this is on an E36, right?

i'm on staggered style 32's (exact same specs), and I have FK coilovers. The rears are maxxed, and the fronts have about 3/4" left. The car sits pretty low. 205/40/R17 all around. It depends how much you want to tolerate rubbing wise. You'll definitely need to roll your fenders, I'm sure you already know that. I dont have the best roll in the rear, so my rim knocks my fender every so often. I don't really have any problems in the front.

I'd say go for coilovers and dump it lol but that's just me. you can go pretty low though if you go with 205/40's
