    Bimmer, mate, bimmer. Beemers are the motorcycles. ;)


    Tire Rack lists 18's as the largest for your vehicle. I don't know if you could go larger than that. My brother had an E39 that he put 19's on and after a few days, his $4000 rims were bent beyond belief. You might want to be wary of putting such large rims on if you live in a city or travel to a city at any time.

    He sold his car a while back. He hasn't used it for 2 years so it got sold due to financial difficulty.

    15" is OE. 16" is ugly. 17" is comfortable. 18" is the max on the E34.
