-16"x9" rims

try to think of handling well as looks...also, keep in mind how my cars looks now.....i probably wont be giving it a make-over like i had planned...

if you take away that rear spoiler (sorry, i HATE exposed alluminum on cars!) i would say go with the 18's!
i would KILL to have a car like yours, i'd thro an M tec package all around with some NICE 16 X 9's, looks SOOOOOOOO SEXY!

16x9!!!!!!! Take the wing off though. It worked with the 18s but I think it would look out of place with 16s. Less rim means less show.

nah ... 16x9 all the way ! *th-up*

18's bro....too much hassel and money for 16X9's!

If your gonna dump your car on 16z, it'll look nice. Pending on the rims obviously. But I don't think you'd want to go any lower than you are right now with the Rieger kit. The 16z would not look that great if your gonna leave it at the height itz at now, and if it goes any lower aren't you gonna scrap? I would go with 18'z personally. But get what YOU like.

19inch doesn't look good on an E30. Too big. This is how I see it:

E30 - 18inch looks perfect
E36 - 19inch looks perfect
E46 - 19/20inch looks perfect

With your body kit the 16" X 9" wheels will look odd. Stick with a nice set of 18's.


Miguel 12-05-2003 02:27 PM

you know what... you've done the 18" thing before right? go 19".
be original.

My bro sent me this link. 13-9.5, with an offset of -16...yeah negative offset..ugly old school rims...crazy size

With A big kit you need big wheels.

18" or 19" is good!
