I personally have 19'z and i think thjey look sick
but i just bent one, it sux ass
so the bigger they are the more likely to get damaged, keep that in mind

I'm going with 19" as well, anything else will look kinda small

When I first saw an E39 sport with the style 5s like mine, I thought the wheels were super hard core! It's amazing how they look so small by today's standard!

Have you checked the roadfly forums? There are plenty of pix with 18s and 19s.

I'd go with a nice set of 20's for the 5 series.
