any bigger than 18's and you will definately find problems - you will start sacrificing major ride quality, you will have problems with clearing the footwells, also, the larger the rim, the more likely you will have problems with flat and popped tires...my .02

Dubs, now those are rims. I like those gold numbers that continue to spin after you stop. I thing they were about 50G's for a set of 4.

like i said earlier you guys, these are goin to be for shows only...i'll have a set of lightweight 15's for racing, and ill roll on my stock rims any other time...besides for tire wear, i virtually only drive on the freeway and the road is in good shape...

come on 19's don't always cause puke sometimes it can be pretty eek at least i think so

of course that is only for show which is what you want right. so you can have 19's on showday and 15's on race day.
