels and shiny rims... don't over do it

18s are too big for my style anyways. 18s will ride rough. 17s wuld be ideal for driving and performance. for looks 18 would be killer. if you really lookin for some wicked feedback then you go with the 19s but i always see them as flashy shit that really isnt smart to put on. rough ride and too heavy.

Good Luck with whatever you choose.
