I have 19's... no complaints with the ride, although it's definitely more rough than riding stock. If you get 18's, you have to slam it to make it look good.

you'd need to slam it with 19's as well. The bigger the wheel, the more pronounced the wheel gap between the fender is. It may appear that you'd need a slam moreso with 19" than with 18's

I'm running staggered 19s with 265 in the rear.... looks great and the ride is probably somewhere in roughness between my stock 3 with 16's and my friends M3 with oem 19's

Definately look hot though!!!!

I believe the majority of this forum..hahaha lol some are even riding on 20s...

19s are the way to go...If you could budget it I would recommend 19s all the way..the bigger the better it looks

BTW my 19s are for SALE...asking $3300 for everything which includes shipping...

I've got 19's and have dented the sh1t out of them twice now and i havn't had them for a year yet. They look f'in awesome, but you have to be real careful if you get real low pro tires.

My car is lowered. I might be able to push 18's, but i'm happy with my 17's. I think my car looks good. The ride quality of stock is gone though. but it's not bad.

take it to wheel/tire shop, I think they'd know, they can tell with the wheel balancing machines.

if you've hit potholes another thing you want to check for is tire blisters, especially on the side of the tire facing inward. I hit couple potholes pretty hard, nothing happened to my wheel so I thought nothing of it. A month later one of the tire went flat one morning in the garage. When I was swapping the flat, I noticed that two other tires have blisters. I was lucky they didn't burst when I was driving on the fwy.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I thought dent is a scratch, and I think what you are trying to ask is How to find out if your rims are BENT?
and Like the other reply, You can check it when you balance them.
