    18's look too small? 19's will be a poor ride. I think 18's are the best balance, but 19's do look sick.

    I was only talking in terms of looks. If I want best performance (while maintaining some semblance of good looks), I'm going with 17s.

    I have 18s on the ZHP. Stock. But they are heavy. And they do not help performance.

    On the 335, which isn't stock, I have 19s. They're also on the heavier side. Also not optimal for performance.

    But if I was going for performance, primarily, I'd be going to smaller sized wheels.

    I'm not going for performance, though, so the bigger wheels give me the look I'm going for.

    I think that 19s fill out the car more nicely. It's just a preference.

    I think 18s are fine, though. Heck, the E39 M5 comes stock with 18s. That looked perfectly fine. But 19s are the win for me.

    The problem with 19's is that they leave almost no sidewall. Pothole? Say goodbye to your rim(s).

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    I've been rolling 19s for ten years. Never personally bent a wheel. But it's a video game with the wheels when it comes to driving. No lie.

    Yeah, I have most of the roads I drive memorized for where the potholes and dips are.


    Lotsa zig-zagging
