help with rim and drop..
i have a 01 330i i want to get 19" m6 reps but what tire size and drop would i need? i dont want any rubbing and i dont want to have to roll my fenders. my budget on lowering is $1000 so what would be an idle setup for me? ive been eyeing the eibach pro systems springs and shocks form modbargins since thats were im gonna get my rims also. any feedback is much appreciated!

Coupes/Convertibles: 235/35/19 and 265/30/19 on a non-Lowered car. You may rub if you lower on this setup.

To be absolute safe, go with the following setup.
All E46 non-M: 225/35/19 and 255/30/19 are 100% safe even on lowered vehicles

As for the drop. Check out Eibach Prokits or H&R Sports. If you want to go with a maximum aggressive drop, do H&R Race. I recommend swapping out your shocks as well with the springs...

A good choiuce would be the H&R cup kit, they are springs/shocks combo designed to complement each other...also pretty cost effective.

Scale down the tires a bit for your 330i sedan, get a 235/35/19 and a 255/30/19 with the wheel specs Cal listed above.
