Question Going up from a 9x19 wheel to a 9.5x19 worth it?

Is there any real benefit from upgrading from a 9x19 to a 9.5x19 wheel?

currently I have 19x9 in front and 19x10 in rear, the rear needs the 10 for all the traction u can get for these cars, but i would like 9.5 in front, i like the look of a wider tire up frunt too

If you're keeping the same tire sizes you will see no performance benefit u less you're getting lighter wheels.

If you like the looks of the wider wheels more then you should upgrade, but have a wider wheel won't do anything for you by itself

I just put on 9.5s all around with 275/40s and don't notice much of a difference. Probably will grip a little better. Haven't really paced the car though.
