My Ride: 2000 323 CI
Question 19' Breyton Visions

I tried posting this earlier and didn't get many replies. I currently drive a 2000 323 ci (Coupe). I bought a staggered setup of 19' Breyton Visions. 19 X 9 Front & 19 X 10 Rear. I havent bought tires for them yet. I want to lower the car to give it a more aggressive stance, but I have been told by a local shop that 10 inch wide wheels are too wide for the rear and can't be mounted. When I look in to tire rack, it says they fit. HELPPPPPP!!!! Does anyone have this set-up currently? What tire sizes do you recommend? What about suspension mods? Lower the car? Keep it stock height? How does the car ride quality/handling change with these much larger wheels? Im sorta new to the BMW owner's club. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Lastly....does anyone have pics of this setup on their car?

They can fit. There are plenty of non-M3 people here running 10s in the rear. Your local shop doesn't know jack. If memory serves, 255 is as wide as you can go in the rear safely.

1) the 19x10s in the rear will fit jsut as long as the offsets were not meant for m3
2) on a 19x10 rim the lowest width you can go is 265 without stretching the 255
3) if you end up getting the 265's in the rear, you have to roll the crap out of your fenders especially since you want to drop your car so that it doesn't rub
