    I would buy those stockers from you if you want to sell them.

    sorry to thread jack but does rim and tire size really make much of a diff. when dealing with the car's power

    Larger diameter wheels will slow it's acceleration.
    Only get bigger rims if you just want it to look good.
    Get lower profile tires if you want it to perform better.

    well the car is quick enough as it is but I am a real estate agent not a race driver so I am not too worried about acceleration - the prie of the 19" tires warent a jump up to 20" (which are cheaper) but looks are important - I am looking for something a little on the deep dish side.

    I got mine for $56,000 because I got all the options

    Weight is obvious. But if you have two wheels of the SAME weight, the wheel with the larger diameter will slow the car down more than the smaller diameter wheel due to more rotational inertia on the larger wheel. This is high school physics I believe (inertia = mass * distanceFromAxis ^ 2). And going back to your weight argument, most larger diameter wheels will weigh more than their smaller diameter counterparts as a general rule of thumb. Of course there are manufacturers who specialize in light weight wheels of even large sizes, but as we well know, the average shopper will prioritize 'looks' first and thus the general larger-size-usually-means-more-weight holds true in most cases.

    HREs are not the end all be all of wheels. They're overpriced like a son of a bitch
