looks a bit like my rims...with the wide lip.

I really like them but alot of folks here do not agree.
You might have seen this but take a look at the pole I recently put out there...

^ famous car.

I read your layout in European Car Magazine(?) a year ago.
Very nice.

the weight for 19" wheels on those isn't too bad @ 24 pounds.
Although I wonder how the ride quality on less than ideal roads
with rubber band tires is...

I've spoken about this before but without having a stock ride to compare it to I do not think it is all that harsh given the cars I've owned in the past(91 Nissan 300z and 89 Conquest).
I really love it in the corners where I have seen that others here speak about the 19s having no real world benefit over the 18s. I can only tell you that without track time to date I have pushed this car pretty hard in more than a few turns and it feels like there is no end to the grip.

or anyone who has made the change(Grizzly)
How different was the ride when you made the change from stock to 19s?

I actually like the ride better. I really have no choice now because the rear diffuser I run will be too low when I run 18's.

I have a brand new set of those Miro wheels in 19" for sale...if anyone is interested. The centers are black.

I also have a set of silver ones available as well.
