330i se + 18" 162 wheels without sports suspension?


i do not know if my late 2005 E90 330i SE has sports suspension or not, i made a quick search and it looks like almost all 330i SE's come with sports suspension.

my car is currently on the 158 17" wheels and i am thinking of changing to the 162 18" wheels.

do you think it will still look great even though it could be my car has no sports suspension please? as in will the 'wheel arch gap' increase with the 18"?

the overall rim diameter between my current wheels and the 18" 162's is as per below:

front: 634.23mm vs 637.03mm
rear: 634.23mm vs 635.50mm

what do you think please?

The rolling radius will be virtually identical. The differences are less than 1%. It will make no difference.
