HAVE STOCK 16" WHEELS '04 325i, CAN I PUT 18"?

Im wondering if I can put 18' or even 19's on my 2004 325i. I dont like the wheels on her at all. here's a pic of the fer-ari s wheels .I will buy these if someone says that 18's will work... their on ebay in EUROSTOP STORE for only $900..(set of 4). I think they're SHMOKIN.......... also any tire links would be appreciated... thanks good people for all your help.... JJ in T.N.

AHHHHH!these wheels also come in the dark silver .they're HOT though aren't they? my friend just spent $5000 on wheels for his truck and they look almost like the stock wheels on my car...... It's funny to me , it's all a matter of taste... hell im complaining about spending about $900 w/ no tires.

id say chrome or silver over black.
and, in the world of automobiles, you can pretty much do anything. It's just a matter of how much you wanna spend.
Here in Florida, I've seen 24s on ford focus!

man, take a long lingering look at the picture of your ride as she is, how the hell can you improve on that , she's a beautiful ride,imo you put chromies on her, you spoil her big time.
wouldn't you consider some alloy bmw 18's.
That rides too nice to spoil with chrome.

Besides the size, can you give me any more info, offset and lug pattern?, the silver ones look hot, the chrome ones belong a 67 cadi IMo...

You can put up to 20's on your ride if you can find them. The trick is getting a 20 x 7.5 with a +35mm offset (most common). You can also fit a 20 x 8 if you can get it with a +45mm offset. 19's are the same except that they are a little more expensive that 20s believe it or not because of their rareity. If you wanna go with the staggered look or put M3 wheels, you have to be prepared because the back wheels will stick out about 1/2" You will probably need to roll your fenders, add a coil over spring shocks, and go with no more than a 265 wide tire. Or you can just do what I did and spend 10 bucks on spring spacers and add the wider wheel in the back.

And there is nothing wrong with chrome wheels. I got chrome 19" hamman's pg-2 style wheels 19 x 8.5 in front with 225/40/19 in front and 19 x 9.5 with 265/30/19 in the rear and looks pimpin especially with the topaz blue paint.

Im Glad I Chose The Chrome... It Looks Sweet On Black... I Put Euro Tail And Euro Front Corner Lights On It Too. I Putt A Crossfire 650watt Rms Amp And Bmf 10's... I'll Tell You How Sweet My Bmw Is, Every Friday Night There's A Car Show In My Town And There Is All Types Of Hot Rods , Oldies, Custom Cars , You Name It.... I Just Pulled In To Check Out The Cars And Walk Around. So I Parked At The End Of The Last Car In The Show And I Ended Up Being In The Show. People Were Comming Up Checking Out My Car , I Was Getting One Compliment After Another (my Head Was Swelling) Cause There Was Some Sick Rides There... I May Not Have An M3 But Im Proud Of My Little 325i....

I would NOT recommend 20's. 18's are definitly pushing it. On my E36 i run 17's and i have just enough clearance without having to roll the fenders. If you get 18's you WILL have to roll the fenders or you wont be able to turn.

Hi,

I recently purchased a set of 19'' rims: 19x8 with 38mm and 19x9.5 with 40mm offset. Is it possible to fit 265/30 in the rear without fender mod. or rubbing? I own a 2004 325ci with factory sport package. Or maybe I should stick with 255/30...Need Help.
