Question Montego E90: 18" or 19"? and which color wheels?

I'm undecided as to whether I want 18" or 19" wheels. I live in NJ and PA so our roads here are not the greatest which is why I'm leaning to getting the 18" wheels. Also, I'm looking for CSL reps, which color would look the best with Montego?

Do I need to worry about rubbing with the 19"s?

I think if you're extra careful when driving, you can get away with 19"s, they'll look great on your car. You won't rub if you run the standard fitment, i.e. 235-35-19 on 8.5Jx19 front & 265-35-19 on 9.5Jx19 rear. Silver CSLs are classic & would look good on your Montego E90.

I think gunmetal looks the best on Montego.
