Sorry, but every set of 20's I've seen on a GA just looks too big. Looks like a match box car... wheels too big, body too small.

How does your car ride with the 19s? And is it lowered at all? I'm lowering my car with the eibachs/kybs from PFYC and I've been debating on 18s or 19s but I like to drive fast sometimes and dunno if 19s are too big of a wheel to drive fast on with the drop which I believe is 1.25".

It rides fine, and yes it was lowered with H&R springs in this picture.

Ok, cool, the only bad thing is that the rotors look rediculously small with 19s, I have the same rotors and they're kinda small looking on my factory 16s IMO . I'll wait on rims after I get more opinions from others...
Btw your GA is one of the best looking ones I've seen so far, very clean, simple yet badass look

I think 18s, with beefy enough looking sidewall, is perfect for the GA, Like street_fire has, its an 18" rim with decent enough looking sidewall to where the rim doesn't look to big for the tire

18s if you are lowered and 20s if bagged. I think 19s will work both ways but up here in canada 19" tires are the most expencive out of all three sizes.

mine on 18s and bags. I have 20s now
