Default 19's or 20's

I can't decide whether I want 19" wheels or 20" wheels. I'm afraid the 20's will kill the ride and the weight will hurt performance. On the other hand, the 19" tire selection is lacking.
Thoughts???

Make your own 19.5s! Lol seriously though, I have 19s & want to go bigger. Maybe offset them like the Shelby's?

Mine weigh less then stock. And the ride aint that bad at all. But its all in what your lookin at looks, ride, tire size...Tire selection was the number one reason i went with 20.

Do you know what the stock rims weigh? The 20's I found are about 27 pounds each. The other set I like I can't find the weight on.

According to that then those wheels wouldn't cost me any weight least. I like those Godspeed wheels you have. I can't find the weight on thier website though. They look real nice. Thinking about how the stealth would look on my red car.

*edit* I found it. Just had to find the right website. I think I just found my wheels. http://www.cruizinconceptswholesale....MACHULTRALIGHT

Thanks. Their is quite a weight difference between my stock 19 and the godspeed 20. Some people have had some issues when dealing with cruzin concepts but I however have had no such bad luck. They cut me 400 off wheel and tire combo and when the tires where balanced a little off they located me a shop in my home town where I was taking leave from the military and got it taken care of for free. Absolutely love the wheels and the customer support was great as well.
