Dude, I don't like them either, and I'm from Massachusetts.

19" OD are the standard size of all the world's high performance cars. 20"+ are bling unless you are talking trucks.

Though I think that the stock 18" will look good with winter tires on them.

By the way, all the 0-60 mi/hr times in 4.1 s in this car have been clocked with these optional 19", so any theoretical inertial disadvantages of the slightly higher mass or larger diameter do not translate to the real world.
