I am trying to decide on whether to put some 18" or 19" rims on my 2001 540I. Its got 17's with the sport package on it right now. Can anyone give any insight into 1) is there a ride difference between the 18's and 19's? 2) am i going to have to lower the car? The people that sell the rims say they will fit but i guess they dont tell you that you'll have a monster truck after if you dont lower it. 3) those of you that put on 18s or 19s do you wish you had or went with the opposite size?
attached should be a picture of the car.

Just one quick point...
The bigger the wheel, the less rubber!
The ride could be a little rough with 19" wheels. The tires will wear faster as well.
I have 18" wheels and happy. I don't see myself going any bigger than that.

OK, so i bought the 19's. I'll post a picture and a response to my first post once they are on there and i drive them around and see how they feel. Thanks for the responses everyone.
