IMO... stick with the stock 19" rims and spend the money on lowering, spacers and a milltek... and keep the $1,000 change!

19" with lowering looks perfect (meaner and lower than with 20s) and won't rattle your fillings.

Good idea, although i'm still undecided on what to do.....to much choice and not enough money.

Thanks for the input, I do love the way your car looks with the lowering and spacers.

But two things:
Wheel weight is high on the stock rims, then add spacers to the mix.
Dymag’s are on the order of 15~ 18 lb each, huge weight savings.

Is the ride really that bad with 20's?

Some eye candy…

Yeh well I do, but I think its more about making the car that more individual to the owner than anything else.

On top of that everyone has different taste, for instance I quite like the ghetto bling look on "some" cars but others especially on this forum are the complete opposite.

So really go with what pleases you, at the end of the day not everyone is going to like your choice, but if you do then who cares.

If you get a 265/30/20 tire, the sidewall height is still over three inches and is only a fraction less than a 255/35/19. Ride will be close to the same as has been widely reported. The ride height with lowering springs will be a tad higher because of the rim diameter and for me this is a good thing. I don't think this car should be riding on its wheels.

The 19's with spacers looks nice, but not even close to a properly fitted forged 20" wheel.

9.5x20" Dymag's without a doubt. (265/30R20" tyres)
And wheel centre in body or darker grey color like exhaustvalance.

Thanks for the info on the ride quality. I totally agree with the fit, function and personalization that a nice set of wheels provide. Great looking S5, BTW!
