19 inch rims too big?

Just curious.. I don't plan on lowering the car after I install 19 inch wheels on this.. will this still scrape the fenders?

The five axis wheels.. Are they way heavier than the stock 17s?

If you're going to do 19's, reference the chart for whichever width you plan on getting:
http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=7535

Stock wheels are 7" +48, and there are numerous safe fitments on the chart to choose from.

I use this site to calculate wheel movement changes:
http://www.gtsparkplugs.com/WheelOffsetCalc.html

Though I personally wouldn't install 19's on it. Prefer 17 on a car this small, as I feel anything larger (18 is negotiable) overpowers it and makes the wheels the focal point when rather they should compliment the car.

Depends on the wheel. Anywhere from 18 to 34 pounds.

I have the Rays gram light 57xtreme's in 19's and I like them. They are 19x8.5 and 19x9.5. They weigh 21 and 22lbs so barely more then stock. I have built tons of cars and I can always tell a difference when going to a significantly heavier wheel. I don't feel any loss in power but I can obviously feel the difference in width.
