Anyone running 19"

Hi

I am about to order my wheels, I wanted to know if anyone is running 19" aftermarket wheels like AGV, forgestars ect....

I am about to get 20" but I worry about bigger wheels with less rubber

If you have 19's please post pictures and your thoughts

TIA

I switched out my stock 17" wheels for 19s and also went with non Run Flats. Overall, the ride didn't change much at all. Run Flats tend to ride a little rougher than non-Run Flats, which balances off going with tires with a lower aspect ratio.
With that said, be prepared that potholes will more easily damage wheels when you run the low profile tires.

Staggered 19" is best. IM running breton with 245 35 275 30. Perfect sp far. 20" won't get any extra performance. Slightly more grip maybe. But it's not worth it.
