E91 Wheels advise

Will 19" rims make the ride too bumpy for HK road conditions? and hamper performance since mine is only a 323iA. Or just stick to 18" for a balance of visual + handling/ride comfort?

Many thanks!

How you felt on yr current 18" set up?? Acceptable or little bumpy?? If answer is little bumpy, changing 19" effect with very bumpy feeling.....Also, yr suspension set up is another key factor for yr ride quality when performance wise is definitely impact w/ a set of 19' wheels on yr 323 E91!!

Thanks 335 Freak! I figured as much, pity HK roads are quite poor quality in some areas. But damn a set of 19" Breytons would look sweet...

19s are definitely bumpier.

Sometimes on bad roads it makes me hate the car!

But you seriously can't go wrong with the looks and how it handles on open roads... so much fun.

Superdx, yeh i'm still running stock suspension and the 18s just don't fill the wheel gap enough. Although, I think even with 19s I'd still need to drop it a little.

Has anyone got the performance 313 19" in HK? the 313 with performance suspension to me seems the ideal combo and what I am hoping to get...
