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.

he's talking E36, and e30_325_s52 your talking about e46....true on the e46 i can fit 19x10 in the rear without any moditifications, and i can fit 19x9 in the front...BUT for a e36, on a sedan, the max i would go is 18".....19"s dont even look right on non-m e46s.....but the e46 m3 has a larger wheel well....so 20"s can fit

19"s are fine.. no real rubbing problems here.. i run 19x8.5"s all around with 235/35/19s all around. Im pretty low too.. rears are tucked and a small gap in the front. The rear passenger side will scrape the inside well if theres a few people in the car if anything.

Take it from me....go with an 18x8.5 ...NO WIDER......I have on my car right now 18x9.5 in the rear and 18x8.5 in front and the rears rub like a mother fucker....So bad that I rolled the fenders and they still rub...to just drive the car Ive had to install some ghetto helper block in the rear so they dont rub until I can get a chance to do some body werk which completely negates the look of my eibach lowering springs........Stay with 17's....youll be much happier BELIEVE me.....Looks HOT ....but its not practical for hard Driving

19's for show, no rubbing providing you stay with a higher offset, ie. et43mm
18's for a blend of show and go.
17's for performance.
