    Default Maybe changing my wheels

    I've been thinking about changing my wheels, I currently have 19" Irmscher GT Stars fitted with 235/35/19's But as has been mentioned on here the ride is a bit harsh, It doesn't bother me that much TBH as i'm used to it, and most of my previous cars have always had sports susension, but whenever I have a passenger in the car they always mention how hard the ride is, so maybe I should change them and go for the 18" VXR's..

    If i do decide to buy the new wheels can anyone recommend me a good make of 235/40/18 tyre? If i went for the 225/45R18" (which seems to be the standard VX size for the VXR 18") there seems to be a difference of 13mm in overal size compared to the factory fitted 19's I Ordered my car with, whereas the 235/40/18 only has a difference of 2mm.. (but obviously more sidewall than the 235/35/19's!)
    So I think it may be best to stick with the 235/40/18's so I keep the speedo accurate..

    here you go mate, used a quick table to see how much speed difference you'd get over your standard factory size.

    Don't do Charts!! I used this, a lot easier!

    I may keep them, But I quite like the VXR wheels, especially the newer diamond cut ones..
