    I don't know if it makes a difference. N8s running 19s and his car is practically a snow plough but then again I may be wrong

    Not quite sure what the question is here. You can lower the however much you want? You'll be limited more by ofsets & width than rim size. You'll sit slightly lower on 18's when slammed if thats what your asking.

    Easiest way N8 is just to create a sticky thread with the E.T's, 18's and 19's and tyre profiles depending on the E.T.
