My Ride: 00' 323i, 05' S2000

off top of my head, only thing I can think of when wheels cause damage to the car is either you have the wrong offset, or you put wrong sized tires and end up rubbing the wheel wells. never heard that it'd break your suspension though. maybe he's referring to a harsher ride due to the lower tire profile and the larger diameter, that -could- potentially decrease the life of your shocks as well as cracking the subframe; but I doubt anyone here's experienced damage due to 19's.

for a 325 sedan, stick with 235/35/19 tires all around if you want to be safe. you could go a bit wider in the back if you choose to.
