dropped on 189 style rims

Hey does anyone have their 328 or 335 coupe dropped on 189s in nyc ?

Im thinking about trashing my rf and getting some new tires . What would be a nice wide tire for this particular rim ?


If so can you post some pics please ?

Also do you wash your car yourself or take it to a hand car wash ?

I have a sedan 335 dropped on 189s wrapped with conti DWS's... Tires are amazing in the rain, by far the best I've ever used. Sidewalls are soft and not the greatest for cornering though. I wonder how they will hold up in the snow though...
