Question Need E90 wheel size advice!

Hi Guys

I'm a few minor decisions away from ordering my E90. One of them being rim and tyre dimensions. I've decided to go for the M sport suspensions - which I understand will give the car and overall 15 mm drop. I consider one of the following rims:

Style 269

Style CSL

I just cannot decide between 18" and 19" and also what tyre width to put on them. I want the car to look nice but still be comfortable to drive (Don't we all )

Could you please help me decide?
Some sample pictures would be awesome

Regards,
Torsten

269. CSL rims look out of place for this car.

How do you mean, out of place? Are the CSL rims too old-fashioned?
What about dimensions for the 269 - 18 or 19? which tires?

Regards.

Are you buying an e90 regular 3-series or M3? I ask b/c those style 269 are too narrow for e9x M3 fitment. Also, AFAIK there is no M-sport suspension option for an M3 unless you guys/gals have a special suspension option in Denmark I'm unaware of.

OIC, you're in the wrong forum. You'll have more responses if you post on e90post.com.

No need to apologize. I'm just trying to be helpful.
