depends man, i got 18"s and my tyres are $350 a piece, but i agree that tyres for 19"s are more expensive. i had enough trouble fitting the 18's - had to get the guards rolled and panhard rod bushes replaced.

Yeah my guards are already rolled and an adjustable panhard rod on its way too. I know 245's will be a no no, but hoping 19" 235's still fit underneath.

Im not looking forward to having to replace the tyres, but thats a long way down the track at the moment...

But thats the main issue holding me back at the moment. I want to go in and put a deposit down next week on the wheels I want, XHP Sabers... But 19" are another $400 more which im happy to pay but its tyre prices also that are swaying my decision... If 18's look big enough for me, thats what I will stick to...but at the moment they look a tad small from what I've seen on cars with kits like mine. They look big on VN's like 89vncommy's but with my bulky kit..

id say to just go 18"...the price in rubber jumps about $400+ from 18" to 19", its just not worth it, and you'll be up for a hefty tyre bill each time you need to replace them in the future.
