    hey i heard that 19's slow your car down? is that true? because i was thinking of putting 19's they seem perfect becuase i think 18's are a little too small and 20's to big. i think that 19's are perfect! but do they slow you down?

    All depends upon the wieght of the tire/wheel assembly. Usually bigger wheels = lots more wieght, but some are actually lighter wieght, depends on how the wheel is made. Heavier = worse braking/accellerating/handling too.

    Looks good, man. Very sharp.

    Is your ABS affected at all with the different tire sizes? I checked the Nitto web site and your rears are almost 3/4" taller than the fronts.

    shouldnt be...height of the tire is identical at 35...and on a 19" rim They should be sitting the same.

    As well as the weight deal, it also has the same effect as changing the gear ratio in the rear end. The bigger the tire, the higher your top speed and the better your gas mileage is on the highway. The smaller the tire the slower your top speed, lower highway has mileage, but it will accelerate harder like if you put a higher ratio gear in the rear end.

    i think they are too big... they would maybe look a tad smaller if ur car was lowered, but i think 19in is too big especially when its chrome that makes them stand out

    they just seem a little too "bling" for me.
    dont worry, u got a nice car and im not flamin u. its about what u like, thats just my opinion

    +1 on lowering it. It would make it look alot better.
    It might be a little work but it would definately be worth it.

    Oops, you mean 25. I went out and measured my stock size 2754017s and they are almost 24.5 inches tall. If they were really 35 inches tall I would still be laughing at how stupid it looks!

    I didnt mean 35"... The tire size is 35 (275/35/19) That means the measurement from the rim to the tread for that tire is 35. which is the same as the 245/35/19 tire.

    the 35 is just the ratio. it is 35% of the width. so with two different widths you have two different heights.
