Question about Rims/tires

sup guys just a small question that im doubting..

I own a 325i 94 and currently still have the stock tires on them..
The car hasnt been lowered or anything.
question? Will a 19" staggered rims with rubber fit or will there be any minor conflicts?

if you're worried about rubbing, run 215/30/19

they're actually a little smaller than the wheels/tires you have now/

And if you're not lowered, you shouldn't have much of a problem.

double check your offset. Not sure what it should be but it's important too!

19's will fit with the right offset.

what do u mean offset?

i just did a check on my tires/rims and its all at 225/50R16 92V
and still abit more space for tires to make a turn... so since those fit in my car...should i still look something like 225/50/19 or it has to be alittle less...can someone gimi options or if u own a 94 325i and u manage to fit 19" without a problem..let me see pic if u dont mind and stats of the size. and also if i could get a size range from what to what i should be looking to get..that would be great. ( reminder my car hasnt been lowered or anything..its all as is)

225/50/19 will be hideously gargantuan!

You will need to stay within your stock diameter, so probably 225/35/19. Wheels should be around ET40 if they're 8 or 8.5" wide. Unless you drop the car heavily and stiffen up the suspension to help with rubbing, it may not look right. Personally, go with 18s if you want to play it safe.

Depends on the width and offset of the rears. Running wide 19s out back is very, very tough.

without lowering your car u wont have any rubbing they just wont look very good . your car and its up to u but i doubt u will be happy with 19's . i recently did 18" csl reps with h&r race springs and even the 18's look big on my car

17's or 18's. 19's look weird unless the car is slammed.

To get another set of rims, I'd do 18's. 17's look good but I think the proportion of an 18 would look better.
