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

    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

    the only way i can get them in 19's though will cost me about an extra £400 as it would eb from the states and without tyres.

    thats i want pics of 18's vs 19's to compare sizes :)

    i can get these wheels in 18" for about £620 with brand new budget tyres.

    I've got an S line with 18's and it rides ok...will 19's ruin it? I'm not a complete old man but i don't want it to feel like a skateboard...

    19s will make the ride a bit more harsh but i have had my 19s on the car for 18/19 months and lowered - love it!

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