Was just wondering if anyone out there had 19's on there IS? How is the ride? Any Fender problems?

I had 19" rims for a couple of weeks until I noticed that they didn't look very fly. Trust me, don't waste your money on 19's and go straight for 21's with ultra-low profile tires... you'll never go back. I think it's really what the designers had in mind for the IS (they look SO GOOD), but they just backed out at the last minute. Also, be sure to get a dual exhaust with tips that are at least 12" in diameter... they make the car DA BOMB BABY BOMB BABY! Don't forget lots of stickers.
haha. I almost believed that last post for a second. I think 18" are really going to be the largest size for this car. You just won't be able to get any decent stock-size-matching tires in 19".

HaHA funny Nasty Nate, im the squirrel master
Go to the library and find the recent Road and Track (within the last year) or Car and Driver that did a test of 17, 18 and 19 inch wheels. Usually the 17 performed the best and sometimes the 18. The 19" never increased performance, especially considering the cost. I would go "plus one" at the most (18") or just get a 17" with another 1/2 inch of width.
