Id get 20's or 18's just because 19's are rare and the tires are too expensive..try ebay...or google it.

I've got 20's and no problems what-so-ever! I love them and they really compliment the LH body style! You can get some good deals on EBay or at WheelMax.com!

Cheapest rim and tire packages are the 16" choices by far. They are going to be a lot cheaper than the larger rims and look great on a trep.

Just remember with 20's you don't have much sidewall there... With the winter ravaged roads around here I got 18's (the thought of hiting a pothole and kissing over $500 goodbye was to much). Also my 18's don't affect the ride comfort much over the stock 16", 20's might be to stiff if ride is a consern.

I assume your looking to keep the same overall diameter by getter a tire with a thinner sidewall to go with the larger wheel?

i'd say go with the 18's if you do alot of driving, 20's if your all about the bling.

Here is a pic of my 18" eagle alloys.



As you can see there is a lot of fender gap (nothing to do with the rim really as tire diameter is same as stock) so I want to lower it a inch or two with new springs.

My god man!! Use your stock rims/tires for winters. In fact, get michelin x-ice tires on your stock 15 or 16 inch rims. Or some Nokians etc.
