I personally wouldn't have done it myself, but the dealership through the wheels and springs on for free when I said I wanted the car stock, so I am pretty happy with it. The only downside is that the car rides super stiff now, so I might have to get a new suspension setup.

But a 19" wheel should just have a thinner walled tire so the outer diameter remains the same so it should not have any effect on the gap. Replacement tires would cost a fortune.

They do... I'm on 265/30/ZR19 tires. It's 800 bucks for decent all-weather tires. But the amount of grip the summers have is definitely intense.

10" wide wheels maybe?


That photoshop reminds me of that GM/Saturn EV1 electric car from 20 years ago or so.

I myself was reminded of the first-gen Honda Insight:

Finding a setup to deal with 10 in wheels my be tough! I highly recommend you go larger than that.

Be careful posting shit like this. Not everyone realizes that it was meant as a joke; that is how the stupid camber thing got started.

I was going to respond that there is no way this would become a fad but then thought better of it. We should see the threads start up any moment now. The battles between the stance and mini wheel crowd would be fun. Wonder if the mini guys would still call it "fitment" though?

LOL that is what I figured.
To go that size you are going to have to start getting into body kits and major suspension work so you may want to do a pile more research into just what all is involved before making up your mind.
