Anyone have 18's or 19's on stock xi suspension?

I'm still on the fence about lowering my car as I'm pretty happy with the way the stock suspension rides. I currently have the 17's and want to get at least 18's but I'm wondering how it'll look on stock height. I know 18's are an option and so are 19's from BMW but want to see what some aftermarket wheels will look like. If anyone can post some examples that'll be great.

^ I think he was looking for stock suspension. Here's my winter and summer setup before the drop. Winters are 189s, 18" with Nokian rubber, and Summers are VMR CSLs on Goodyear F1 rubber (since replaced).





Here she is now with the new suspension

I have 189's on my E91 xdrive, looks pretty good. I'll find a pic.

I'm thinking of lowering it though. There's like *no* info on what eibach setup to use for a wagon with xDrive though. Considering the E93 Eibach 2099.140 springs.

No rub. I went with 4 x oem FRONT M3 rim (219's) because I wanted a square winter tire setup (235 all around).

It doesn't look bad on stock height because of the beefy-ness of the winter tread and tire.

Seriously ?...if the wheel gap isn't big enough for you, then maybe the huge ugly x drive badge should give it away..
