Pat is right. (And is our "Body/Parts Guru") He has proven himself to be a walking EncyclopediaBonnevillia. The concept had 19'*. Production came down to 18/235/50. My Guess would be Tire Cost and Ride/Comfort reasons.

He just had the sizes out of order.

Well, I looked all over and from the looks of it, those wheels only come in 18'* and 20'*. Not worth the effort and money to stay with 18'*, especially as they are close to the stock wheels. And I'd rather not go with 20'*...so for right now, I'm going to stay with stock.

As much as I wanted to roll around on the floor laughing I couldn't, I was right in the middle of Marketing class

18 to 20s will save you money in the long run. The tires are cheaper, by about $50 a tire depending on what kind you get.

Also the ride isn't that bad since our suspensions are so awesome.

19'* here too...
http://www.1010tires.com/wheel.asp?w...wheelmodel=KV5
I was always thought they were mille miglia evo5'* but those Sport Edition one'* look the same.
I used to have the evo5'*...
The concept had 19'* for sure I remember reading the tire size at the auto show.
