I've decided to sell my 19" wheel so I can downgrade to something smaller. I've only had these wheels for no longer than 6-7 months. They are in very good condition. They have minor wears and tears. No Curb Damage. I'll let them go for $1,200 shipped or picked up. Price is negotiable. Please... No Low Ballers!!

For fast replies - please email me at [email protected]

Wheel Specs:
-19x7.5 inches
-ADR Fuel Universal 4x114.3
-Offset +42 or +43
-Hankook Ventus Tires - 225/35/19 - 75-80% tread left
-(3) Center Cap Good Condition - (1) Logo came off

I decided to downgrade for performance and better gas mileage. I'm thinking about getting 17's or 18's G Games 77S, which are light weight.

I'm not too sure but i think it has something to do with "unsprung weight"?? but yea since the rims are bigger it takes longer for it to accelerate, so in return it uses more gas?? I dont know i'm just rambling its late and i got to study for an exam...

Bigger wheels = Heavier load - requires more power to rotate, which makes your car work harder resulting in more gas usage.

e.g. - you have 5 people driving in your car w/ a bunch of heavy junk in your trunk as well. When you’re at WOT, your car doesn’t feel as fast versus you driving alone. Same scenario with driving w/ big wheels. The are heavier the wheels – the slower the car.

I found out on a full tank of gas - about 15 gallons - I can get nearly 280-310mi on a full tank w/ my 19's.

Recently, I put my EX wheels (15"inch) back on for winter and I notice the gas mileage increase. Now, I'm getting nearly 340-360mi on a full tank. :eek:
