    19s on astra - how do they affect car?

    was looking at wheels today, had some 19s offered upto the car and they looked awesome, but how would they affect handling etc etc on the car? and heavyness on the steering load?

    possibly gonna go just for the 18s, but we will see.

    If you get the right size handling is not hampered in any way, with regards heavyness, it depends on the weight of the wheel. Some 19's are as heavy as some other 18's. I never found it a problem.
