20" Wheels to 19"?

So, had to replace the rear tires on my car this week. Decided to have the tire shop put tpms back in the wheels (previous owner removed them). In doing so, the shop damaged my rims and has cut me a check to replace them. The ones that I want to replace them with only come in 19s. Do you think it'll look drastically different? I know it's only 1", but figured I would ask. I'm sure there are some that have gone down in size before. Also, if anyone is currently running 19s, can you post pics of your car?

The outside diameter of both tires is going to be virtually the same. No one will notice a difference. In my opinion it will be an improvement. I would say go down to 18" because of cost and availability. 19s cost more than 18s or 20s.

put both rear wheels at 18" if your fronts are at 20, and then run more sidewall

Yeah, Just buy fatter tires.

If your fronts are lets say 255/35ZR20 then the rears could be 285/40ZR19

or 45, Depending on how different it is. There's a calculator around here, You can calculate what size tire would be equivalent to the diameter of your old 20" tire.

Cool wheels! Don't be surprised if your car rides better or is more stable on bumpy roads. 20s aren't an option around me unless you are willing to drive really slow.

I got 245 in the front and 275 in the back. If I don't like how it looks, I'll change them.

Still not sure what the problem is. More sidewall in the back makes it look like you know what you're doing when you have a muscle/pony car.

No problems at all. I like the look of the 19s over the 20s.
