    I'd say 18" or risk ruining the ride.

    Also the lower profile you go, the higher the risk of ruining your tyres and the alloys if you get a pot hole.

    On top of that the bigger the wheel then (in general) the heavier they are. This has a negative influence on handling.

    p.s. Whatever size you go for check out www.rochfordtyres.co.uk. Give them a call, speak to Dave and mention this forum and he'll sort you out. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Thanks for the quick reply. i thought the 19"s could affect the handling.

    Cheers
