Wheel pics?

I'm debating between 18's or 19's on my e90 awd. Gonna try the tire and wheel setup first before I drop it with shocks and springs. Curious on any thoughts if 19 would look bad. They are 8.5 front and 9.5 rear. Or if anyone happens to have pics of this set up. Although it's awd it does have the sport package. Not sure if it makes a difference in height with the stock setup.

The sport package suspension does drop it a little bit but it's minimal. And xdrive suspension rides higher by default so honestly it's not a huge difference at all imo. I've seen pre-lci's run 18's and 19's on stock xi suspension and both look good imo. Some people will say that 19's on stock awd suspension looks horrible, but you can decide for yourself.

check this thread for pics. Page 2, near the bottom has pics of both 18" and 19" setups on pre-lci e90 xi's with stock suspension.
