You can't make them look good.
18's are even too much. 17's maximum.

19s would look awkward on an e30, i even think 17" is too much.. 15x8 or 16x8 is what you wanna run..

Didn't that Jordan cat run 19"s? I ran 18"s, and while it looked ok, the 215/35r18 tires were like rubber bands.

Edit...there was another OG here that ran some 19"s. I can't remember his user name though.

It's been done before, but it's pretty hard to pull off without the car looking like a hotwheel.

This is one of the few times I've seen 18's pulled off nicely. But you can see that with respect to the car 18 is starting to get too big. 19's would look silly

I love this car, but goddamn, everytime I look at it, because its so 'empty' my eyes get drawn to the messed up door gaps. Its even worse on the passenger side... uggh.

^^^ I dunno the overall diameter of the tire looks wrong. Totally awkward and useless weight.

Yea for looks, performance and sanity 17" max
