Do you notice a change between the stock wheels and your current ones? Also, are you rolling on rft's?

There is a pretty big difference. You feel a lot more stability and you have better grip with the increase in size (i went from stock 17s to 18s that were 1-2in wider) Changing lanes and taking corners/turns are even more fun. I can swerve around squirrel road kill doing 65 without a problem. No I am on potenza sport all-weather tires, which have worked well, even though the only have 1-2k miles on them so far. The ride is slightly rougher, especially on more rugged terrain (like a shitty road or brick road). Overall it rides smooth and quiet though. By far the best mod i have done, if i had to choose one thing to do it would be to put that wheel setup on my car.

Are those pictures with the wheels dirty or clean? I hear that matte black wheels look brown kinda when dirty.

In the pics they are clean, but I have never had that problem. sometimes after I will be like, hmm i wonder how dirty these are and swipe my finger, and holy ... but you cant really tell from looking at them. The Powder-coated matte black finish atleast

They are bit rougher one them than my stock 17's. I would definitely say that going through any rough patch on 19's is going to feel scary. I always steer way clear of holes, but there are good roads in my area so i dont have many problems.

I believe so but I bought them with smoke as well without noticing it. Im actually considering posting up a trade thread for regular black-lines because they are a bit dark imo

sorry mine are 18's but i meant because you were trying to decide between the two earlier, just trying to make the point that with my 18s they feel a bit harsher than stock but not terrible, however 19s would probably be even worse

I'm thinking about 18s. lol I have 16s now though. Theres quite a few manholes and potholes but nothing unavoidable. And I know these arent the absolute best wheels so Im just trying to figure out how well they would hold up.

Lol yeah its going to feel a lot better than when you upgrade. They may not be top-of-the-line but they sure do the job well, and they look great. I get compliments on them all the time and I often find myself sitting there just admiring them... lol

I'm gonna start looking into them more seriously if I dont have a new car too soon. Can you take a picture from farther away so I can admire the calipers from more of a full side view? Whatd you paint the hubs with?
