Is going from 17" rims to 19's or 20's make any significant difference with a Hybrid or is it mostly for esthetics?
I'm debating looking for some bigger/sleeker rims for my Hybrid Accord but if anyone had information in regards to better mileage, gas consumption or if it would be only for looks I would greatly appreciate it
The ride quality will be stiff for 20's, I have the OEM sport 19's now and they feel good. I have yet to put my winter 17's on that have a nice juicy tire which I'm sure they will be very comfy
But for 20's you will get a very nice aggressive look and with our cars, being able to run larger wheels will make the car look very nice and stand out.
For my preference, if I plan to get aftermarket wheels I will stick with the 19 diameter but will opt for the 9.5 width for more grip and will make the wheels flush with the fender to give it a nice square stance look.
Since I live in Rhode Island where there are bumps and potholes, that 19 inch will have a better survivability than 20's (along with doing my best to evade them lol), ideally I would like to run 18's but I feel like it won't look right especially since I have the sport trim with that nice low aggressive look that I like
