    Hi everyone
    So I've just bought myself a 2015 335d and was wondering what is the max size alloy I can put on it without having to mess about with the suspension.
    I was hoping for 19in but obviously don't want any rubbing on the arches.
    Has anyone got any experience with this.
    Thanks

    19" are an optional size. Many examples came from the factory with 19" fitted. There are OEM styles with the correct fitment out there, for the F30/31 models.

    There are no suspension issues if you use standard 19" sizes for the range, with the correct tyre combinations. It is only when you depart from OE sizing you may need to consider clearances.

    Hello and welcome.
    I ran OEM 19” wheels on my 2013 F30 with no problems, and have them on my 2017 F32, again no problems.
    Tyre choice is more likely to impact upon ride quality given possible run flats etc.

    tyre sizes for the car model can be found on the drivers door pillar. and your car should have a mix of 19 inch tyre sizes some staggered some square. going up in size should not be an issue it is normally going down in size that causes issues due to larger M Sport brake callipers and wheels not fitting over the blue brakes

    do you now if your current set up is staggered or square

    www.alloywheelsdirect.net/bmw_alloy_wheels/3_series_f30_alloys

    that will give an idea of wheel sizes available in F30 fitment

    I have the optional staggered 19 inch 403M wheels on my 330d and they work well, and look good.

    Sizes are 225/35 R19 front and 255/40 R19 rear. Plus I also have the uprated M Sport brakes (Blue callipers), which you may also have on your 335d.
