Curious about wheel size

Really like the look of 20" wheels .... but how much do they affect performance? I have 19" wheels ,3:31 gears, on a performance pck and really like how she accelerates. Do you think going up in wheel size would make enough difference to feel like going back to standard size gears??

I doubt going from 19 to 20 would be very noticeable. Hopefully someone with a little more knowledge chimes in

Curious about wheel size

It depends on how much the 20 in wheels weighs compared to the 19 in, but probably not a noticeable difference. Another big deciding factor is the tires, if you use performance summer tires or all season conventional tires...
So wheel weight and tire type are the questions that need answers...

Right now I have the OEM PP 19" wheels ( don't know what they weigh) but I'm guessing aftermarket 20" might be lighter. I was thinking the larger circumference would be the biggest factor...

Curious about wheel size

It will effect your turning radius, now to a certain degree depends on what tire you use, in terms of a OEM tire for the 20in or a lower profile...
Or possible rubbing, depending on the suspension...
But in all honesty I think you'll be ok...

When you mention comparing it to the performance that 3.31 gears provide, you imply that you are looking for the impact as the result of a change in tire diameter.
A change from 19" to 20" wheels does not affect the tire diameter.
Your existing tires are 255/40R19 (27" Dia) and your future tires could be 255/35R20 (27" dia) resulting in the same tire diameter or no impact on drive ratio change.
Just a change in appearance of tire profile.

Ahh, thanks Diehard. That's what I wasn't understanding/realizing ... you can adjust via tires.
