    I'm running 19's on my 5 door and it don't feel too bad to be honest. I had to have the rear arches rolled which cost me £100 and the front wheels rub if you take a corner too fast but apart from that its all good and they look good aswell.

    Coupe - there's a few i know that've gone up from 18s to 19s or straight onto 19s but i'd have to check because i'm unsure of a couple.

    Mines on 19" BBS rims atm - had all my arches rolled about never have any rubbing on the rear but the front can rub occasionally, my wheels are fairly wide though.

    Rides comfy enough, you feel alot more in the road and there is a bit of a noticeable performance downgrade, but only when you go into the same car with smaller wheels. You most likely won't notice it, i only noticed after driving a courtesy one i had from the body shop.
