do 19's mess anything up? like speedometer, does it clock more or less miles on your car. etc. if 19x8's do ANYTHING, even change the ride quality, please post.
thanks

i just got my 19x8s last week.. and here are my observations...

- more tire noise
- ride seems more stiff
- accelleration seems slower
- makes you more paranoid when parking somewhere you are unfamiliar with
- makes you more nervous when you parallel park

Re: Tires

As long as the tire size is correct there will be no problems with the speedo.
and to make the speedo correct with 19's...

I believe the tire size should be 225.35.19 correct?? that should match the stock diameter, correct?

19's will make the ride harsh.
19's will make you paranoid
19's will have more road noise (due to low profile 35 series tires)


but best of all..


19's will look badass on the ride. 8)

you'll put fewer miles on your car w. 19's.........ie, you'll make fewer rotations going the same distance.....acceleration will be slower........you'll be going faster than what it reads on your speedo........but all of these things are probably negliable..........
