Best size tire and wheel combo
I just bought my first Bimmer, its a 2003 325i, I want to replace the stock 16" wheels with something bigger, maybe 18". Can you guys give me some advice on what will fit and work the best. I dont want any rubbing problems or anything. Thanks in advance

as close as it gets and ypu should experience no rubbing aince the e46 has plenty of room under the wheel wells.
OK, I decided to go with the 18" M3 wheels, the front is 8.5"wide and the rear is 9.5" wide. What size tire do you suggest I mount on them. Will I have any rubbing problem?
I ordered my wheels today, went with the Manaco M3, 18x8 front and 18x8.5 rear, from BMW Parts and Wheels. They suggested 225/40/18 for front and 245/35/18 for rear. What does everyone think. Wish I could see a pic of a 325i with these tire sizes on it.
all of u...if u don't wanna any rubbing problems with ur big rims...don't worry...just need a wide body to fix that problem...custom ofcourse...like mine...i use 19"(8.5+9.5) with Toyo proxess4 225/35/R19 for front and 245/35/R19 for rear...
