    Question 18" or 19" that is the question!

    Hey guys, I am gonna buy some new wheels but I dunno what size to get, do the 19s spoil the ride tooooooo much? I reli like the vxr alloys but donít want to be shaken to bits on every bump lol. Do the replica 18s look to small and stupid on a vec? Any pics of them on a black sri would be bonus. Aaron.

    Everyone on here with 19's seem to be fine with the ride. Bigger the better I say, get some 19's ordered!

    I went from 17" SRi wheels to 19" flakes and not much difference at all. I have standard SRi suspension etc.

    I think if you start lowering 30/40 mil etc its going to make your ride much firmer and jumpy.

    Don't get me wrong if you hit a pothole and there are plenty about, you feel it but overall a very nice ride with 19's
