I hate to piss on the party, in one way but please be careful with 19" ASA wheels. They are very soft when you don't have much sidewall around them. This happened with stock E46 sport suspension, 235/35/19 summer tires.

My original setup are 17's style 188 and not the sport upgrade wheels 18's style 189. I'm thinking of keeping it for the winters and put snow tires but if the price is right i'll just sell them.

Here's my setup:
17" Light-alloy wheels V-Spoke (style 188) with nexen 3000 performance tires (225/45/17 all around) with no more than 1000 miles on it.
The rims are in perfect condition. The wheel size is 17 x 8.0 all around non staggered.

Not sure if I should get rims first or the full Mtek kit before, then wheels latter on. what else you got planned for mods?



Got a set of chrome 20" 87's w/ tires for an X5 if anyone is interested FS.

hmm IMO i would get rims first, because the body kit would look nice but it would look funny with OEM rims.

my next mod would be CF wrap or the aluminum trim....i also really want to drop it but im still debating if i want to spend 1k - 2k.
