    Hi Matt, I have moved this thread to the correct forum section for you

    Can you post up a picture of the wheels and clearance you have at the moment please

    http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...ures-or-t2682/

    I think you should be okay but the rear arches that are triple skinned may need rolling to enable you to take passengers in the rear.

    The lower you go on the back the more the top of the wheel will lean in towards the car. This often gives the clearance required.

    The offset of the wheel plays a huge part in answering this question correctly

    Cheers for that. I havent got the wheels yet. Ive just ordered them.
    Other people said i need to have it lowered but from pics of other 330ci they look ok.
    Im going to see how it looks first and then see if she needs to come down a bit.

    Cheers again for your response

    Ideally it is better to lower the car to the desired height and then choose a wheel that fits correctly.

    You wouldn't have to lower the car 40mm. There are loads of manufacturers that do all types of drop Ordinarily when a car has larger wheels put on it looks like it's on stilts, hence the reason someone suggested to lower it

    Thanks again,

    The reason i wanted to lower the car was because i was away to put on bigger wheels and it was just to take the edge of it. But i think 40mm would be an over kill because the car is on 18" at the mo so 19" wheels shouldnt make that much of a difference should it.

    Cheers again for you help.
