Forums thoughts on how these look... Too big?

My neighbor was actually throwing away his winter setup from his X5 as he is moving to Florida. They are Enkei Ammodo 19's. I Went garbage picking and thought I would fit one to my car to see how it would look and if it would fit. It seems the backspacing looks perfect. I thought I would see what the opinion of the forum was before I bought tires. Are 19x8's too big on an E46 Sedan? Or should I stick with the style 68's? Also anyone needing a set of snow tires. 245/45/r19's pm me. Pirelli SuttoZero Serie II Runflats.

Lots of people run 19s so as long as the offsets work, its up to you. You'll likely notice a difference in comfort going from 17 to 19 but it comes down to personal preference.

I personally wouldn't go that big, but in terms of looks, those don't look bad.

Wow he just threw them away?! Good thing you picked them up! I actually really like them. 19x8 will be fine as long as the offset is correct. I really like the style
