What size wheels?

I have decided to get MRR GT5 19 inch wheels. Can someone tell me the difference between 19 by 9.5 wheels and 19 by 8 I'm keeping my original p245/45 zr 19 tires to keep costs down

8.5 to 9.5 is a one inch difference

Yes it's one inch, but how does the same tire fit two different sized wheels?

Some might fit stretched some might fit snug. It's like of you're a size L but you feel like wearing a S, it's gonna look stretched as opposed to fitted

Some tire sizes are made to width range. Like the minimum with and max. My front BFGs 255/40/17 have minimal sidewal stretch on my 9 wide, they almost look like the **crappy** Primewell 275/40/17 i have on the rear with is 9 wide. You should check the max with of your specific tire brand and size to see if your stretching your tire on that 9.5.

Those are 19s? They look small compared to the over all size of the car. Dont get me wrong, they are some nice shoes, just a size to small. Just an honest opinion

Yes, they might seem small. It has been suggested that I lower the car. I have to look at the cost.
