19" on an e91 touring sport without lowering?

Hi all,

Can anyone give me help on the subject. I know there are a few posts on here about this without being specific to the m sport.
I have recently bought a 2006 320d m sport touring fitted with original 17" m sport alloys. I know the m sport sits lower than other models by 15mm. Is this drop enough to allow me to fit 18" or even 19" without the need for lowering?
Would really like to put some 19's on it but the village i stay in would be a nightmare if the car was lowered!
I saw some pics of gizies car on pistonheads and it looked stunning on both wheel sizes.

Any advice or pics would be appreciated.....

18 and 19" wheels are perfectly fine at stock sport height as long as you run the proper width and offset wheel paired along with the proper tire.

Here's our old shop car on 19" VMR VB3's in Sport height.

Looks great without the need to lower.

Forgot to ask in my initial post....

If your reading this and have an e91 sport with 19's at standard ride height. ..Any chance of a pic? Or even i could look at your garage pics. Reckon Im going to go down the 19" csl option and get pics uploaded to my garage.

Thanks again.

Hi thanks for the reply. Going to look at the 19's option fitted with my standard m sport suspension. Just need to find the right off set and size to ensure it fits nicely
