Upgrading Oem Rim Size
Posted 25 April 2012 - 06:03 PM
I have a question about upgrading your rims to a size bigger than what you currently have. For example, I'm interested in upgrading my 18" LS rim to the OEM 19" LS rim. Upgrading from 235/50-18 18" OEM 9 spoke to the 19" 5 spoke OEM 245/45-19.
Aside from looks, does this change the handling/comfort of the vehicle? How about gas mileage? I have found a decent slightly used set of the 19" 5spokes that I've always wanted. I've inquired with my Lexus dealer about tires and I'm thinking of going with Michelin Pilot A/S that they're offering. The dealer will also transfer my TPMS sensors to the 19" rim.
Just wanted some feedback about this! I know that I'm going just for looks and ease of cleaning my wheels but I was wondering if there's an effect (according to Physics). Thanks!
