19's can fit without a problem depending on your width, offset, and tire selection. Posting the following would help us assist you with fitment.

Narrow your options first looking around in the forums for something that catches your eye, then choose the wheel size...
Some styles in 18" look pretty good with the adequate drop.

Generally the most common setup amongst the E46 coupe guys are 8.5 +35-40 offset front with a 235 tire and a 9.5 +45 rear with a 255/265 tire. This will be a flush fitment on all 4 corners without the need of fender rolling as long as you are at stock height.
