What size tires?

I have a pre LCI e90 and I am looking to upgrade to 18's or 19's. First off I am not sure which ones to upgrade to size wise. Any suggestions? I like the look of the m5 reps on ebay

http://www.ebay.com/itm/370925254446...T0%26ga4m%3DT2

If I were to get those what size tires would fit? The less money the better but I know with something like wheels and tires it is better to get quality.

Thank you!

Most likely those are very poorly made wheels. Remember, you get what you pay for. Being in the industry and have seen a lot of good and bad I have learned to not cheap out on wheels, tires or brakes.

Wheel sizes comes down to you. !8" wheels and tires will be lighter and cheaper and you will get a meatier tire look. However, 19" will give you a fuller wheel look and some think it looks cleaner. Comes down to preference. Either way a nice conservative set up is a 8.5 - 9" width front with a 9.5 - 10" rear with both mid to low 30 offsets.

If you need some help choosing a better quality set of wheels and tires let me know and I can help you out
