19" on 159

Anyone got 19" AR 10 spoke factory wheels with standard damper set-up?

Wondering how the ride will be - will expect to be a bit firmer, but any feed back will be helpful.

Re: 19" on 159

tyre choice can make a difference as i found out. the GT came with bridgestone RE050 225/45/17; changing to toyo proxes4 225/35/19 (all else kept the same), ride quality was less harsh! less 'crash' and 'thud' over ridges and potholes, yet better handling/turn-in. only compromise was roadnoise - louder with the toyo's due to different tread pattern.

knowing you, the coilovers will be an early upgrade, so it won't matter. :P

The new Ti will have 19"'s as standard according to the latest feel mag. Get to Motorexpo at Canary Wharf this week and have a look at it (plus the 8C)
