My Ride: 2000 328i
2000 328i Sedan tire/wheel combo?

Ok, going to show my ignorance for a sec.

I want to get BBS CHs in 19" and am thinking the following will work. Please correct me if Im wrong. I will be lowering a bit to make the ride look better so I dont want rubbing.

Front:
19x8.5 with 225/35-19

Rear:
19x9.5 with 245/35-19

Will this work? Trying to do searches and research and just want to pass it by all you who know a heck of a lot more than me first.

Mahalo,
Dave

245/35 on a 9.5 wheel is going to stretch the tire out. Normally 265's are made for 9.5-10 but you can fit a 255 on there easier than a 245. If you are going to get BBS CH's then I would say just 8.5 all the way around as there is no really noticeable dish in the rears of them because they aren't that type of wheel. 19x8.5 with 235/35/19 all around. That way tires will be cheaper and you can buy a spare and it will always fit your wheels.
