Dam I just put my factory 17 inch wheels back on and the ride sucks. The car seems like it accelerates slower and corners really sluggish. I miss my 19s already.

Just my opinion but

Maybe its just me but I just took the 19s off and I swear it felt like the car didnt jump like it use to and on cornering, it was slow to react. All the maneuvers were sluggish.

:dunno: I thought the 17's would accelerate faster than the 19's:dunno:
I agree. I just swithed back to 17" wheels form 19" for summer, and found quite the opposite,.. more handling & responsiveness.

First time I have heard that mentioned like you say..

Road feel is definitely less

The road feel is definitely less you cant tell how hard to push it around corners.

Tire pressure

I put my tires at 39 fronts and 46 rears like the door sticker said to. Im starting to get use to the 17s now. I still miss the way the 19s look by filling in the wheel wells so nicely.
