sup man your probably in queens right. the ride in the city isnt fun with 19s when you gotta jump around the pot holes and really ****ed up roads. i'd be scared to bend the rim. i dunno. i think i might get 18s. if you include price too that would drive me to the 18s. its all good tho. if you get 19s it would definately look pimp!

Im in the same boat over here in LI. I decided on getting some breytons (visions !) but im not sure if i should get 18s or 19s. the 19s cost like 40 bux more a rim which is nothing and the 19s look so much nicer.

Autobahn: have you been able to place any sort of deposit at the dealer yet for your e90?

BTW, be careful with 19's in NYC for sure. But, I do think that the e90 will need 19's to look great. Some 18" wheels already looked small on the e46 and since the e90 is even bigger, it will require larger wheels to look great.

Those breyton visions are real nice looking in person. In 19's they look big too bcuz the spokes come out all the way to the lip!

Woe is me, the biggest I can afford at this moment is 17" wheels :/ all cars (except 330 sport pack) come std with 16" (and the 325SP with 17") ((

why not just go with 20's?

Just kidding, I agree that 19's look best with the E90... I'm looking into getting 19" breyton spirits...

BTW, i know that the spirits come in black w/ polished lip... but tirerack.com won't let you put them on the e90, anyone know why?

I hate when tirerack does that, they force you to give them a car model that you're looking for and are reluctant to sell to you anything that's not a "recommended fitment". I understand why they do it, but it's still lame for those of us who know what does and does not fit. Anyways, if they give you a hard time ordering it, either find a model that has the same exact fitment you'll need (may be difficult), or tell them that you're ordering for someone and don't know the exact model of the car but that you were given the exact specs of the wheels to order.
