20's look better, but will put your speedo out more. 19's can take more of a hit aswell, like if you hit a pothole or something

19's on mine look small if u got big brakes. 20's fill the arch better but easy to trash a rim on crap roads. if it was me buying them i'd go 19's just cos thicker side walls. bit better ride and less likely to trash one

Ffs! if you can drive there is no reason you can't have big rims! Just stop hitting things! SIMPLE! The only damage my 18's have is from the wife :roll: and my brother-in-law! if it was just me no freakin' damage cause I don't hit things! - it aint hard!

easier said than done though... one day the road could be fine, the next it couldnt. It all depends on how the rta tackles the roads around youse. Mine got smashed on a pothole that wasnt there the day before. Only happened cause of all the trucks (more so than usual) round here lately, tore the road up, then there was a car infront and i couldnt move quick enough...Being in a capital city though, 20's should be all sweet, they do look better. But 19's are just safer

20's... anything else looks smallish on a b sries body... 19s are where it starts..
drive carefully and shouldnt have much drama.. i never have on several sets of 20's...
