good advice until you realize that not everyone is driving on glass smooth roads and if you go to track anything above 18 is a bit too much on our cars.

OR

are you nuts? go for 20s, 19s are so yesterday.

I know that 19'' looks great but... I use my car for riding, not only for watching ;-)

Probably better to stick with stock wheels at this size IMO.

Offset: 40mm
Tire: 235/40R18 Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport

Rear
18X9.5 ET45 VMR Hyperblack CSL Reps
Offset: 35mm w/ H&R 10mm Spacers
Tire: 255/35R18 Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport

IMO 18's are more suitable to daily driving i don't care what people say about 19's being comfortable thats complete BS your running a low profile tire regardless of them bing non rft. When i had my 19's i felt every stupid rock on the road and 3 months later a rim cracked. I will agree 19's look good and all but for me I don't think I'll ever get 19's again not unless i move somewhere with nice road at least.
