If Im not mistaken the 325ci i ordered with Sport Package, includes the 225/45/17

So if i go up to an 18" wheel and stick with 45 series tire, Will it raise the car up too much and make it look like 4x4??? I think a 40 series tire would ride tooo rough, i dunno, thats why im asking YOUR opinions.. lol

BTW, I do not want to lower the car at all by the way of springs,shocks, im keeping it STOCK besides the tires and wheels
Thanks!

BTW what do you guys think of these?

The CAR WILL BE BLACK METTALIC SAFFAIRE

well if you look at my above post, im running 234/40-18 tires and i dont think it looks like a 4x4 and the from the view i took that pic, it may look like its lifted a bit; its stock suspension btw. but im gonna lower it subtly. :)

thanks!

as for ride quality, i did notice a bit more tire noise (this maybe the tires themsleves since ive heard ppl say pirelli P7000 SS tires are on the louder side). Handling was so much better than stock (for obvious reasons: i wished i had michellin pilot sports!). As in driving in pot holes and such: yes i must admit its a TINY bit more sensitive to holes and bumps, but its not very serious. Unless you live in like DC or something, i dont think it would be that bad.

...believe on this, if you took a ride in a M Roadster, you will love your 3er's smoothness and quietness so much more. The M roadster, you go over a tiny pebble, it rattles the car...but its fast :)
