Wheel Size
 
New to bmw's I just bought a 328i looking for wheels. I can't seem to find out the largest wheel size for the real without rolling the fenders. Can anyone help with this?? Thinking about 18 or 19's

Most people stick to 8 inches wide in the rear. Some say you can go as wide as 8.5 but it's cutting it close! 9 is definitely too wide and you WILL have to roll the fenders!

you can get a lotta different sized for 19's without rolling the fenders... i think 19x8.5 is pretty safe, but then you have to make sure you get the right offset. if you get the right offset, i think you may be able to get a wider wheel in the back.

OEM m68, m71, m72, etc. are all 8.5" rears without problem. I don't think very many people go with 8" rears, especially aftermarket. Like CiRaceTechnik said, you can probably do 19x8.5 without issue.

with 18inch wheels you could run 9.5 in the back w/out issues.
