the 19 doesn't make a huge difference in terms of looks. Opt for 20 if you are going to swap out.

The Msport 19" might cost more than aftermarket 20"... and the price for the 20" tries went cheaper lately.

Getting new wheels is never cheap.

You may regret not getting bigger, look wise it doesn't have a real striking effect.

19" and 20" tires have very little difference in terms of cost. Some brands even cost the same.

If you like OE style then the M sport rim is a good choice. But they weight more than most aftermarket rims. It's your choice. 20" is the minimum size for swapping, if I swap now I might even go for 21".

Try Wah Kee at Gloucester Road for the price of the M sport wheel.

why dont you check out classified, I see folks selling them for $1500 US or less, another couple hundred bucks for shipping to hk should save you more then half.

thanks for the advice, but anyway, buying these heavy stuff oversea makes me worry, what if the rim is not nice enough and have problem? shipping these stuff back is not worth.

I only had experience buying some items oversea.

anyway, thanks again for the advice

Some stuff at Kwok Wa is expensive, but they are reliable and no shady stuff but need to compare prices. Otherwise Wa Kee is also a good choice.

4xxxx for OEM 19" sounds right, but for that price can buy a set of 20" wheels.

But if you really like the look of OEM wheels and not care about the performance like RC, go for it.

I got the 351M and i am perfectly happy with it.

That's about the right price, depending on the tires....

Bro, are your referring me? My wheels are actually lighter than the OEM since they are flow formed. But the wider tires may suffer a bit on acceleration and fuel, not sure since I have not record them. Handling and cornering much better though.

$40K? Should get aftermarket IMO. Mine cost $30ish back then, may raise now.

Tires x 4 should cost $15K or so, ultra performance like PSS, Pzero.

You run 275 in the back wheels right?

If so the 351M runs the same setup so performance wise will still choose your wheel over the OEM wheels.

We don't have the Tire Pressure Monitor Sensor in the wheel like the ones in USA.

After swapping wheels or changing tires, just reset your flat tyre monitor and you are all set

255 front and 285 rear, sort of the same.
