Hello to all,

New to this forum, wanted to ask I have a 325XI 2002, I am planning on getting new tires and rims. Wanted to get bigger ones than the ones I got when I purchased the car. I have been looking and the info I get is I can go 18,19,20 on the rims. What would be the best as far as handling and driving. I think wider tires look so B) cool. Wher can I go to get the best deal.

Any information will be greatly appreciated and it will help to make an educated decision.

Thanks
Tom

Hey!
I live in Englewood, Co. and with the condition of the streets around here I think that the 17's I have are fine. 18's would be nice for more spirited driving, but I even still worry about damage from road hazards.

I have decide on getting 18.8" all around and I found a rim made by Monet called Nude. Discount Tires can get them and alot cheaper, this way I save on shipping. Waiting to decide on which tires to get.. Any suggestions???

Yokohama AVS-ES100's were ok but seem to tramline alot, I have Michelin PS2's now and can't belive how much better a tire they are than the Toko's were. the other tires I was considering were the Bridgestone SO3 (I think that is what is in the picture) and the Goodyear Eagle F1. It depends on your budget and how you drive your car.

Is this a picture of the rim you are looking at?
