how do 18's fit on an e36

Hi guys
Im getting 18's for my 94 320 e36
but the problem is that i havent dropped it yet
and I wanted to know...if my car is gonna look really stupid, is it gonna raise it by a lot, or will the opposite effect happen and the wheel might tuck...

I will drop my car its just a mattter of time..but for the time beein...

drop the car first and then install the 18's. I find the car looks really goofy if you keep the ride height stock.
you should be able to fit anything up to 8.5" wide without having to roll your fenders.

Nah not even, i mean i drop does look a LOT better, but if you can't afford the drop just get the rims, what i like with 18's is that fill in the wheel wells perfectly, and i found that it didn't raise my car at all since i had the same tire ratios!

I say put the 18's on first and then lower it to your liking! Also, you shouldn't have any problems with rubbing or making the car look raised. Good luck with the setup!

my car is being stored for a while and they won't be used for about a year and I don't want them just laying around. I'm gonna be looking at some 5 spoke m3 staggered rims or 18" ACS III. I don't really want to let them go cause I haven't really seen these rims yet on any bimmer in the GTA

here's one of my fav pics
