Hello AM folks, Hi Shane.
First of all my apologies if I opened a thread only for that; I'm sure there is plenty of other similar requests but when I did search it was like browsing the whole forum for how many there were...
So, in a close future (I need to wait to mount some engine parts I already ordered from you
) I have to change tires to my 2005 GT 'vert with stock 17" and I was planning to have bigger shoes/wheels
I really like the GT500 replica but I don't know what to choose between 18 and 19"
I know that bigger is better (except for headache and kidney stones) but I didn't find a good picture to see the difference.
On your website I saw the Customer pictures to see in real the effect but some of those are confusing; it seems someone posted a 19" on the 18" section (I saw the same pictures on forum with the tag 19") and instead of helping me it confused me more (for sure is not your fault, it's me that I'm weird)
So my considerations are:
I see the 18" and it seems a good size for my ride, and if I'm right, it was the same size for the Shelby 2009.
but some picture with the 18" has "chubby" tires so I was wondering what could be the real effect with the 255/45/18 you are proposing on the kit
I like the 19" look but I'm not sure if on my car it will be "too much" especially because I'm considering to lower it a little bit, 1.3"F/1.6"R
but at the same time, maybe I'm wrong, comparing the tires, 255/45/18 and 245/45/19, same model obviously, they don't have a huge price difference, so, putting a 18" to have a maintenance money save it could be useless.
I see a lot of pictures of coupe but I don't know why, the convertible has a different impact on the wheels decision.
do you have any suggestion about the 18 / 19, considering the car proportion and the tire cost difference? (unfortunately I commute a lot)
thank you in advance guys for your help
