Rim and Tire Advice...

Im just about ready to swap my winter 16s and look for some summer rims and tyres for my 2000 E46.

Can I put 19 inch rims on my car without having to do any mods? My car is not the sport package. And if I put 19s, what tyres size should I look for?

Anyone recommending a tyre store? I was thinking of pacific mall...

with 19's your looking at something like between a 225/30 or 35 and possibly up to a 255/30 or 35.

personally i wouldn't go to pacific mall for rims and tyres but lets see what other members of the forum say. i've heard good things about Xtreme Tire Garage in port credit. i'm also pretty sure that 19's would fit without any mods.

So the 255 on the 19 would be wider then ride? As long as theres no rubbing and no mods required Id love to go for the 19s...

Only reason I looked at pacific as an option is cos their prices are competitive...my budget is 14-1500 and some of these other guys are way over priced.

For your price range you should be able to fins a decent set of quality used rims with tires.
