    19s look way too big on an E36.

    They have a 5 series offset so would require arch rolling and stretched tyres......See Devils thread on fitting his throwing stars...,and don't mind the comment above cause they would look sweet I have seen 20" on an E36 and looked the dogs danglies

    Right I have looked into it for you @Wu11ie and you would need to do as follows...

    Roll Arches!!
    Tyre size - 215/35/18
    Camber - Neg to a min of 2.5 (Front & Rear) - You may need to get more!
    Coilovers to aid the ride up and stiff it up so you dont bounce the tyre in the arch...

    So it will cost a fair amount of that hard worked for money! Also it is trial and error...

    Does that Help Wu11ie? Ignore everyone else its your car...
