Good stuff guys.

I'm still undecided at this point, but leaning towards 19's. The main reason is that there are many more wheels to choose from in that size. It's getting to the point that some...

Honest opinions from those with 19's plz

I'm really torn about whether to get 18 or 19 inch wheels. I put wheels on every car I buy and I always go at least plus 1.

Either of the above options should be fine. The key is to keep the rev's/mile very close to the same front to rear. A 1/4" difference in OD will translate into something like a 5-10 rev/mile...
