    Default 19" cause steering vibrate?

    Hey everyone,

    Just wondering has many people fitted 19" Alloys to their sri and then notice steering vibrate as their are more feedback/contact with the road.

    Cheers.

    ive had two vecs with 19" alloys on and none of them gave vibration through steering wheel, is it a wobble or a vibrate?

    Certainly seems to be an issue on here where 19" cause more trouble than they are worth. TBH when your looking at 30/35 series tyres that have no give whatsoever and roads as bad as we have in the UK seems the wheel takes the brunt of the punishment with buckling and cracking.

    Thanks everyone, i don't have the wheels yet, but just wondering if it was an issue with 19s as i read somewhere people had trouble with them, or should i take some 18s instead.
