i am thinking about getting new rims sometime down the line. as i look at different styles and stuff i would like to know which is better, 18" or 19"? i know whether or not your car is lowered determines the maximum wheel size, so for my car it will not be lowered. i would really like to get 19s becasue they look the best but are there rubbing issues with 19" rims on the tC?

Personally, I don't dig 19's. I dig 18's, 20's. Why? Because their even numbers,


17 for stock is huge, so thats why I also like 17. I'd vote 18, so you wouldn't have to worry about rubbing.

Personally, I think 18"s are the perfect fit, or lowered on 17"s. I don't think I've seen a tC lowered on 18"s yet...

Here's a link to UrbanRacer.com & their review/pics:

& this is what they had to say...
QUOTE
The Beyonce-sexy optional 19” inch TRD wheels were not as harsh-riding as you would think and there is only a minimal amount of rubbing – only in heavy turns. The caveat to running the 19” wheel is of course, like in any other car, the dulled responses and heavy-footed feel of having 19” worth of unsprung mass at each corner (like asking Shaq to do a Irish jig).[/b]

Up at the top of the page, you click on the "my controls" button . Once that screen loads, look on the left hand margin for the "edit profile info" button. Click on that.....and the first box will say "custom user banner" or something like that, and you just type it in and save! - t
