Cool To everyone who has 19 inch rims

How do you find your ride quality? Do you wish you still had 17 inches? I want to get 19 inch PG2's at 19x8.5 up front and 19.X9.0 in the rear, will I have to roll my fenders? Please tell me everything I need to know about 19 inch rims.

I just put on my 19x8,19x9r Racing dynamics RS2's, and the ride quality is not different at all (very negligable). You get a different feel for the car (feels more secure, but a little heavier), but the ride is still smooth as the oem 17's

The noise of the pavement will depend on the tires you put on. I put some Yoko AVS sports, and they look hella aggresive, but have just a tad bit more road noise than the Conti's...

Hope that helps!

When I got my wheels on I was suprised. There were little roadnoise (Yokos AVS). I had been driving for several months on my wintertires (195/65/15). and they are quiet.
The only thing that was a little bad, the car was hard to drive straight without adjusting the steering. But now I dont feel that. Im used to it.
