    pic request - 18's vs 19's

    Hello all. Right well i ahve found the wheels i want even though i dont have the car yet

    but they are pretty rare. i found them in 18" but wanted 19.

    was hoping i can see some pics of 18's and 19's side on so i can decide whether to just go for it now while i can

    you would be better posting a pic as rim size can looking different depending on style

    eg 18" with a lip would look worse than 19

    19 imo

    they are not that rare you know, ive actually seen a red A3 sporting these rims, think hes a mate of boydies, and they are common on the MK4 golfs.

    and with them being replicas I would be very wary of how they would cope on britains winter roads espeically with that polished lip.
