Pretty sure you need major fender mods for 19s. Why not 18s with adjustable coilovers. A lot of the DTM look you want is all in the ride height. Hey id like the 19" superwide magnesium centerlock DTM, stiff lowered coilover for the track and the budget to go with it but its not really practical on the street for an e30 M3. plenty of e36s are tricked with 20" these days. yeesh.

Coilovers arent cheap if you do it right. Check out ground control they are a going favorite.

With out spacers?? and with out any heavy mods
to the wheel wells. Also whats a typical cost
for coil-overs for the E30 M3. I used to own
a 95 M3, but had to sell it to buy a house.
But now I found a nice E30 M3 for sale I'm
thinking of buying. The car has some right
side front end damage from a fender bender,
but nothing major, no frame damge per my
