hi, has anyone managed to get 19's on a 156 without mods?
I can't say I've had a problem. I've had 18s and 19s (with tyres) that are lighter than the factory combo (which are typically heavy). Handling and braking are certainly no issue for 'fast street' car. I've always found turn-in to be improved, with better feedback, using lower profile tyres.everyone always miss this point ............. rotational forces increase as well ie ....rim is further nearer circumference so your brakes will be less efficient. ive read loads that have bent wheels from being on 18's never mind 19's
those who gone back to 17's probably find car handles better and brakes better
