I just checked, I have 9.5 et22 btw

Sorry if its confusing.
Ok I think I understand now. This is a tough one... I generally prefer wider tires / wheels but I'm not a fan of the v12's. If you were considering the Hankook RS3's it would be an easy decision (I would choose the wider 18" RS3's). I would expect the PS2's to outperform the v12's even if the PS2's are narrower and larger diameter. You won't notice much difference in casual driving.

From an aesthetic standpoint I would choose the 19's if the car was at stock ride height. The 18's are best when the car is lowered on coilovers.
