Depends on the size tyres if the rolling radius is the same there won't be a problem :roll: :lol: :lol:

Not necessarily, wheel diametre is larger however the side wall of the 19's should be smaller therefore the total differance is negligible.

This calculator will help

i did search. and if people used relevant thread subjects i migh have found somthing. yeah cheers for the info, i knew if the rolling diameter was the same there would be no problem i was looking for specific information on if people with 19's found there to be a difference in rolling diameter and also if anyone with a ba has had their speedo adjusted. intercepter i suggest you stop reading posts if you arent interested in the thread title.
