hey HOTTHATCH69HOTTHATCH69 said:sorry not to burst your bubble... but as me having a rim thats 19x9.5 in the rear of the car and driving through snowy weather and everything... I haven't had no problems with it at all... I put these rims on the car when it had less then 500 miles on it...the car now has 8900 miles on it . Plus axis backs up that it fits on the car. I have a falken 265/30/19 in the rear...and I kid you not, I dont have one bent or crack and drive the car everywhere and everyday....all over New York and New Jersey. So i wouldn't say that its not good for braking or handling.. I would say my handling improved more then anything having a wider rim &tire on my car.
