Need some help

Hey guys i just recently leased a 2012 335xi msport coupe alpine white, coral red.
The rims that came on the car are 17 inch m sport rims. Im looking to stay with stock suspension, which would look better 18 or 19inch rims if im I am not lowering the car?

Thanks for all the help!

if it's an E92, 19's look best. In this case though, aesthetic compromises ride comfort if your local roads aren't that great. 18's are still a huge upgrade from 17's and still look pretty good (esp the 313's). If you go 19's make sure you avoid RFTs altogether!

I can also sell you a set of OEM 19" 230's for pretty cheap. See my sig.

I'm not lowered and I have 19's I don't think it looks bad at all. I think with a thicker sidewall from 18's it would look more like a 4x4
