Official E46. Official 19" wheels

Fits the criteria quite fine
Because he hasn't lowered it and probably doesn't know if it'll rub when lowered?

So if someone who doesn't know that it's photoshopped sees it will think they can do that.

Just my opinion though.

what do you guys think of 19x8.5 et 35 all around on a sedan. A pretty low sedan. Would there be rubbing? What tire sizes should I consider?

That should fit just fine. 225/35-19 should work.

That's exactly what I run with 235/35/19 all around, lowered on coilovers and no rubbing.

How do I know that guy is correct? I was merely asking for another person to second his opinion on what tire size would be good.

I don't know him, his answer does seem correct, but if I were making a big decision I wouldn't make a decision over one opinion....




Alec seconded his answer though in a pm, thanks.
