    19s or 20s ??????

    Forum Key Rings
    Hi guys
    Right I've lowered my tourer by a inch & a half to close that horrible gap between arch & tyres.
    Now I'm looking to upgrade my alloys , I've found a few sets of concaved wheels which should eliminate the need for spacers but can't decide on which size to go for....
    Any advice ???

    18" is the most functional and the best balance between handling, looks, kerbing resistance and pothole resistance.

    Ok a happy medium then ( as my wife says )
    Go for 19"
    Have you got any links to the alloys you are looking for ? Could be interesting to have a lookie
    I know it's a different car entirely but I got a set of 19" VXR and a set of 20mm spacers so give or take a bit I was running 20" so I could always step back down to just the 19" if wanted also if you go for 20" then just make sure the clearences are right for the wheel arch ( depending on how low you have set it )
    And the stance of the car was what I wanted
