i dont think they're ricer either.. but if it doesnt follow the traditional subaru unwritten rules i find that people bitch and moan about how they must of owned a civic or its ricer or some other negative opinion no one cares about.. everything you said i agree with.. thanks for contributing.. hopefully we can get some pics coming in for those who are interested to see the stance and fit of 19's..

I saw Myles' 15 wrx with prodrive 19"s and PSS tires at a local meet - he said it had yellows on it too. Looked perfect, sorry I didnt get a good pic... will do next time though!

EDIT: just found this link with some good info on specs and pics for some guys running 19s on the 15's: http://2015wrxstifitment.wordpress.com/19-inch-wheels/

you know what I meant. thick does not always have to mean sidewall height, it can also mean width in a different context. I will be much more precise in the future as to not confuse anyone else here.

Why, because there is an inch of fender gap...? And practical, real world ground clearance... ? And some suspension travel...

You're not the idiot who freaks out when his car scapes on a speed bump... or the guy who comes to a halt on the highway, oblivious to anyone behind him, because there is a rail crossing... or the loser who just can't risk scraping his front bumper coming out of a sloped driveway...

Are you...? Cars can be TOO LOW...! Like this...

Default Vossen CVT 19x8.5 5x100 et45

looking amazing.. apparently I am too new to even post a thread but looking for a new home for my 19" Vossen CVT!



It's all in the title!

Selling my 4 Metallic Gloss Silver Vossen CVT 19x8.5 5x100 et45. I purchased the set from Tag Motorsports mid 2014 and have loved the ride and style of these.

I just purchased a new set of wheels that is why I am looking to sell these Vossens. They are in amazing condition, no dents, scrapes, chips, curbing, or markings.

Looking to get $1,700 for the set. Prefer local sale in San Diego but open to all interest.

Look forward to speaking with you please email [email protected] or text me 7605045984 name is Clayton.

255/35 would look/handle way better IMO... 235/35 19 is way too small

Lol that escalated quickly.

I think he's just saying that the jump to 19s from the stock 17s makes the car look higher off the ground. I don't think he was saying the car needed to be slammed, just that maybe the car could use a slight drop to tie the new setup together.

19s don't seem bad for these. I personally wouldn't go any higher than an 18 but 19s aren't outrageous on these cars, given the size of the car and fenders. I'd say 19s look much better on these than they do on the FRS/BRZs.
