19's on coilovers. No compromise speedwise, braking or otherwise.

Oh ya, to the previous poster. Some folks like comedy specials :rolleyes:

Everyone to their own, the op asked for opinions so i put mine forward.

I just think that big wheels on the newbie do it no favours at all, throws it sky high in the air so you get a 4x4 stance and the wheels take over the whole car instead of adding to the overall picture. Whereas 18 or 19's fill the arches nicely and flow with the car's natural curves.

The dub on 22's is pretty sweet though. Here's a shot...and it does NO justice what so ever...seeing this car in person was AMAZING!!!


But he had to go through a lot of work to get it that way. Ask him about it...Severe. He'll tell you everything you need to know about big wheels. I knew these wheels were big, but did guess on 22. But it looks sweet and it handled the Tail of the Dragon well tooo!! :)

Side benefit--no worries about puncturing an oilpan.:rolleyes: and the front valence would easily clear a highway gator, and, ooooo, I bet the side rockers would sit over top of any curb...and I appreciate the good laugh I get every time I see it.:thup:

Severe's bug is one of those cars you have to see in person. It does look a little funny in pictures, but seeing it in Person driving the Dragon (where he was a few cars ahead of me) was awesome. It's a fantastic car and proves you CAN pull off 22" rims given the right rims.

Yes, to see his car in person is just amazing. I can't even tell you how many people wanted to steal his keys! lol Great car! It can be done, as long as your willing to put some work into it!

I know of a good set of 19 inch rims that look great on the VW New Beetle, they are black and have a glossy finish on them, only about 175 bucks each too, not a hubcap, full rim, email me if you want more info

Yes, too big. They put too much strain on the wheel bearings and the drivetrain. The tires will be excessively expensive, and the ride will be VERY uncomfortable.
Says someone from 2005. 20s made from aluminum allot are very lite weight. And now days in 2022 twenty inch tires are very inexpensive and easy to find. Thought I would give an update. Welcome:)

Stick with 18's or 17's. Unless it's a "show car only".
