Hi.
I have a 330d Convertible and am wanting to put a new set of wheels on and also lower it (if it rides too high).

Would you recommend just putting 18" wheels on and lowering it 40mm with Eibach or do you think I would be able to get away with putting 19"s on and also lowering it a touch?

On the E46 you can fit 20" wheels and lower:cool

On my E36 all I had to do when fitting 18" wheels and 225/40 18 tyres was roll the rear arches due to the offset being slightly out.

Since, I have had two sets of 19" wheels and my current set of 20" and lowered beyond 60mm and I have never had to carry out any further modifications:thumbsup

I think I'll go with 19's and lower with eibach springs.
How much of a job is rolling the arches?
Can any garage do it?

archenemy (google them)do a decent job can roll and or flare for a reasonable price they can also travel and do it at your location.

£80.00 inc vat and travel expenses to me he even treated and sealed the arches once rolled to protect the effected areas as the paint can sometimes crack when rolling.

I have just put 18s on my car and lowered it 45mm front 40 rear and had the rear arches rolled and its ace handling isnt affected either
They look the business :thumbsup are they genuine rims or replicas? Just what I'm after for mine, any idea on what the style is called?

Thanks

m3 csl rims will be replicas mate only way of putting oems on is if you have 2 sets of fronts as the m3 rears are the same offset as a 5 series so stick out the arches
