We have quite a few people doing both 18" and 19" sizing sizing for the E90. 18 or 19x8.5 ET35 front and 18 or 19x9.5 ET33 rear would work perfectly fine. We also make some wheels in 19x10 ET38 that will work on that car.

Tire specs would be 235/40/18 or 235/35/19 front, and 265/35/18 or 265/30/19 rear.

I'm not 100% on the amount it is lowered, but it looks like it's probably about 2".

Definitely do not do 245/45/19, that's way too tall. 255/35/19 is also too tall.

Unfortunately I can't really recommend much outside of that 235/35/19 size. You may find people who have ran 245s before, but I don't recommend that simply because it's going to either be a bit too tall, a bit shirt, and/or rub on the fenders. You may want to size the wheels down to an 18" size, and get 235/40/18 tires instead. Those will have a taller sidewall but due to the difference in the wheel diameter you'll end up about the same as where you're at now.

A 245/35/19 is a bit taller and wider than we recommend for the front and rear. If you look through the forums I'm sure you'll find people running this size though.

Ricardo, your car looks good! Really sleeper. I'll never forget the moment that you said you had a 700 horsepower sedan with a 1JZ in it haha.

I'll help you out.

I'm slightly tucking in the front and really tucking in the rear, but unsure of my ride height... And no, it's a lot lower than stock sport suspension.

Hm.. are you on 19's?
