Default 19s on a wagon

Anyone know of any 19s that will fit on a wagon? Any pics?

bleh i'm sure its been done and can be done but i think it would be a terrible looking, expensive, uncomfortable, and heavy setup.

Wagons can have rubbing issues with 17's, so find a shop that will do a test fit for you first.

It mostly depends on what offset, wheel width, and tire width you go with.

Was just thinking of big wheels and then no lowering so I get the look but don't lose ground clearance in the snow. The only 19s I've seen on the sedans won't work with the wagons offset hence problems in the rear.(ha ha)

If you can find a 19" rim with a with of 7.0 - 7.5", an offset in the 55-48 range, keep the outside tire circumference close to stock, and run 215 tires, you would be fine. I don't know if such a combo exists.
The wheels will probably be heavy, but if you want the look, more power to you.

Just looked at some numbers, a 215 35 19 tire would work fine if somebody makes one.

I'm sorry, but I'd HAVE to laugh at 19's on a wagon.....I mean that's a joke, right???

And where will you find a 'snow' tire in a 19" ?????

It's a wagon... didn't most covered wagons have really, really big wheels?

What, no photoshop of a covered wagon on monster chrome wheels?
He asked if it would work, not what my opinion was. My answer would have been very different if he wanted to know if I thought it was a good idea.

Thanks to dbrier, the only one who gave insiteful information. Uncle Scotty, these would not be used in winter,I would have a dedicated set for that. I just didnt want to lower the car to get a cool look then have no ground clearance, especially if i put a spolier on the front of the car. Also not all 19s are "bling". Will probaly seek another route though if I would have to use a 35 series tire. I've also considered coilovers but I think New York winters would be too harsh on the units themselves? Any input on that?

we have 19" g-games on our sti at work and it looks sick, but if you plan on doing anything other than mild driving, i would suggest going smaller...especially on a wagon.
