Well as I quickly found out rims are alot harder to come by on a TT as opposed to my NA. Bayz(Zack) bought my 18" Modas last week so I started shopping around. I wanted SSR's but on a commuter $3K would not be to smart on California roads:( So I shopped and shopped and decided to get a new set of Moda R6's but this time I went 19*9 w/245*35*19 Bridgestone Potenza's I'm curious how many of us have 19"s on our cars. and what kind

There are a few people with 19s. Matt (the one with the 19" AVS model 5s) has 19" rims. They look good but the price of the tires made me choose 18s.

19's look ok unless they are the 5 star design. Then they look to big.

matt's look good because they fill the gap but don't look to BIG. Plus he has a drop.

Someone on here has some 5 star design on a 99 or 99 look a like and it looks like his car is raised.

I did the math before I bought them and the wheels are only .4" bigger with the new tires. Heres what I went from
18*8.8 w/245*40*18
19*9 w/245*35*19
I'll have them on by tonight going to Americas tire to have them mount the tires on the rims and when I get home my Stealth will be on 19"S:D

Dominick is the one who posted all the info about making the 19"s fit. I had to order wheels for a Lexus ES400 and center rings for a 92 3KGT. Test fitted them last night and they fit perfect. Dominick also has a nice NA who has them on a TT

Hey Teddy

Keep an eye on those American Tire Co. people. They double torqued my lugs and it snapped off three wheel studs. I never got a dime out of them to fix my car. Just a heads up though i'm sure it was just my usual bad luck.

Sounds like what happened to me at Town Fair tire. They installed the wrong lug nuts and snapped off 4 of my studs. My car would shake like crazy over speeds of 50 mph. The wheels were loose due to the improper lugs.:eek: Luckily they ordered me the correct lugs and overnited them and fixed my wheel studs for free.
