well i would say 18" with the body kit u got now, but if you ever decide to go with a M-tech kit, then def 16X9, but if u wanna be all out Euro then 16X11

hmm you ever saw a e30 with 19 inches wheel?? it looks ridiculous (imo) there was a pic floating around on max with a E30 on 19 inches, someone post it so he can get a good idea how it looks.

btw i say 18 with the car as it is now , 16 if you go m-tech

ya, 8.5" would be too wide.....the 5zigen's aren't to bad in price....i gotta a good hook up for them......plus the 5 zigen are not a proper fit (high offset)......

the roja formula 7 come in 19"x8" 4x100 et 23.... according to their site... click here

I agree. Also think of the tire size you would need to run. Canada has winters, therefore potholes are pretty abundant. Hit a pothole with a 215/30/19 tire, your rims will not come out on top. I have a hard enough time not ****ing up my 16s with a 215/45/16 tire. I've already had to get them fixed after only 1 summer of driving. I am relativey careful.
