19" is not a problem but we need more info to know if they'll fit. Offsets, widths, etc.

I think it comes down to the offset. From my understanding you need 40mm front and about 50mm rear.225 35 19 front and 25530 19 rear.

I would think not if you live in a snowy clime. C&D reported difficulties with 18" wheels and snow building up in the wheel wells, with 19" you would have to get what basically amounts to rim protectors for tires.

The same would hold true for potholed roads...you might end up lunching a couple rims per year.

Then again, I have no idea where Dudley is, and what the hell do I know...I've already had two whiskies this evening...

Edit: Three if you count that third one I had.

The tire determines rolling diameter, not the wheel. Still need widths and offsets though. People are running 20s on 1ers just fine, just need to make sure everything fits.

Just because you can...doesn't mean you should.

We've helped a couple of customers with 19" Forgestars and 19" ADVANs. Both fit great as long as you had the right offsets for the 1 Series.

PM me if you have any questions about those fitments!

+1

19"s on a 1er is fine, we've seen it and done it before with the wheels we carry. Just gotta get the offset and sizes down with the right tire, and you're good.
