Are 19" too big?

On the verge of getting rims. Debating whether to get 18s or 19s. Do 19s look too big on my car? Does anyone have any pics of their car with 19's?

for show, they look perfect; performance wise, its noticeably sluggish compared to ltw 18's or 17's(from my experience).

personally, Ill be going back to 18's next year (ccw's)

While I agree with Michel, if you car is a daily driven street car you won't have any complaints with the 19s. If you track/auto-x then grab a dedicated set of 18s or 17s for that purpose. It's much cheaper in the long run in terms of tire replacement costs.

It's strictly for everyday driving. No itentions on taking taking it to the track.

How much power do the 19s rob in comparason to 18s?

Hey dbworld4k, are those 19s on your ride?

Yes, they are 19s. Click my sig pic for a thread with more pictures. You might notice a slight decrease in acceleration from a stop, but hardly any; and this is if you are HIGHLY critical and pay some serious attention lol. It is absolutely negligible in my opinion.

^oh don't listen to dbworld4k he's just a hard parker

jk

I'm running a heavier setup than dbworld4k since my rims are reps (heavier than his Volks were) and runnning 265's in the rear, 235 fronts; this is why i found such a big difference. but yea, for daily driving, 19's are the way to go.
