I am looking into after market wheels for my 330i. I am not sure if I should go with 18 or 19 inch wheels. I do know if I go to 19 I will have to roll the under fenders in the rear. The car is not used much. It is a weekend car. Any help would be appreciated. Also please post some pictures of your cars so I can see the different wheels on the market on a 330.
Thanks

I haven't been to New York, but based on many posts here, I hear New York has lots of potholes. But, since you state that you are going to use your car for the weekends only, I would recommend 19's. If you already have the stock 17's from the sport package, it would not be worth spending all that money just for an inch more IMO.

FYI just b/c you have 19s doesn't mean you need to roll the fenders.

On that note, here's my car on 19s.



and here on 18s

I was under the impression that since I wanted to go with
265-30-19 I had to roll the fenders. If this is not true what other options do I have? Your car looks sweet with those AC rims. I was thinking about HRE wheels but after seeing the price I am not sure.

Hi, I have 18s . If i had 19s, my rims would not look normal by now :yikes: I hit pot holes twice, hard enough to stop the cd player from playing music :confused: I think 18s would still look nice if you lower your car right. But honestly 19s look nicer however I don't regret getting 18s. So in overall I recommend 18.5s!

Maybe you're thinking you have to roll the fenders because you want 265's. That might be a bit much. I have an '02 325I w/19's and I've lowered it some with PSS9's and I have no rubbing without rolling the fenders. I think I'm running 245's (the tires are in storage for winter so I can't check).
