Your going to loose a lot buy going larger. Plus there isn't many if any tires that are going to be good enough for such a high performance car. U might find some good for rain or all season. A lot of truck tires are available and then you have to make sure its 28" tall so the vdc doesn't act up... Not to mention you get a more harsh ride, heavier rims and a possible gearing change for slower performance and worse gas mileage.



But these issues are my opinion based on my findings.

Well the only advantage is looks. But looks are a matter of opinion. A larger rim does look better but a lot of lager rims are way to ghetto in my own opinion. R35 is a high performance car that was made for the race track. Each owner can do what they want so don't get me wrong. It just doesn't make sense to me... But others its the world to look good in the latest and greatest.

I plan to go to 19's also this summer. I have the winter package with A/S tires. It will handle better and ride smoother and I may use a hybrid R compound like Nitto. I will not use run-flats except in the winter. Will
